Footprints

Speaking of treading lightly, this is pretty interesting.

A team of scientists led by the British Museum have discovered a series of footprints left by early humans in estuary muds over 800,000 years ago. This image shows the range of footprint hollows found in the sediment on the beach at Happisburgh, Norfolk

About Uisce úr

Though I am old with wandering Through hollow lands and hilly lands, I will find out where she has gone, And kiss her lips and take her hands; And walk among long dappled grass, And pluck till time and times are done, The silver apples of the moon, The golden apples of the sun.
