Kanjera

Archaeological site found in 1932, located at Kendu Bay on Lake Victoria in Kenya, alleged to date to the middle Pleistocene, containing hominid remains including a partial cranium (No. 3) originally attributed to an ancient species of Homo. Found by Louis Leakey, this site was subsequently dated to less than 10 kya, relegating the Kanjera specimen to the same fate as Reck’s Olduvai Man.
