Archaeological site found in 1997 in West Lake Turkana, Kenya, dated to 2.34 mya (Nachukui formation), and that contains choppers and animal remains. Some 3000 individual specimens made possible the refitting of some 60 sets of stone artifacts. According to researchers, the core reduction sequences could be reconstructed, which led to the conclusion that the early hominids responsible had a greater cognitive capacity and motor skill than previously assumed.
