Plio-Pleistocene archaeological sites in the Nachukui Formation, West Turkana, Kenya: synthetic results 1997–2001. Stretched along the western side of the Turkana Basin, the Nachukui Formation preserves a large number of Plio-Pleistocene archaeological sites. Research carried out by the WTAP documents hominid behavioral evolution and technical diversity, through a time period ranging from 2.35 Myr to 0.7 Myr and within a relatively precise chronostratigraphic and paleoenvironmental frame. This work is based on comprehensive excavations conducted between 1997 and 2001 at the Late Pliocene and Early Pleistocene site complexes of the formation.

For years, I've worked on their bones. Now I'm working on their genes. Read more about the science studying these ancient people.
From a finger bone of an ancient human came the record of a completely unexpected population. My lab is working on the science of the Denisova genome.
The advent of agriculture caused natural selection to speed up greatly in humans. We're uncovering some of the ways that populations have rapidly changed during the last 10,000 years.
