Prehistoric human footprints found on English coast
Published on December 10th, 2010 | by Admin1
Archaeologists today dubbed the discovery ‘sensational’, claiming it is one of the most significant historic footprint finds the country has seen.
Over the last few weeks hobbyists have been scouring the sand dunes with a fine tooth comb and have struck lucky with their latest findings.
Marine scientists explained how the beaches are receding, which forces layers of sand and sediment to disperse, leaving land which has lay undisturbed for thousands of years.
They added that while the footprints often appear and disappear depending on the weather and season, the new discovery came as a shock to many people.
Government scientists looking to protect the footprints could create a marine conservation zone in the area to protect their heritage.
