on the west side of Lake Natron, some fifty miles north-east of Olduvai Gorge. Initial exploration of this area was carried out under the leadership of my son, Richard Leakey, who was later joined by Mr. Glynn Isaac, who took charge of the scientific side of the work. Mrs. Isaac, Mr. Richard Rowe and Philip Leakey also took part, as well as a number of our African staff. On January 11 one of our African staff, Mr. Kamoya Kimeu, located a magnificient fossil hominid jaw in situ (see Figs. 6 and… 
Newly Described Olduvai Hominid
TLDR
The specimens originally described by Broom and Robinson as Telanthropus capensis but later referred by Robinson (1961) to Homo erectus Dubois sp.
Variation among early Homo crania from Olduvai Gorge and the Koobi Fora region.

TLDR
There is now substantial support for the view that in the Turkana and perhaps also in the Olduvai assemblages, there is more variation than would be expected among male and female conspecifics.
The genus Homo in the early Pleistocene of Africa and Europe
The absence of fossil Homo from some periods in the Early Pleistocene (gaps in the fossil record), and the morphological variability between the specimens which we possess, has inhibited attempts to
Australopithecus sediba from Malapa, South Africa
First discovered in August of 2008, the site of Malapa, South Africa revealed two relatively complete partial skeletons that we assigned to a new species, Australopithecus sediba. Additional
The Origin of the Genus Homo
TLDR
The first good evidence of early Homo shows that the first members of the species H. erectus were very like the authors' own species in many respects, including large people with sexual dimorphism in body size to match that of modern human populations, relatively large brains, and had modern limb proportions that show physiological adaptations according to Allen’s rule.

Cultural Hominization among the Earliest African Pleistocene Hominids
  • P. Tobias
  • Geography, Environmental Science
    Proceedings of the Prehistoric Society
  • 1968
For over 40 years South Africa and for over 25 years East Africa have been yielding fossilized remains of creatures identified on their bony structure as lowly members of the Hominidae or human
Origins of Hominin Biocultural Diversity
TLDR
A large body of evidence to date, including palaeontological, geological, environmental, archaeological, ecological and biogeographic data allow the reconstruction of the major phases of early hominin evolution, including the onset of biocultural evolution of humans in Africa.
The Fossil Mammal Fauna of Africa

  • 1968
TLDR
An attempt is made to show by means of diagrams the apparent duration of African evolution for each mammalian family and to suggest the time and geographic origin or destination of imports and exports.
