Fort Ternan Tool

Single object made of lava found by Heselon Kukiri among some fractured antelope bones at the Fort Ternan site in 1967; as this was the sole lava object at the site, Louis Leakey interpreted it as a tool, and attributed its use to Kenyapithecus wickeri. This interpretation is questioned by most of the archaeological community.
