Earliest known home of humankind
Ethiopia is also the earliest known home of humankind, with the discovery of “Lucy,” the skeleton of a woman who lived 3.5 million years ago.
Ethiopia is arguably considered to be the “home of our human ancestors”.
The fossil of Lucy “Dinknesh”, which is about 3.2 million years old, is the most prominent one.
Lucy is arguably the most famous of all early human individuals due to her age and relative completeness.
