The area described lies on the southern shores of the Kavirondo gulf, an eastern embayment of lake Victoria. Human remains were discovered in 1932 at Kanam and Kanjera in Pleistocene beds, but it has not been possible to establish with certainty their age. The Pleistocene geology was studied and the sequence of the beds determined.
