Louis Leaky: an excavating king


Born in Kenya on August 7th 1904 an anthropologist genius was born, his name was Louis Leaky and he was going to change the world. Over the years Leaky made incredible steps for the archaeology side of anthropology. In 1959 Louis and his wife began unearthing animal fossils and ancient tools. The Leaky team discovered the ancient fossil of our ancestors the Homo Habilis and his wife also discovered┬áthe Zinjanthropus bosei that was a muscle of one of our ancestors. If it was for the Leaky’s we would not know a lot of the things we do about our human body’s history.
