African Skeleton"In 1913, Professor Hans Reck, of Berlin University, found a human skeleton in the upper part of Bed II at Olduvai Gorge in Tanzania. Modern dating methods give a late Early Pleistocene date of around 1.15 million years for this site. Reck said, 'The bed in which the human remains were found....showed no sign of disturbance.'

The skeleton was distorted by compression from the weight of substantial accumulation of sediment in the overlying strata. W. O. Dietrich, writing in 1933, stated that this feature of the skeleton argued against its being a recent, shallow burial. George Grant MacCurdy, a leading anthropologist from Yale University, considered Reck's discovery to be genuine."[1/2]
