Jon Wyatt Photography - Neolithic footprints, Kenfig Sands, South Wales
Kenfig Sands, South Wales. In 2007 five groups of extremely rare 5000 year old human footprints were discovered impressed on a peat shelf on the beach. Storms revealed the peat layer compressed almost to rock under the weight of sand. Experts believe that something cataclysmic must have occurred soon after they were made to have preserved them so well. Not long after their discovery the sea's erosion removed all traces of the footprints.
