Mexico City – National Anthropology and History Institute, or INAH, specialists have discovered five human footprints in northern Mexico's Sierra Tarahumara that could be between 4,500 and 23,000 years old, officials said. The find took place in the northern state of Chihuahua after a local resident notified the authorities about the imprints, which were probably left by some of the first humans to populate that region of northern Mexico

This article came up while surfing the web for some info on our ancestors. It has the potential to be the oldest find of human footprints in the Americas. This find could change the view on how the Americas got populated tru time.

Its strange the prints were of a 6 toes foot. but some people today have the same mutation.

just wanted to share this find to the people who are interested in this kinda stuff.

Any opinions on this find are welcome

They have found settlements in different parts of both N and S America, I believe, dating back about 30,000 years.

Edit: Strange another story on this shows a different photo?

Some other interesting history.

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

Or this one?
s8int.com...

That particular site has found remains of human habitation at about between 250,000 to 350,000 years ago


All happening in Mexico.
I guess that was the place to be back then.

Very cool, it seems we are starting to break the 5,000 year era. Here is a link for some fossilized footprints, and they are all over the place, search around, it's kinda creepy:www.genesispark.com...

This is nice to hear but I wonder just what things the find that we never hear about.
Here is s few made up . lines I think we would see if they told us about everything they find.

"50,000 year old car tire marks found"
"75,000 year old cell phone found"
"30,000 year old electric motor found"
"100,000 year old (insert modern item of your choice here) found"

If this story is true, I'd say this human footprint is a little older.

The Cretaceous Limestone block contains a human footprint overlaid with a dinosaur print. Photo by Keith Thrash. Click and drag to resize. "In early July, 2000 Alvis Delk, assisted by James Bishop (both of Stephenville, Texas), was working in the Cretaceous limestone on the McFall property at the Paluxy River near Glen Rose, Texas and discovered a pristine human footprint intruded by a dinosaur footprint. This discovery was made in the vicinity of McFall I and II Sites where the Creation Evidence Museum team has excavated since the Spring of 1982. The eleven-inch human footprint matches seven other such footprints of the same dimensions in the “Sir George Series,” named in honor of His Excellency Governor General Ratu Sir George Cacobau of Fiji.

There is no reason to believe that any of those things ever gonna be found. But as a avid sci-fi lover i recently found a new series called
Terra Nova

its a story of some people who travel 85 million years back in time tru a timerift. The whole idea seems far fetched but i know some you guys are gonna like the Jurrasic Park theme of the show.

Sorry, but pre-Clovis habitation of North America has already been established.

The Clovis culture dates to about 12,000 ybp.

Where did you get the "5,000 years" number?
