Lucy was discovered in 1974 near the village Hadar in the Awash Valley of the Afar Triangle in Ethiopia by paleoanthropologist Donald Johanson. The Lucy specimen is an early australopithecine and is dated to about 3.2 million years ago.
41st anniversary celebrated by Google on his discovery of  ” Lucy “.

‘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.
