Pupils from Our Lady Queen of Peace School in Todonyang, north east Kenya enjoyed a memorable day out last Friday, when they travelled more than 50k to visit a rare archaeological site as well as the Nariokotome Mission.
The Nariokotome Boy site is located at Nariokotome in the western side of Lake Turkana. Nariokotome Boy is the name given to fossil KNM-WT 15000, a nearly complete skeleton of a boy aged 7- 11 years old, who lived 1.5 to 1.6 million years ago. This specimen is the most complete early human skeleton ever found in the world. It was discovered in 1984 by Kamoya Kimeu, working with Dr Richard Leakey and his team on the bank of the Nariokotome River near Lake Turkana.
