Caption: Prehistoric human footprint. Plaster cast of a human footprint found preserved in 40,000-year-old volcanic ash. This is one of a large collection of prehistoric footprints (animal and human) that were discovered in 2003 in the Valsequillo Basin in Mexico. In 2005, the ash was dated to 40,000 years ago, challenging previously accepted theories about when the Americas were colonised. This cast was made in August 2003.
