Kanam

Archaeological site found in 1932, located at Kendu Bay, Lake Victoria in Kenya, dated to the early Pleistocene (500 kya), and that contains hominid remains including a mandibular fragment originally attributed to Homo kanamensis. The validity of Louis Leakey’s claims for great antiquity were strongly challenged by the geologist Boswell; the ultimate attribution of the fossil is still in doubt.
