Our ancestors

Our ancestors

Some of you may remember that in 1974, in Ethiopia a group of anthropologists found some remains of human-like creature.
She got a name Lucy and back then people have wondered if she is really the direct ancestor of humans, or to better say “ Homo sapiens” .
Some newspapers went that far and called her our mother, but still they couldn’t convince everyone about their theory.

Few days ago another fossil was found which led to so many different questions again. On the other hand the finder said that precisely this fossil is the proof that Lucy’s species had existed.

They gave this fossil a name Australopithecus deyiremeda and scientists think that Lucy along with this hominid were probably part of a large group and that they do present direct harbinger.
Some evidence show that there are at least three or four early human species and they believe that they lived close to each other and that they have also lived at the same time. Still there are some differences between Lucy and this fossil.

They discovered that this fossil had different teeth (size and shape) and bones. Also they added that the lower jaw was more robustious.
People are trying for so many years to learn and find out more about the human odyssey and that subject has always caused a lot of conflicts between people. Scientists are becoming more and more skeptical about every new species they find which isn’t anything unusual.
