Foot prints found in Mexico originally thought to be around 40,000 years old may be much older.

Alleged 40,000-year-old Human Footprints In Mexico Much, Much Older Than Thought

Alleged footprints of early Americans found in volcanic rock in Mexico are either extremely old - more than 1 million years older than other evidence of human presence in the Western Hemisphere - or not footprints at all, according to a new analysis published this week in Nature.

The study was conducted by geologists at the Berkeley Geochronology Center and the University of California, Berkeley, as part of an investigative team of geologists and anthropologists from the United States and Mexico.

Earlier this year, researchers in England touted these "footprints" as definitive proof that humans were in the Americas much earlier than 11,000 years ago, which is the accepted date for the arrival of humans across a northern land-bridge from Asia.

So these prints are either really old or not foot prints at all.
Because of how old they think these prints are... most likely the public will dismiss them as not being human foot prints. Hopefully scientists will be able to come to a final conclusion.
