This protobiface belongs to the oldest Early Acheulean known so far in East Africa and in the world. It has been shaped on a thick cobble (L = 203mm, W = 164mm, T = 69mm)  by a series of convergent removals struck from the edges and on one face only, to obtain a pointed extremity.


The specimens displayed on this site are published specimens unless otherwise indicated. The information about the artifacts on this site is of a general nature only and unless otherwise indicated, has been written either by members of the African Fossils team, the National Museums of Kenya or the Turkana Basin Institute. The printed models are not of a high enough resolution to enable accurate scientific measurements and have generated using photogrammetry and in some cases low resolution digital models have been generated using laser scanners.
