The Turkana Basin Institute is proud to offer unique full-semester and summer field school programs, focused on prehistory, through Stony Brook University. The programs address the place that humans occupy in the natural world and how we came to occupy that place. Program modules cover Ecology, Geology, Vertebrate Paleontology, Archaeology, and Human Evolution. Participants will gain hands-on experience in field survey and excavation methods, paleoenvironmental reconstruction, taphonomy and more, and will take field trips to important paleontological and archaeological sites, diverse ecological settings, and remarkable geological features throughout the Turkana Basin in northern Kenya.
