A Dream Find: These Footprints Change History As We Know It



Thousands of people visit the White Sands National Park in southern New Mexico and leave their traces behind in the endless chalk-colored dunes. Some of those traces, although they look crispy clear, and new, are slightly older than others. Between 21,000 and 23,000 years old, to be precise. Scientists found around 60 fossilized footprints in layers of gypsum soil. They could answer the question of when the first people actually settled in North America. #brightside Credit: Gorham's Cave Complex: Visit Gibraltar – https://flic.kr/p/2ix1WuD, CC BY 2.0 https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/2.0/, https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Gorham%27s_Cave_Complex.jpg Reconstruction: Bacon Cph, CC BY 2.5 https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/2.5/, https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Reconstruction_of_Neanderthal_woman.jpg Rekonstruktionsversuch eines Neandertalers: State Office for Heritage Management and Archaeology Saxony-Anhalt / State Museum of Prehistory Halle, CC BY 3.0, https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/3.0/, https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Rekonstruktionsversuch_eines_Neandertalers.jpg Homo neanderthalensis: Matteo De Stefano/MUSE, CC BY-SA 3.0 https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/3.0/, https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Homo_neanderthalensis_-_reconstruction_-_MUSE.jpg CC BY-SA 4.0, https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/4.0/: Ground sloth: Jaaproosart, https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Ground_sloth_sculpture_made_by_Jaap_Roos_art.jpg Homo sapiens neanderthalensis: Neanderthal-Museum, Mettmann, https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Homo_sapiens_neanderthalensis-Mr._N.jpg Homo neanderthalensis: Jakub Hałun, https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Homo_neanderthalensis,_The_Natural_History_Museum_Vienna,_20210730_1223_1272.jpg Animation is created by Bright Side. —————————————————————————————- Music by Epidemic Sound https://www.epidemicsound.com Check our Bright Side podcast on Spotify and leave a positive review! https://open.spotify.com/show/0hUkPxD34jRLrMrJux4VxV Subscribe to Bright Side: https://goo.gl/rQTJZz —————————————————————————————- Our Social Media: Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/brightside Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/brightside.official TikTok: https://www.tiktok.com/@brightside.official?lang=en Stock materials (photos, footages and other): https://www.depositphotos.com https://www.shutterstock.com https://www.eastnews.ru —————————————————————————————- For more videos and articles visit: http://www.brightside.me
