Casts of oldest tools presented to Musée de l’Homme, Paris

During a visit to France by Kenya’s President Uhuru Kenyatta, his Minister of Water Mr M. Wamalwa presented to the Musée de l’Homme (‘Museum of Mankind’) in Paris 4 resin casts of the world’s oldest stone tools from Lomekwi 3, West Turkana, Kenya.

Discovered by the WTAP team in 2011 and the subject of a high-profile publication in Nature in 2015, all original Lomekwi 3 tools remain in Kenya. The casts were presented in a ceremony that included speeches by the Minister of Water and the Director of the Museum, with the Eiffel Tower in the background.
