Discovered First Footprints of Homo Erectus

The footprints of Homo erectus recently discovered in Eritrea

A research coordinated by the University of Rome La Sapienza and the National Museum of Eritrea , led to the discovery of the first footprints of Homo erectus .

These are traces left on the sand of a lake around which, 800,000 years ago, there was a prairie.

The footprints were found in Eritrea itself, precisely in the site of Ad Aalad-Amo , and it is hoped that they will be able to provide substantial help in studying the characteristics and habits of Homo Herectus, against which knowledge, to date, is very scarce.
