This project is the realization of a dream born on the shores of Lake Turkana in northern Kenya in the final days of the last millennium. While living and working at Koobi Fora, a common purpose was realized as we pursued the nature of our origins literally in the footsteps of our distant ancestors.
We exist to serve both the community involved in the field and the public at large. In an area of study where division is too often the norm, we strive to be a forum for the unity of ideas and synthesis of a common human evolutionary model. We realize the need for public education regarding our origins, so we share here with the world our fascination with where we came as we strive to popularize the idea of our shared past.
We hope you find the information contained herein both useful and inspiring.
