LUCY’S RELATIVE  Fossils discovered in Ethiopia, including this partial upper jaw with teeth, come from a hominid species that lived alongside Lucy’s species between 3.5 million and 3.3 million years ago, researchers say.  ~~ Y. Haile-Selassie

Fossils suggest another hominid species lived near Lucy

The Lucy Man by Cap Saucier: Scientists dream of making a discovery that changes the way we think. That dream came true for Dr. Donald C. Johanson when he found the most famous fossil in history, Lucy (Australopithecus afarensis). It was 1974, in Ethiopia, and Johanson was just beginning his career...

Addis Ababa - National Museum - Lucy.  In Ethiopia, Lucy is also known as Dinkinesh, which means "you are marvelous" in the Amharic language. To gaze on her tiny 1.1m frame in her country of discovery is awesome!

Addis Ababa - National Museum.  Lucy is the most famous fossil specimen of our remote ancestors ever found. She is a collection of fossilised bones that once made up the skeleton of a hominid from the Australopithecus afarensis species. She lived in Ethiopia 3.2 million years ago. Unearthed in 1974, the discovery was remarkably complete - 40% of her skeleton was found intact, rather than just a handful of incomplete and damaged fossils that usually make up remains of a similar age.
