News about footprints in the sand found in Africa

There are hundreds of crossing traces fossils found in Africa. They assume that there was life in Africa about 19,000 years ago. The sea edge near a volcano of Ol Doinyo Lengai took a huge find of ancient human traces. From a volcano, researchers found a rarity in nine miles: a huge variety of well-remained human marks left in the dirt between 5,000 and 19,000 years ago. More than 400 traces cover the area that is larger than the tennis court, crossing a dark gray edge of the sea Engare Sero on the southern coast of the Lake of Tanzania Netron. No other place in Africa takes such amount of ancient traces of Homo sapiens. Detection of these traces is the real discovery for the scientists trying to recreate the history of the earliest days of Mankind.

Some traces show the running person. Based on others, it is possible to recreate an image of the person with little strange, perhaps broken, fingers of a foot. The majority of traces assume that about the dozens of people, mainly women and children traveled through the sea together. They moved to the southwest with the unknown purposes. Dirt remembered all of this. Even the small droplets, which fell from their feet with each step, remained and now are well preserved. The geologist conducting a research shares the impressions ‘The human origin is my huge interest.’ Now these tracks will be added to an incredibly exclusive catalog of the human traces, which passed a test of time. The territory of the Lakes Willandra of Australia, for example, has 700 fossilized traces made about 20,000 years ago. Two more places on the South African coast recorded traces of the Homo sapiens 120,000 years ago. Laetoli is the place in Tanzania approximately in 60 miles to the southwest from Engare Sero. Engare Sero is the unique place because of abundance and a variety of the traces offering the amazingly detailed picture of what life of our ancestors in Africa was like. ‘It is the very difficult place’ – says paleoanthropologist at the City university of New York – ‘there is one area where there is such huge number of traces that we called it ‘dance hall’ because I never saw so many traces in one place. It is the improbable fact.’
