Million-year-old footprints discovered in Norfolk

These footprint hollows, shown in situ on the beach at Happisburgh, Norfolk, are the oldest human footprints known from outside Africa.

This ancient human footprint from the Laetoli site in Tanzania was made by Australopithecus afarensis approximately 3.6 million years ago. This fossil cast can be seen in the Spitzer Hall of Human Origins at the AMNH.

Australopithecus afarensis: footprints

A single footprint of Australopithecus afarensis (top), left some million years ago at Laetoli, Tanzania, shows a striking similarity to a single footprint of a habitually barefoot modern human being from Peru (bottom).

Mary Leakey was a British archaeologist and anthropologist, who discovered the first fossilized Proconsul skull, an extinct ape now believed to be ancestral to humans. For much of her career she worked together with her husband, Louis Leakey, in Olduvai Gorge, uncovering the tools and fossils of ancient hominines. She developed a system for classifying the stone tools found at Olduvai. She also discovered the Laetoli footprints.

A 300 ft (100 m) high wall found in Bolivia with over 5000 dinosaur footprints, in over 462 discreet trails. This wonderful picture is so full of geology it makes my head spin. If you zoom in on the picture (higher resolution here) you’ll see the dinosaur footprints – there’s over 400 discreet trails. a huge number; the natural question after this, of course is how did they end up sideways ?

Dinosaur and human tracks have been found together in the river bedrock of the Paluxy River near Glen Rose, Texas!

The Remarkable Dinosaur Footprint Wall  Located 3 miles (5 km) from Sucre, Bolivia is Cal Orko, an imposing limestone slab 0.9 miles (1.5 km) long and over 328 feet (100 m) high. On this steep face with an inclination of 72 degrees, visitors can look back in time to when dinosaurs roamed the Earth over 68 million years ago.

In Cal Orko, Bolivia you'll find 462 distinct dinosaur tracks from over 8 different species, totaling individual dinosaur footprints.
