It’s the path that ancient humans walked, the marks they have made on the ancient earth. Scientists discovered over 400 human footprints – each one remarkably well-preserved – in Engare Sero, Tanzania back in 2010 and these footprints led to valuable knowledge of their lives millennia ago.
A beachgoer got the surprise of a lifetime after stumbling upon 130-million-year-old dinosaur footprints in Cable Beach, West Australia.

Unusual fossil tracks found in northern China have baffled scientists for years because they suggest that these very large four-legged dinosaurs called Sauropods might have been able to walk on two feet. The debate has raged on for years in scientific circles but now it seems to be settled.
Researchers have learned a little more about how fast tyrannosaurs were, after examining dinosaur tracks preserved at Wyoming's Glenrock Paleon Museum. Experts estimate these large carnivores were able to keep up with their competition and out-run herbivorous prey.
Dinosaurs had a banner year in 2015. Several new species were unearthed, each revealing some interesting characteristics of these fascinating prehistoric creatures.
Giant dinosaur footprints have surfaced along the Isle of Skye, suggesting long-necked sauropods once stomped across prehistoric Scotland.
Archaeologists in Denmark have discovered two pairs of 5,000-year-old human footprints, the first of their kind to be unearthed in the region, helping to shed light on coastal peoples from the Stone Age, according to new research.
