Olduvai Gorge

Also of interest in the conservation area is the Olduvai Gorge. This important archaeological site has revealed ancient skull and bone fragments that provided important information about early humanity.
Olduvai Gorge is an archaeological site located on a series of fault lines, where centuries of erosion have revealed fossils and early human remains. As early as 1911, a German professor found some fossil bones while searching for butterflies at Olduvai Gorge. On a later expedition, the Leakeys collected skull, skull, and bone fragments estimated to be around two million years old. Hunting tools and weapons from 1 to 1.5 million years ago were discovered at this site.
Another exciting find is the famous footprints of a man, woman and child in Lytoli, near Olduvai. These and other discoveries provide more evidence for the theory that at least three species of humans were in this region more than two million years ago.
