Olduvai Gorge is a valley incised by a seasonal river at the southeastern margin of the Serengeti Plains. The rocks that crop out in the Gorge span the last 2 million years and are very rich in paleontological and archeological remains, offering a clear glimpse of human evolution in the context of East African Quaternary environmental changes.
