Ancient footprints tell tale of war

Published on May 22nd, 2009 | by Admin


Newly discovered footprints of men, women and children, on an ancient military route in China, tell the tale of a battle scene that occurred 2,000 years ago.

“We also found an arrowhead close to the footprints,” he said. “Judging from its location, we assumed whoever left the footprints had been its targets.”

Zhang therefore restored a chaotic scene, with men trying to fight back enemies and women running after panic-stricken children. “There was no blacktop road back then, and the footprints they left on the muddy route remained intact even today.”

Near the footprints, unearthed in Huashugou Village of Fuxian County on the outskirts of Yan’an City, Zhang and his colleagues also found primitive buildings, which they believed were barracks or military service stations.
