An Archaeological Investigation on the Loboi Plain, Baringo District, KenyaWilliam R. Farrand 1976
To mark the completion of their digitization, UMMAA titles are temporarily free-to-read until the end of September 2021.
In 1973, researchers from the University of Michigan conducted a survey in the Loboi area, north of Lake Bogoria (Lake Hannington) in west Kenya, north of Nairobi. The goal of the project was to record archaeological remains in the area. In 1965, Mary Leakey had noted the presence of stone tools and faunal remains in Loboi, and her son Richard Leakey, director of the National Museums of Kenya, suggested the area should be further studied. In addition to the intensive survey, the researchers excavated seven small test units at five sites and recovered archaeological materials.
