Footprints from Laetoli Analyzed

December 19, 2021

In 1978, a team led by Mary Leakey uncovered several trackways of animal foot prints at a site in Tanzania called Laetoli. There were bird and other animal footprints but what caught everyone's attention were prints that appeared to be human. Some trackways containing the human foot prints were 60 feet in length, some were as short as 5 feet.
