LONDON (AP) They were a British family on a day out almost a million years ago.
Archaeologists announced Friday that they have discovered human footprints in England that are between 800,000 and 1 million years old the most ancient found outside Africa, and the earliest evidence of human life in northern Europe.

Yeah a family. Mom,dad,kids not mom,mom,kids or dad,dad,kids. They had it right back then.
More likely hooligans walking through their times version of wet cement!
Caveman family out for walk. Og is father, Poq is mother. They come back from hunting catch Mastadon. But Obama cave family want cut even though they sleep all day otherwise they steal Ogs cave and auction it off.
Hmmmm. Wonder what the weather was like that day. Probably steaming hot due to glow-bull............ Well, glow bull!
Another flimsy misuse of the term “Scientists.”
Wow that is amazing, I didn’t know Canon cameras was around back then.
Maybe humans started in the UK, but migrated south for the warmer weather?
Which makes me think they may not have been a "British family". Could have been a bunch of tourists from anywhere visiting there on vacation.
This is solid proof that camels were not domesticated yet, or the family would have been riding them.
Science is fun!
They must have been Japanese.
I don’t know...they don’t look a century over 700.00 years old to me.
Could be. That one footprint looks like the guy had on “flip flops”.
Those are KEDS tracks!
We used to make the same footprints in the mud back in the 60’s!
Funny thing though... I don’t think they had KEDS back, say, ohh, 800,000 years ago! These are SHOE prints if anything.
You’re correct,there is nothing about it other than its outline that has any of the characteristics of a foot print.
>> “We used to make the same footprints in the mud back in the 60s!” <<
‘Cept they didn’t make tredless ‘surfer’ keds in the ‘60s.
The moms footprint was red and Louboutin could be seen on the heel
Is that a Bruno Magli footprint?
Wandering around looking for a dentist, no doubt.
Oh now that’s as clear as mud.
BFRO Team: “That’s a squatch!”
Note that they are saying it's a MILLION years old, so in other words in a million years these prints have been completely devoid of erosion....on a beach...around sand and wind...and a boardwalk...in England, which has ice and snow....
This qualifies for the Al Gore award of hoax of the month.
I’m sure that they took special care not to disturb this important resource as they built that wharf too!
Piltdown man was here.
That's what I was thinking. Where are any indentations for the toes or heel, or were they wearing bedroom slippers?
It’s at the wharf, they were wearing their Sperry Topsiders.
Makes perfect sense.
