Archaeologists discovered human footprints, which should be up to 25 000 years old in the north of Mexico. Those altogether five traces of four adults and a child are to make explanation possible about the first inhabitants of the American continent.
However still laboratory tests would stand on, in order to determine the age with larger exactness, communicated national institut for anthropology and history (Inah).
The castings were found in bed one only in the rain time of water-leading brook in the proximity of the locality Creel in the Federal State Chihuahua. The scientists assume that they are due to members of an old trunk, that lived in close caves of the Tarahumara mountains.

Could be referring to a "Branch" of the human family tree. Interesting article OP.

I'll take a wait and see approach.

"While no other footprints were found, experts found nearby the remains of primitive camps dating from the Pleistocene Era (1.8 million to 10,000 years ago), the statement read."A 10,000 year old campsite."
And this:
timelines.ws...
"38,000BC In 2003 British scientists found 40,000-year-old human footprints in central Mexico, shattering theories that mankind arrived in the Americas tens of thousands of years later from Asia. The footprints were found in an abandoned quarry close to the Cerro Toluquilla volcano and were subsequently studied and dated by a multinational team of scientists."

I think it's interesting how we are suddenly finding out that man has been around for a long, long time.
However, I do wonder why these were preserved? Did something cataclysmic happen before a thunderstorm, or snow storm, erased them from time? Or what about that comet struck the area of the Mexican Yucatan Peninsula around 65.3Mil BC.
timelines.ws...
"65.3Mil BC About this time a comet struck the area of the Mexican Yucatan Peninsula and created a crater, known today as Chicxulub, about 150-180 miles (200 km) in diameter. The area at this time was covered by ocean. The asteroid was initially believed to have been 6-12 miles (10 km) in diameter. It left a thin layer of iridium in rock strata around the world. Evidence for this was gathered by Luis Alvarez. The asteroid wiped out the dinosaurs, about 80% of the world’s plants species and all animals bigger than a cat. In 2002 it also was estimated to have wiped out 55-60% of the plant-eating insects. A high oxygen level may have contributed to a worldwide firestorm. In 1997 Walter Alvarez published "T. Rex and the Crater of Doom," an account of this critical event. The impact was estimated at 5 billion times greater than the atomic bombs of WW II. In 2007 US and Czech researchers used computer simulations to calculate that there was a 90 percent probability that the collision of two asteroids in 160 Mil BC was the event that precipitated the Chicxulub disaster. In 2008 new research using an osmium isotope indicated that the responsible asteroid was about 2.5 miles wide."
I'm not saying that these foot prints are 65 Million years old, I wasn't around back then.

That's very interesting, I found a little more info,

The experts made a study of terrain extending 50 kilometers (31 miles) around the place and found "an area with traces of primitive campsites."

That has led the experts to believe that humans were present in the area from times as remote as the Pleistocene Epoch - 12,000 years ago.

The anthropologists also found five caves nearby with traces of human presence, three of them with several layers of cave paintings from three different periods: preceramic, pre-Hispanic and colonial.

Also found in the caves were soot from bonfires and holes carved into the rocks to be used as mortars for grinding food.

At the cave entrances specialists also detected a series of holes 25 centimeters (almost 10 inches) in diameter by 1.3 meters (4 1/4 feet) deep "that could have been used for storing food, as well as some smaller ones perhaps used to stick wooden posts into," the note said.

Is there any mention of what team is doing this research?

I have an friend that is a proffesor of geology at athe local university,and he was asked to help with a dig in central Nevada. The archeologists are working a site near a dry lakebed. They have found campsites and tools and middens containing waterfowl bones and other animals found near lakes. They called my friend because thier dating indicates am age in excess of 16k years old. My friends specialty is alluvial soils, and he and his colleagues work has shown that the initial dating is likely correct, and that the last time this lake held water year around was at least 16k years ago. After the lake dried up the signs of habitation also cease. The place is currently so arid that the local native Americans have never made any permament habitations.
He also said that there are other sites in the area that have preliminary datings of up to 20k years old.

Hi Hans, its Mexico's National Anthropology and History Institute.
Fascinating stuff indeed.

(I will play the part of the religious nut)

Human footprints 25,000 years ago!!! Thats Impossible as we all know the earth was created in 7 days about 10,000 years ago

Those Mexicans must be high again with all their drugs. I expect another flood soon to wipe out their corrupt and sinful ways.

It was Adam or Eve.

OR

It's simply a test of faith by God

OR

it's open to interpretation

OR

Thy books be damned and man really DID walk the earth many thousands of years ago, but OH NOES! That would totally undermine the grasp on society by spiritual followings across the globe.

Control.
Must......maintain.........control....

Is it possible to know at what period Adam lived?

"About the period which you assign to him, that is to say, about 4000 years before Christ."

The man of whom, under the name of Adam, tradition has preserved the memory, was one of those who, in some one of the countries of the globe, survived one of the great cataclysms which at various epochs have changed its surface, and who became the founder of one of the races that people the earth at the present day. The laws of nature render it impossible that the amount of progress which we know to have been accomplished by the human race of our planet long before the time of Christ could have been accomplished so rapidly as must have been the case if it had only been in existence upon the globe since the period assigned as the date of Adam. The opinion most consonant with reason is that which regards the story of Adam as a myth, or as an allegory personifying the earliest ages of the world Diversity of Human Races.
