Archaeologists find 5,000-year-old human footprints


The two sets of human footprints and the fishing fences were uncovered on the island of Lolland, ScienceDaily reported. "This is really quite extraordinary finding footprints from humans," said Terje Stafseth, an archaeologist with the Museum Lolland-Falster who helped excavate the ancient prints.

According to Lars Ewald Jensen from the Museum Lolland-Falster the dried up inlets along with other areas of Lolland were not always dry since the fjords used to be the backdrop for Stone Age people's daily water activities, including fishing and offering sacrifices to the sea. He added that the Stone Age footprints were probably formed sometime between 5000 BC and 2000 BC.
