Homeric cosmogony

Homeric cosmogony. Map of the Earth based on the myths and knowledge of the Ancient Greeks at the time of Homer (1st or 2nd millennium BC). The map shows a flat Earth centred on Greece and the Mediterranean Sea, surrounded by a 'River Ocean'. At night, the Sun passes from west to east behind a range of high mountains in the north ('region of the night'). To the south in North Africa, is the 'region of the day'. Other mythological references include the Elysian Fields, the island of the Cyclops, and the entrance to hell. Civilisations (historical and mythological) marked here include: Ethiopians, Libyans, Pygmies, Egyptians, Amazons, Phoenicians, Hyperboreans and Cimmerians. Places include: Thebes, Sparta, Troy, Thrace, Crete and Cyprus. Artwork from Pioneers of Science (Oliver Lodge, 1893)

Fossil hominid skeleton known as Lucy Featured Related Images Print

Fossil hominid skeleton known as Lucy

Fossil hominid skeleton Australopithecus afarensis known as 'Lucy' (AL 288-1). Lucy was part of a rich find of fossils made in the Afar region of Ethiopia between 1973 and 1977. She dates from 3.3 million years ago and is widely accepted as the earliest link in the human record. The remains comprise 40% of the entire skeleton and include skull fragments, a mandible, most of the left and right arm, vertebrae, rib fragments, sacrum, left pelvic bone, left thigh and right lower leg. The form of the pelvic bones showed her to be female, erupted wisdom teeth suggested she was 20 years old and the thighbone indicated she was small, between 107 and 122 centimetres (4 feet) tall

Footprints and skeleton of Lucy

Footprints and skeleton of Lucy (Australopithecus afarensis). The fossilised bones of the A. afarensis specimen known as Lucy are superimposed over footprints made by the same species. A. afarensis was a bipedal human-like primate (hominid) that lived in Africa 3.9-3 million years ago. Lucy's skeleton was found in Ethiopia in 1974 and is thought to be 3.3 million years old. The footprints are from the Laetoli site in Tanzania, where a line of A. afarensis footprints are preserved in volvanic ash. They were discovered in 1976
