Oldest Footprints on Earth Found in USA!

Posted in Prehistoric America tagged , , , , at 2:03 am by Kendal

NEVADA, USA.  As we find many footprints being left in vegas today it was never thought that we would discover the oldest foot prints on earth. Read News Article Below.

“The oldest-known tracks of a creature apparently using legs have been discovered in rock dated to 570 million years ago in what was once a shallow sea in Nevada.

Scientists think land beasts evolved from ancient creatures that left the sea and evolved lungs and legs. If the new finding is real – the discoverer says will fuel skepticism – it pushes the advent of walking back 30 million years earlier than any previous solid finding.

The aquatic creature left its “footprints” as two parallel rows of small dots, each about 2 millimeters in diameter. Scientists said today that the animal must have stepped lightly onto the soft marine sediment, because its legs only pressed shallow pinpoints into that long-ago sea bed.”

To find pre-colonial america and to to find pre-historic america, you usually do not have to look far as the details are in every state of the union.  There are some very old history hidden in caves and the writings/artifacts tell us a story long before we could imagine.  

10,000 years of history from 6500 BC to 1650 AD is to be told at this cave.  

Every year there is a Native American Festival in this area and also Park Rangers give demonstrations of pre-historic tools. 

With history like this, it gives a entire different meaning to the term; Old South.

Dinosaurs run through Utah

The Quarry Visitor Center at Dinosaur National Monument, Utah

Millions of years ago, where Utah is now, dinosaurs ran through what now is Utah.  The only thing that remains of these creatures now are fossils so it is safe to come into close contact, as you can with the skeletons.  Wow, when I first discovered this was in Utah, I was truly amazed to find people now live in the state where all those dinosaurs once was.

I think the website is worth a visit and there are many of dinosaur culture centers in the USA. This is history in its most primitive form dating back millions of years. We will be posting many more of these as America’s Castle continues, history documented millions of years be the enclosure of rocks and mud pits. There is many complete skeleton’s on display in the USA. (we will search them out and make a new topic area, The Land Before Time. (Pre-historic America)

Circa, Millions of years past.
