In terms of the history and evolution of mankind the discovery of Lucy’s bones enabled scientists to verify pre-human origin.

It has made no difference to society but it has helped humans to better understand our origin and place in the development of life on Earth. In addition this discovery has helped us to see ourselves as part of nature rather than superior or separate.
