Crete: Uppsala University - "Fossil footprints challenge established theories of human evolution." ScienceDaily



Uppsala University. "Fossil footprints challenge established theories of human evolution." ScienceDaily. ScienceDaily, 31 August 2017 -  www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2017/08/170831134221.htm

"Newly discovered human-like footprints from Crete may put the established narrative of early human evolution to the test. The footprints are approximately 5.7 million years old and were made at a time when previous research puts our ancestors in Africa -- with ape-like feet".

'This discovery challenges the established narrative of early human evolution head-on and is likely to generate a lot of debate. Whether the human origins research community will accept fossil footprints as conclusive evidence of the presence of hominins in the Miocene of Crete remains to be seen,' says Per Ahlberg.
