'Oldest footprints in Europe' discovered

Recommended Posts

Still Waters

Some of the oldest footprints ever seen outside Africa have been discovered on the north Norfolk coast.

The five footprints seen on Happisburgh beach are thought to be 850,000 to 950,000 years old, and would have been made by Homo Antecessor - a human species that predates our own - Homo Sapiens.

Paul Macro, from Sprowston, discovered the prints at the end of May while scanning and photographing the coast as part of an assignment for London-based studio ScanLAB Projects.

How many times have any of us walked right past something like this and didn't even notice I wonder?
