Lucy Across the World

The remains of the famous Lucy, the fossilized partial skeleton of a 3 1/2’ hominid is the earliest known and forced scientists to rethink the course of human evolution after its discovery in 1974. It was found in North-Eastern Ethiopia and has only been displayed there twice. A replica is on display at the Natural History Museum there.

For the first time ever, the actual remains are being shipped out of the country for a tour across America. Ethiopian officials say they will use the money raised from the six-year tour to build new museums and improve existing ones. Many have voiced complaints against the tour, noting that these are irreplaceable artifacts.

New York, Chicago, and Denver are among the cities Lucy will visit.
