The evolution of Lucy

By Michael J.W. Stickings

There's been a fascinating discovery in Ethiopia:

The 3.3-million-year-old fossilised remains of a human-like child have been unearthed in Ethiopia's Dikika region.

The female Australopithecus afarensis bones are from the same species as an adult skeleton found in 1974 which was nicknamed "Lucy".

For more on fossils and evolution, which those who live in darkness still deny, see here (with links to related stories).
