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

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.
