Olduvai Groge is a valley in the Serengeti Plains at the western margin of the Eastern Rift Valley in northern Tanzania. The formations discussed in this volume, Beds I and II, were deposited in the Lower and Middle Pleistocene and have yielded large quantities of the remains of early man, in the form of bones and stone tools and evidence of the environment in which they lived.

I had heard about this before heading to Africa in , but once I witnessed just how fast they can run, and how mean they can be, I made sure my daughter and I were always close. Louis Leakey, in full Louis Seymour Bazett Leakey, also called Louis S.B. Leakey, (born August 7, , Kabete, Kenya—died October 1, , London, England), Kenyan archaeologist and anthropologist whose fossil discoveries in East Africa proved that human beings were far older than had previously been believed and that human evolution was centred in Africa, rather than in Asia, as earlier.

To investigate the origins of the Acheulean in Olduvai, the Olduvai Geochronology and Archaeology Project (OGAP) is reappraising the chrono-stratigraphy of Bed II, and excavating fossil and stone tool sites in Olduvai Middle and Upper Bed II. These beds preserve a critical interval of time ( - million years) which evidences changes in fauna, stone tools and climate. The handaxe was found in by Louis Leakey in the Olduvai Gorge in Tanzania, and is dated to about million years ago. It was crafted from a block of hard, green lava called phonolite by.
