'Giant leap for the first man...'

'The earliest human footprints made 1.5million years ago have been discovered in Kenya.

Two sets of prints were left by Homo ergaster, an early ancestor of modern humans, in separate rock layers near Ileret in northern Kenya.

Laser scanning revealed that the creature walked the same way as people do today.'

Unrelated but was interested to see that you too enjoyed Gran Torino.
Did you get my email about my battle of the beanfield book?

Happy to've seen that you saw this one, too. The History Channel is going to have a new documentary, Sunday, 8 March '09, Ancient Aliens, featuring, among other noteworthies, Michael A Cremo, whose views dove-tail with my own & other forbidden archaeology luminaries, such as Robert Charroux, whose "100,000 Years of Man's Unknown History", though leaning more towards the ancient astronaut praxese & outlooks rather than Cremo's devolved godlike beings (essentially, we, the people), remains a highly influential tome.

Happy viewing, y'all,
