Discovery of 3.4-million-year-old partial foot in Ethiopia : Video

An international team of Ethiopian and American scientists conducting paleontological field research in the Woranso-Mille area of the Afar region of Ethiopia has announced the discovery of a 3.4 million-year-old partial foot. The new specimen did not belong to a member of “Lucy’s” species, Australopithecus afarensis, the famous and most-researched early human ancestor. The partial foot was found in an area locally known as Burtele, located in the Mille District of Zone 1 of the Afar Regional State.
