Lucy in Ethiopia with Images
September 8, 2005 1:42 PM   Subscribe

Lucy and Ethiopia From a favorite mailing list, I receive my dose of satellite images. One of the images this week is from Ethiopia. Reading the text they provide, you’ll see this is the area where ‘Australopithecus afarensis’ hails from; she is know as Lucy to most of us. Why Lucy? Because Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds was playing on the radio when they found her. The site also lead me to this guy, who has the title Paleo-Artist and has rather interesting artwork on his site.

Thanks fluffycreature. The second link seems to point to the wrong site?

Thanks for the Paleo-Artist link -- I am teaching a module on the visual rhetoric of archaeological illustration and there are some fabulous examples to dissect in there!
