Stone Age Man in Kenya Colony

Naturevolume 120pages8586 (1927) | Download Citation



IN September 1926 I sailed from England accompanied by Mr. B. H. Newsam to investigate certain prehistoric sites which I had known of for some years in Kenya Colony? My expedition received financial aid from the Percy Sladen Memorial Fund and the Government Grant Committee of the Royal Society, the assistance of which is gratefully acknowledged. Stone tools of many types had been collected by myself and many others from the surface in Kenya Colony and the other East African territories for a good many years, and it was hoped that the work of the expedition this year would bring to light sites containing stone tools associated with human remains.
