Archaeological site found in 1981 in the Afar Basin along the Middle Awash River region of Ethiopia, dated to about 4-3.4 mya, and that contains hominid remains, including a proximal femoral fragment (MAK-VP-1/1), an adult mandible (MAKVP-1/12), and other remains from both large and small individuals, all attributed to Australopithecus afarensis and comparable to similar fossils from Hadar and Laetoli.
