Footprints Of A Family Are The Oldest Found In North America

Scientists say human footprints discovered on the Canadian coast are the oldest ever found in North America.

A study published yesterday says footprints found on an island in British Columbia are 13,000-years-old. The footprints were discovered on the beach of a remote island north of Vancouver.  There were 29 discovered.

Scientists say they were left in clay by two barefoot adults and a child walking along the shoreline, and are remarkably well-preserved.  An anthropologist at the University of Victoria says the footprints are evidence that people were inhabiting the region at the end of the last ice age.  That’s because the ice ended at the shoreline.
