CSI: Olduvai Gorge. The work of Jackson Njau
Today, Jackson is a professor of geological sciences at Indiana University, but he returns to Africa each summer to Olduvai and other paleoanthropological sites in Tanzania to continue his own investigations. Though the terrain at his dig sites may be familiar, he (thankfully) has no childhood experience with the focus of his research today: crocodile predation on early hominids.
