Lucy (Australopithecus) is the common name of AL 288-1, several hundred pieces of bone representing about 40% of the skeleton of an individual Australopithecus afarensis. In paleoanthropology, usually only fossil fragments were found, and only rarely were skulls or ribs uncovered intact; thus this discovery was an astounding feat, that provided an overwhelming amount of scientific evidence. It was discovered in 1974 at Hadar in the Awash Valley of Ethiopia’s Afar Depression. Lucy is estimated to have lived 3.2 million years ago,and is either directly ancestral to humans, or evolutionarily close to our ancestor, hence it is classified as a hominin. The skeleton shows evidence of small skull capacity akin to that of apes and of bipedal upright walk akin to that of humans, supporting the debated view that bipedalism preceded increase in brain size in human evolution.
