Abstract

This work presents the new round of archaeological research undertaken in SHK Main site since 2009. Through new geological correlations and dating within the Bed II sequence and a new stratigraphic description of the site, new chronological and contextual information is provided for this site. Archaeo-stratigraphic analysis of the vertical distribution of the archaeological aggregate, a GIS-based restitution of the horizontal associations, and a taphonomic interpretation of the formation processes allow a first intra-site analysis of this high-density anthropogenic patch within the paleo-landscape of the Olduvai basin.
