25,000-year-old human footprints found in Mexico

Published on September 30th, 2011 | by Admin


Five human footprints which may be 25,000-years-old have been found in Chihuahua, Mexico.

The footprints correspond to three adults and a child that probably lived in the caves that are located in the sierra, in the Valle de Ahuatos, eight kilometers from the town of Creel, in Chihuahua.

According to morphoscopic analysis, footprint 1, by its longitude of 26 centimeters, corresponds to the right foot of a male adult, while footprint number 2 belongs to the left foot of another adult, but it being the less defined it has been difficult to identify the sex of the person that made it. Footprint number 3 was made by an infant 3 or 4 years old and corresponds to the right foot with a longitude of 17 centimeters.
