Fossil Discovery Confirms Advanced Human-Like Walking is Ancient

Meet "Lucy's" Great-Grandfather. Cleveland Museum of Natural History Curator and Head of Physical Anthropology Dr. Yohannes Haile-Selassie led an international team that discovered and analyzed a 3.6 million-year-old partial skeleton found in Ethiopia. The early hominid is 400,000 years older than the famous "Lucy" skeleton and is significantly larger in size. Research on the new specimen reveals that advanced human-like, upright walking occurred much earlier in the evolutionary timeline than previously thought. Haile-Selassie is the first author of the initial analysis of the specimen, which will be published in the online early edition of the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences during the week of June 21, 2010.

Etiopiasta on löydetty kuuluisaa Lucya noin 400 000 vuotta vanhempi australopithecus afarensiksen osittainen luuranko. Löytö osoittaa, että ihmisen kaltainen pystykävely on syntynyt oletettua varhemmin. Löydetyt luut kuuluvat Lucya huomattavasti kookkaammalle miespuoliselle A. afarensikselle joka saanut nimekseen Kadanuumuu (="iso mies" afarin kielellä).
