Discovering Ardi DVD
Travel back in time 4.4 million years to meet Ardipithecus ramidus, a species that lived long before "Lucy" was born. In 1994, scientists in Ethiopia discovered a partial hominid skeleton they nicknamed "Ardi." It took an elite international team of experts the next fifteen years to delicately, meticulously, and methodically piece together "Ardi" and her lost world. The team's findings opened a new chapter on human evolution, revealing the early evolutionary steps our ancestors took after they diverged from a common ancestor we once shared with living chimpanzees.
