Abstract:

This report describes preliminary results of ongoing research in the Ntuka area, Narok District, Kenya, where surveys and test excavations for Middle Stone Age (MSA) and early Later Stone Age (LSA) occurrences were conducted in June and July of 1994 and 1995. The primary objective of the field research is to find and excavate sites with well preserved faunal remains that date to the late MSA and early LSA in order to evaluate the hypothesis that MSA/LSA transition and the origin of modern human behavior occurred first in East Africa. Other sites in the region dating earlier and later are also reported.
