the Turkana BasinA lecture last night by Dr. John Shea of SUNY Stony Brook Dept. of Anthropology at a local favorite resaurant included a demonstration of flintknapping , he made several tools for us in thirty minutes including a spear head, arrow head and hand axe. Delightful and impressive. He talked about the ongoing research in the Turkana Basin in northern Kenya and some of the progress/discoveries being made there on the origins of Homo Sapiens. See the recent NOVA program on evolution here. The food and conversation were wonderful and by the end of the meal I was being recruitted to teach air traffic control at Dowling College by the Dean of Arts and Sciences.
