Kenya: School trip with a difference

Featured on the ICN website

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.
