A team of researchers from Hakai Institute and the University of Victoria Canada has discovered 13000 years old human footprints. The scientists have found these footprints in Calvert Island in British Columbia. This has strengthened the findings of the previous research. The previous research had suggested that during the last Ice Age, the human beings had moved from Asia to North America. Here, it is also important to mention that the Ice Age had ended about 11700 years ago. They had settled at the west coast of British Columbia and also along the Southern Coastal regions.

The scientists have researched the shoreline of the Pacific Coastline. Nowadays, there are dense forests along this coastline. Thus, it is a lot difficult to do the research. One good thing is that the sea level in this area was two to three meters lower than it is today. The researchers have excavated intertidal beach sediments. They have found 29 footprints of different sizes in these sediments. They are also of the view that more excavation along the shoreline may help to discover more footprints. The researchers are also hoping to find the pattern of settlement of the inhabitants.

At first, they had found three footprints. A deep study of those three footprints suggests that these all were barefooted. These are the footprints of two adults and a child. The radiocarbon dating suggests that these are about 13000 years old. The findings also suggest that human beings lived in this area about 13000 years ago. This has strengthened the belief of the scientists that human beings moved from Asia to North America at the end of the Ice Age.

The lead researcher Duncan McLaren says that this research details the discovery of footprints on the west coast of Canada. The radiocarbon dates of these footprints are 13000 years old.
