      Similar stone tools have been found in the world-famous Olorgesailie site on the road to Lake Magadi, and which date close to million years. At Ngobit site, the archaeologists have collected. Evidence from various sites, most notably Kapthurin in Kenya (Barham ; McBrearty anci Brooks ) and Twin Rivers in Zambia (Barham (Barham, , includes the accumulation of largi.

      More evidence for long-term variability in Homo erectus comes with the recent discovery of a skull at Olorgesailie, a Middle Pleistocene lakebed site in southern Kenya. The small, relatively gracile Homo erectus cranium shows affinities with both Lake Turkana and Dmanisi hominids (Potts et al. ).   Dietary change among hominins is a critical aspect of human evolution. Here we use carbon isotope data from fossil teeth of hominins, monkeys, and other mammals from Ethiopia to document C 4 food consumption by both hominins and the baboon, Theropithecus oswaldi, during the early expansion of hominin diet and the appearance of the Theropithecus oswaldi Cited by:

Review of the evidence for Theropithecus butchery at Olorgesailie by C. P. Koch Download PDF EPUB FB2

The majority of sites previously excavated at Olorgesailie have been interpreted as occupation sites, or stable home bases, of hunter-gatherers. One site (DE/89B) preserved numerous bones of extinct gelada monkeys (Theropithecus oswaldi) and is thought to represent systematic hunting and butchery by hominids (Isaac, ; Shipman et al., ).Cited by: Olorgesailie in the southern Kenya Rift is famous for its unusual abundance of hominin artefacts, fossil mammals and palaeoenvironmental indicators, preserved in sediments spanning ~ to butchery behaviour 5 and taphonomy 6, dating and palaeoenvironmental and climatic changes and Cited by: 7.

Jablonski This unique volume provides a comprehensive and up-to-date examination of all aspects of the biology of the Old World monkey genus, Theropithecus, which evolved alongside our human ancestors.

The palaeoenvironments associated with Australopithecus (Paranthropus) robustus have generally been reconstructed as habitat mosaics; typically open, arid grasslands in the vicinity of woodlands or forests with a nearby source of permanent water.

Disentangling which aspect(s) of these mosaics might have been preferred by the hominins presents a significant challenge. Suggested edits: Edit Theropithecus#Phylogeny_and_fossils to include information about Theropithecus at Olorgesailie.

5 (): Its fauna is modern compared with that of Olorgesailie Members 1–7 (ca. 07 Ma). From preliminary survey and mapping of surface finds, Lainyamok was initially interpreted as a possible location of hominid butchery activity.

Associated clusters of bones of single animals and stone artifacts were found eroding out from a lake margin by: From the Olduvai site of FLK Zinjanthropus (Leakey, ), for example, evidence of numerous cut marks on meaty bones and of hammerstone-related fractures on marrow-rich limb bones has led Bunn & Kroll (t) to conclude that hominids ate significant quantities of meat and marrow.

The second is devoted to analysis of the prehistoric evidence in light of findings derived from the first line of investigation.

Properly pursued, taphonomy can provide paleoecologists with information about the spatial, temporal, and biological factors involved in the formation of fossil assemblages.

We use this approach to create a landscape reconstruction of Olorgesailie, a key site in the East African Rift with abundant evidence of large-mammal butchery between ~ and ~ Ma BP.

Another line of evidence for the diet of H. habilis comes from some of the earliest cut- and percussion-marked bones, found back to million years ago. Scientists usually associate these traces of butchery of large animals, direct evidence of meat and marrow eating, with the earliest appearance of the genus Homo, including H.

The most probable interpretation of the evidence is that the hominids at Olorgesailie systematically and repeatedly hunted and butchered giant geladas. This is the first evidence of such a behavior in the fossil by: This paper presents the find of a Mammuthus primigenius carcass and associated Mousterian implements from the Last Glacial site of Asolo, in north-eastern Italy.

We review the exploitation of proboscidean carcasses at Lower and Middle Paleolithic sites of Africa, Europe and the Levant, including evidence of elephant killing, and summarize recent research on hafting and use of Mousterian points.

Suggested edits: Include new section about Olorgesailie Drilling Project, as well as update existing sections for accuracy and detail. History of excavation at the site, the various prehistoric environmental conditions, information about the fauna (including updating the bit where it says that the animals were likely butchered, which aside from one known butchery site, is not accurate), are.
