Vestigia Prisca in Litore Inventa

Vestigia pedium hominum priscorum inventa sunt in litore Norfolkense. Abhinc octingenti milia annorum homines secundum litus ambulantes quinquaginta vestigia pedibus nudis in lutum posuerunt. Aestu marino accesso harenae mox vestigia texerunt, quae per milia annorum durescentia lapidibus fossilibusve commuta sint. Tandem anno MMXIII aestus saxa diripuit ut vestigia non iam laterent. Infeliciter, aestus nunc vestigia ipsa deripuit, sed photographata multa philosophi egerunt quibus studere possint. Iam creverunt quinque homines fuisse, similes staturā hominibus hodiernis. Plura vestigia invenire sperunt. .

Footprints of ancient humans have been found on the shore in Norfolk. Eight hundred thousand years ago people walking along the shore in bare feet left fifty prints in the mud. When the tide came in sands soon covered the prints, which hardened over thousands of years and were transformed into rock, or fossils. Finally in 2013 the tide tore away the rocks so that the footprints were no longer hidden. Unfortunately, the tide has now torn away the prints themselves, but scientists took many photos which they can study. They have already noticed that there were five persons, similar in size to modern people. They hope to find more prints.
