Dr. Allan Morton

Allan possesses qualities and quirks that epitomize the unhinged, archaeological spirit. He has worked as a professional archaeologist for twenty years. His scientific interest started with the archaeology of human origins and he spent eight years working for Harvard University in the deserts of northern Kenya.

Allan conducted research for his Doctorate on the remote and dangerous shores of the Jade Sea – a beautiful desert lake writhing with Nile crocodiles and seething with volcanoes on Kenya’s border with Ethiopia. He discovered an early human fossil that later became identified as a new species of hominid: Australopithecus anamensis. Allan can truly be called a world traveller, having conducted archaeology on five continents.
