Let’s see What Google says:
‘Lucy’ 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.
First discovered in 1973, the discovery was remarkably ‘complete’ – 40 per cent of her skeleton was found intact, rather than just ahandful of incomplete and damaged fossils that usually make up remains of a similar age.
The Doodle shows an Australopithecus afarensis walking between a chimpanzee and a human, marking the transition between the two species.
