Ethiopia, the cradle of humankind:

Ethiopia may well deserve the title Cradle of Humankind. Some of the most famous, most iconic hominid fossils have been discovered within the country’s borders. Ethiopia can claim many “firsts” in the hominid record book, including first stone tools and the first Homo sapiens. Here’s a look at the country’s most important hominid finds.

In 1974, the scientists announced the discovery of the oldest fossil skeleton of a human ancestor. Skeleton was named Lucy and became one of the most iconic hominid fossils and estimated that she walked the Earth 3.2 million years age.
Later, between 1992 – 1994, another milestone occured. The first pieces of the 4.4-million-year-old Ardi were uncovered in 1992 by one of Tim White’s graduate students, Gen Suwa, in the Middle Awash Valley. Older than Lucy, Ardi is the most complete skeleton of an early hominid. Scientists then spent more than 15 years digging Ardi out and analyzing the skeleton. The find reveals that our forebears underwent a previously unknown stage of evolution more than a million years before Lucy, the iconic early human ancestor specimen that walked the Earth 3.2 million years ago.
