What did Lucy’s Daughter Have for Dinner?

Dikika Research Project, California Academy of SciencesWhat did Lucy’s daughter have for dinner? Perhaps it was beef and mutton.

The new stone-tool-marked fossil animal bones from Dikika have been dated to approximately 3.4 million years ago and were found just 200 meters away from the site where Alemseged’s team discovered “Selam” in 2000. Dubbed “Lucy’s Daughter” by the international press, Selam was a young Australopithecus afarensis girl who lived about 3.3 million years ago and represents the most complete skeleton of a human ancestor discovered to date.
