  •  Great diary! (15+ / 0-)

    Those interested in this type of stuff should try to get to the Bowers Museum in Santa Ana, CA to see the fossil of "Lucy", our oldest known ancestor, 3.2 Million years old.  We were fascinated and moved to see here actual skeleton and the evident humanity of her. It is extremely rare for her to be outside of Ethiopia.

    Lucy’s Legacy gives visitors the opportunity to further their understanding and place in the human family. Discovered in the late 20th century by American Paleoanthropologist Dr. Donald Johanson in Ethiopia, Lucy is the oldest and most complete adult fossil of a human ancestor that has been found in Africa to date. This exhibition is an opportunity for people to better understand current scientific theory of human evolution, and to see for themselves how the discovery of Lucy continues to profoundly influence our understanding of human origins—even 30 years after her discovery.
