Caption: Excavation site at East Turkana in northern Kenya. The East Turkana expedition began in 1968 and was lead by Richard Leakey. It comprised an 800 square kilometre region, rich in hominid and other fossils, many of which were exposed by sparse, but heavy seasonal rains. In 1969 Leakey personally discovered a hominid skull Australopithecus robustus, and in 1972 a second skull, known as 1470 after its museum number, was discovered.
