According to foreign media reports, you can learn a lot about a person’s way of walking – obviously, this still applies even 10000 years ago. In New Mexico, researchers found what they claimed to be the longest known human footprint, stretching 1.5 kilometers. It is understood that the footprints were preserved on a dried up ancient lake bed in White Sands National Park, New Mexico. < / P > < p > the area is famous for the presence of thousands of ice age animals, including mammoths, giant sloths, Saber Toothed tigers, wolves, bison, camels and, of course, humans. < / P > < p > and the footprints of the last animal attracted the attention of researchers. Not only are they the longest human fossil footprints ever discovered, they are so well preserved that scientists can infer a lot of detail about the story behind them. < / P > < p > the researchers said the person who left these footprints was most likely a woman, but also an adolescent male. With a child, they left in a hurry and then turned back a few hours later, but they didn’t bring the child back. < / P > < p > the researchers used the small size of the footprint to determine who left it. Their walking speed can be estimated by the distance between the footprints – the footprint maker’s walking speed is more than 1.7 meters per second, which is much faster than the normal walking speed of 1.2-1.5 meters. The footprints extend roughly in a straight line, indicating that the person is going somewhere. < / P > < p > the footprints left by the child also appear in different parts of the route, which may be that the person holding him will stop to put it down from time to time. In terms of size, the child may not be two years old. The researchers can even see the effect when adults walk with their children in their arms – when the adult’s feet slide out and rotate under the extra weight, the footprints appear more “banana shaped.”. < / P > < p > interestingly, there is also a set of footprints in the opposite direction that seem to have been completed within hours of the first walk. They’re narrower and more consistent, which means they’re walking alone this time. So where’s the baby? Obviously, this part of the story is unable to find clues from the footprints. But anyway, the other animals seemed to have gone out that day. Two groups of animals, mammoths and sloths, were also found in the footprints. It’s amazing how detailed a story can be inferred from footprints about 10000 years ago. Although you may never know what this trip is all about, the wonderful feeling it brings is endless.
