Searching for Our Ancient Ancestors
Don Johanson spoke at Drury on February 21
When Don Johanson unearthed the fossils of a 3.18-million-year-old human in 1974, he knew his discovery would change the world. Even before the skeleton was named Lucy, it had forced scientists to rethink how humans have evolved. Since that day, Johanson has continued to make major discoveries as he searches for evidence of how ancient people lived. He is now the director of the Institute of Human Origins at Arizona State University.
