Footprints in the sand

On Formby beach the erosion of the sand has revealed footprints that date back to the late Neolithic era.
Whilst on a walk in 2012 with friends we were lucky enough to meet a group of archaeologists standing round a black patch on the sand which had clear small footprints sunk into it. We were looking at the marks left by a child running across the mud 7000 years ago.

Three years later an edition of twelve books remembering the day


  1. I love the story behind the book! What a thing to witness...

  2. I've been back to the beach several times since but never managed to find anything like them again . I think we were privileged that day


I really appreciate hearing from you. Thank you for taking the time.
