The Old Man of Olduvai Gorge Irrepressible Louis Leakey, patriarch of the fossil-hunting family, championed the search for human origins in Africa, attracting criticism and praiseAuthor: Roger Lewin.

    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. Olduvai Gorge is known as the cradle of mankind. Layer upon layer of volcanic deposits were laid down in orderly sequence over a period of almost two million years, making Olduvai Gorge a remarkable site that documents ancient life. It is here that Louis and Mary Leakey discovered ‘Nutcracker Man’ after nearly 30 years of excavation.

    The story is often qouted, especially after an article in the Time (10th March ) - in which Kattwinkel even nearly died, when falling into the gorge - even popular in German guide books. In Germany, Kattwinkel is even seen as an paleontologist now, as his most known academic success finally was the discovering of the fossil site.

Olduvai Gorge, in northern Tanzania, is internationally recognized for Louis and Mary Leakey’s famous discoveries of early humans and magnificent antiquities documenting the evolutionary history of our stone tool-using ancestors, vertebrate fauna, and the environments over the last two million years.

Olduvai is one of the most important prehistoric sites in the world; indeed, the only Middle Pleistocene site of comparable importance is Choukoutien and Olduvai can show deposits far older. The site has produced a mass of material of the highest archaeological and palaeontology importance and in this first of five volumes Dr Leakey and his collaborators make their preliminary reports.

The title of the book, Olduvai, is derived from the ‘Olduvai Theory’, proposed by Richard Duncan in Duncan argues that because of the imminent collapse in cheap and easy-to-access portable energy stores (fossil fuels) humanity is destined to return to a stone-age way of life with the global loss of the electrical power grid in the not-too-distant future.

Traditionally, fieldwork in Olduvai Gorge has focused in the oldest beds (Bed I) and therefore, sites located in the uppermost beds were only minimally studied and excavated.

This situation allows us to undertake a new project as ambitious and complete as the one already carried out in Bed I, aimed to the understanding of the connection between hominins and environment in this particular period of human.
