Buried deep below a sandy beach and pressed into soft clay, footprints from an ancient time hold clues to life for some of North America's early humans.

At least 29 footprints have been identified on Calvert Island in British Columbia and confirmed as the earliest known of their kind on the continent.

Researchers at the University of Victoria's Hakai Institute published their findings in the journal PLOS One on Wednesday, corroborating earlier indications of the age of the prints at about 13,000 years old.

Lead author Duncan McLaren first reported 12 single footprints in 2015.

The footprints come in at least three shapes and sizes, including at least one child and two adults. They appear to have been left by bare feet that had gathered around a focal point, likely a firepit or hearth, rather than following a path.

Thanks Mrs.B. interesting post. It looks like a family group. 

Interesting note, Thanks!  it makes geographical sense that BC would be an immigration locus.

BC has had many discoveries, & the coastal areas get a lot of attention
