Earliest footprints outside of Africa discovered in England

Scientists have discovered the earliest evidence of human footprints outside of Africa, on the Norfolk Coast in England.

The footprints, which are direct evidence of the earliest known humans in northern Europe and are more than 800,000 years old, were found on the shores of Happisburgh.
