eLucy can help you learn more about the world’s most famous fossil, Lucy, a member of the species Australopithecus afarensis, who lived 3.2 million years ago. Discovered in 1974 in Ethiopia, Lucy is unique because over 40% of her skeleton was recovered, making her one of the most complete australopithecine fossils ever found. This website provides activities and lessons that will help you to learn about Lucy’s place in human evolution. Some activities are online, but others can be completed offline. After studying Lucy, you can investigate other aspects of human evolution at eFossils.org, or learn more about the skeleton at eSkeletons.org.
