Lucy was found by Donald Johanson and Tom
Gray on November 24, 1974, in what is now called
the Awash Valley in Hadar (Ethiopia). She has
been classified in the species
and dated to just under 3,18 million
years old, making her at the time one of the oldest
hominids ever discovered. The Ethiopian National
Museum in Addis Ababa displays a fascinating
reconstructed full skeleton of Lucy that shows her
height and stance and this lively presentation.
