ABSTRACT
The article deals with the discovery by scientists of human footprints that are more than a million years old in Kenya. The prints were noted to have rounded heels and big toes that point forward, like modern people. The prints were discovered by U.S. scientist John Harris and his team, who also found tracks of animals such as lions.
