"Lucy"

We were among the very first visitors on the opening day of the Lucy exhibit at the Pacific Science Center. We were surprised and ultimately delighted with the historical background about Ethiopia and the excellent explanations of the anthropological techniques involved in dating the fossils and determining Lucy’s bipedalism. The bones themselves were absolutely stunning. It’s been thirty-plus years since I sat in the classroom listening to lectures on physical anthropology but I’ve never lost interest in the area and seeing the Lucy fossils up close was a thrilling experience.
