Archaeological site found in 1968 in Koobi Fora, East Turkana, Kenya, dated to 1.6-1.5 mya and excavated by a team led by Glynn Isaac. The site contained flakes, choppers and scraping tools, possibly Oldowan. At least 17 mammal species are represented by over 200 bones, mostly antelope, some of which have also been chewed by other carnivores, but some bones exhibit cut marks, positive evidence of butchery, and suggesting hominid meat-eating and food transport. Aka Site 50.
