Abstract: An excavation has been carried out at the SH22 locality where a fossil of a large hominoid (KNM-SH-8531) was found in 1982. This site is located in the Samburu Hills, northern Kenya and dated back to upper Miocene. During the 1984 field season, a large number of new fossils were recovered at this locality. These fossils and sedimentological analysis revealed that the fossil bed at the SH22 locality may be a marginal deposit of an abandoned channel on a dried lake floor.
