Remains of Lucy in Addis National museum.
The National Museum in Addis is definitely worth a visit, not least of all because they have the remains of Lucy, who is actually called 'Dinknesh' in Ethiopia - this means 'wonderful'. She was named after Lucy in 'Lucy in the sky with diamonds'. Her remains were found in 1974 and she is believed to be 3.2 million years old.
