THE LOWER AWASH VALLEY

 

The Lower Valley of Awash is located at the extreme north-eastern end of Africa's Great Rift Valley. It includes one of the most important groups of paleontological sites on the African continent.

Excavations, since 1973, have revealed a wealth of hominid (and other animal) fossils dating back 4 million years. These findings have changed our view of human evolution completely.

The most spectacular discovery was made in 1974 when 52 fragments of a small hominid enabled the reconstruction of the famous Lucy, an adult female of the species Australopithecus Afarensis. At 3.2 million years old, Lucy provided the earliest record of one of our hominid ancestors walking on two feet. The study of this early hominid skeleton has provided clues as to when and how humans began to walk upright.
