    Since the discovery of the oldest known human fossils found in 2004 named, "Lucy" there has been quite the controversy as whether or not it in fact was the oldest human bones to exist.

    As of now, there is a new finding of fossil that predate "Lucy" by 100,000 years or so.
    Science has now begun to rewrite the history books with this new find.
    ( https://www.nytimes.com/2017/06/07/science/human-fossils-morocco.html?_r=0 )

    In the beginning, the human species under the notion of religious context have been divided into different sectors,segments,race's & tongues.
    We all come from somewhere else & earth/gaia/tiamatu was just the beginning of humanities journey on earth.
    As we've come from different star cluster's, this place was a prison.
    When the great war was lost, half of humanity fled or were sent to this world, though to most this is science fiction, but to those who truly understand it's meaning, its a priceless void of knowledge.

    Lucy wasn't human at all (Australopithicus Afarensis) and is therefore not the "oldest known human fossil."
    Prior to this new finding (assuming it is correct,) the oldest human fossil was of Homo Habilis.

    The name has to start with "Homo" if it was human.

    There have been at least six different species of Australopithecus found (with a seventh still awaiting acceptance.) Afarensis is the one that appears to be the most closely related to humans, but none of them are human. Australopithcus is ten times older than this recent fossil find.

    Lucy was in fact a species of "hominin", there for an human ancestor.

    She was also a mammal, therefore a human relative.
    But neither hominin nor mammal was what you said:
