What happens in caves thousands of years ago apparently stays there.
A series of footprints created about 14,000 years ago has revealed new insight into the ways ancient humans explored cave systems during the Stone Age.
Researchers say at least 180 hand and footprints are still on the clay-rich floor of Italy’s cave of Bàsura in the famous Toirano caves, showing ancient humans crawled barelegged through low tunnels as they searched for food and even explored for fun.
The group that left behind these tracks apparently included five individuals, from adults to children as young as 3 years old, who navigated the dark pathways using wooden sticks as torches.
