Land of origins


In 1974 American paleoanthropologist Donald Johanson discovered the skeleton of “Lucy,” a 3.2-million-year-old female of the early human species Australopithecus afarensis, at Hadar, Ethiopia. Until the late 1990s, Lucy’s was the most complete skeleton of an australopithecine ever found. Australopithecines were primitive humans that first evolved over 4.4 million years ago. Lucy’s pelvis and leg bones, similar to those of modern humans, indicate that she regularly walked upright.
