Fossil jaw bones and teeth of the hominid Australopithecus afarensis, large numbers of which were found in the Afar region of Ethiopia between 1973 and 1977. The fossils were found in deposits dating from 2.6 to 3.3 million years ago. A. afarensis, the most complete skeleton of which is 'Lucy', is thought to represent the oldest ancestor of modern man. The australopithecines ranged throughout Africa from 3.7 to 1.6 million years ago.
