Prehistoric Footprints at Formby

15 Dec 2010

The footprints are said to date back some 5000 to 6000 years ago, see www.archnews.co.uk/world-archaeology/uk-archaeology/4216-prehistoric-human-footprints.html and it seems a lot of amateurs have been scouring through sand dunes near Formby in Lancashire after the disovery of footprints. According to marine scientists the beaches are receding and this disperses sand and sediment and uncovers underlying layers. It is not just the footprints of humans that have been found, but those of deer, cattles and birds as well.
