It would be very interesting to talk with some of our ancient ancestor, who lived thousands of years ago. In order that though as-that to imagine such a scenario, scientists have tried to reconstruct the face of our ancient ancestor. So, on the basis of the found the jaws, teeth and bits of bones, paleontologists have recreated the face hominin who lived a few million years ago.
Looked like the first people?
The remains of the mysterious creature were found in Ethiopia in 2016 and most likely belonged to a male creature of the species Australopithecus anamensis, which is considered the oldest human ancestor. The researchers were able to determine what species belonged to the skull, comparing it with previously discovered teeth, jaws and other body fragments found being. Discovered the remains of a skull was a strange combination of primitive and advanced traits during the reconstruction showed the presence of at found hominina rough brown skin, a large flat nose and protruding eyebrows and cheekbones. According to the reconstruction, A. anamensis could inhabit our planet about 4 million years ago.
Whence came man?
Discovery of body parts A. anamensis fills an important gap in the history of the origin of man. A. anamensis is the oldest known species of the genus Australopithecus, which is considered the earliest member of the evolutionary tree of man. Has long been accepted that A. anamensis directly evolved into another subspecies called A. afarensis. The most famous representative of A. afarensis was Lucy the Australopithecus female, found during the French-American expedition in Ethiopia.

Fragments of the body of Lucy remained at 40 %, which in itself is considered to be rare in anthropology. Despite very low growth rates and weight, as well as small brain size, the pelvis of Lucy is fully consistent with a human that shows her standing erect.
And you know, looked like the teeth of our ancestors?
