Caption: Australopithecine Lucien. Reconstruction of the Lucien specimen of Australopithecus afarensis. Lucien is the name given to the fossil skull AL-444, found in Ethiopia in 1991 and dating from 3 million years ago. This is from a male, unlike the more famous female specimen (Lucy) that was found in the Afar region of Ethiopia between 1973 and 1977. This hominin species lived between 3.9 and 2.9 million years ago, and is one of the earliest links in the human fossil record. Reconstruction by Elisabeth Daynes of the Daynes Studio, Paris, France.
