Olduvai Gorge by L. S. B Leakey( Book )

58 editions published between 1965 and 2009 in English and held by 1,023 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Olduvai is one of the most important prehistoric sites in the world; indeed, the only Middle Pleistocene site of comparable importance is Choukoutien and Olduvai can show deposits far older. The site has produced a mass of material of the highest archaeological and palaeontology importance and in this first of five volumes Dr Leakey and his collaborators make their preliminary reports. The story of the excavations initiated by Dr Leakey in 1951 is well known. Their purpose was to locate and uncover a series of living-floors of early Hand-axe man and, if possible, of the preceding Olduwan culture. The discoveries were of striking and far-reaching importance. They included, besides a mass of tools and artefacts, small animal and human remains and the famous skull of Zinjanthropus boisei, the earliest tool-making man. Against this background Leakey and his collaborators discuss the geological evidence, its relation to the fauna and other fossil evidence, the problems of climatic sequence and the use of potassium-argon dating. The purpose of this volume is to provide a context in which the fossil human remains and the Stone Age cultural sequence at Olduvai can be studied

30 years of National Geographic specials by National Geographic Society( Visual )

1 edition published in 1994 in English and held by 444 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A compilation of highlights and clips from past programs of the National Geographic televised documentaries, marking the 30-year anniversary of the Society's documentary production. From the very first National Geographic special in 1963, which followed a team of Americans as they ascended Mt. Everest, content ranges from wilderness to cultural exploration. Through these programs, National Geographic offered a broad variety of sights and perspectives which were previously unknown to the average viewing public. Still bearing historical value, examples include segments from the films that helped promote and popularize such issues as species and habitat protection and the works of Dr. Louis Leakey, Jacques Cousteau, Dian Fossey, and Jane Goodall
The stone age cultures of Kenya Colony by L. S. B Leakey( Book )

28 editions published between 1931 and 2013 in English and held by 402 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Louis Seymour Bazett Leakey (1903-72) was a British archaeologist, naturalist and palaeoanthropologist who made a significant contribution to the study of human evolutionary development. First published in 1931, this work presents the results of two periods of excavation by the East African Archaeological Expedition during 1926-7 and 1928-9. As noted in the preface, the findings of these excavations enabled the Expedition 'to work out a number of clear subdivisions in Pleistocene and recent times, based upon climatic changes, and to establish in most cases the relation of the cultures found to these time divisions.' The text contains numerous illustrative figures, including original drawings and photographs. Numerous appendices are also included. This book will be of value to anyone with an interest in archaeology, anthropology and East Africa

22 editions published between 1951 and 1991 in English and Undetermined and held by 182 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

On 15 August 1959 Dr L. S. B. Leakey announced the discovery, in the lowest level of Olduvai Gorge, of a new and beautifully preserved fossil cranium of a hominid, which he tentatively named Zinjanthropus boisei. For this second volume, Professor Tobias has undertaken a definitive analysis of the cranium. This is a most comprehensive study to be made on a hominid skull belonging to the early and mid-Pleistocene group of australopithecines. The fossilised skull provides a wealth of information on taxonomic status, way of life and age at death. To evaluate Zinjanthropus fully, the author has reviewed in detail the cranial and dental anatomy of all australopithecines from Tanzania and South Africa and has placed on record much valuable information about the group as a whole
