The Oldest Footprints

The world's oldest footprints were made when three man-like creature walked across a patch of damp volcanic ash at a place called Laetoli in Tanzania, Africa, 3.75 million years ago!
Ever since the footprints were discovered by Mary D, Leakey and her team in 1976 scientists have wondered how "human" the creatures who made the tracks were because modern man is thought to have originated only about 1,00,000 years ago.
Interestingly, a recent study by an American anthropologist has shown that the footprints are similar to those made by modern humans who habitually go bare-footed.
