A Final Word From Our Team

A Final Word From Our Team

We have really enjoyed the opportunity to bring a bit of our research at Olorgesailie to you through this web site. While the dispatches for this field season stop today, excavations are going to continue through the last week of August. By the end of the season, we will have completed the excavations at the sites you have become familiar with (extending Site B7/8-1, hoping to solve the interesting puzzles it presents, tracing the interesting stone cobbles at the Elephant Site, and mapping out the relationship of early human behavior in the A11 sites). We will also continue our stratigraphic study of the basin, and we plan to put in several more excavations, particularly around sites A11-10 and 20, to further our understanding of this interesting landscape from 650,000 years ago.

So from our team, thank you for joining us!
