      800-year-old footprint unearthed in Canada

      Xinhua News Agency [China], 2008-07-23
      A footprint of 800 years old has been unearthed at one of Canada's top
      archaeological sites in the western Manitoba Province, scientists
      announced Tuesday. The footprint was discovered when archaeologists dug
      at the site located in the central area of provincial capital Winnipeg.
      The area has a rich history that includes aboriginal camping, the fur
      trade, the construction of the railway, waves of immigration and the
      Industrial Age. The place has been determined as the future site of the
      Canadian Museum for Human Rights and archaeologists have been scraping
      away at the site for the basement of the building. Thousands of
      artifacts have been uncovered, including pottery and arrowheads, chief
      archaeologist Sid Kroeker said. The footprint, found about two meters
      below the surface, was probably left in the mud around 1200 A.D.. Pieces
      of pottery and fish remains were found underneath it, he said.
