Chellean Man

Paleontologist Louis Leakey’s name for the fossil hominid that he and Mary Leakey pursued for over 30 years at Olduvai Gorge, the alleged maker of the Chellean tools (actually Acheulean, as the Chellean tradition is restricted to Europe). Leakey found what he believed to be this Man in December, 1960; see OH 9 and site LLK II.
