A collection of more than 400 fossilised footprints discovered in Tanzania suggest sex-based division of labour may have existed in human communities around 19,000 years ago, according to researchers.
The large set of well-preserved foot impressions were uncovered in Engare Sero, which lies just south of Lake Natron in northern Tanzania.
The footprints are thought to have been left in the mud between 5,700 and 19,100 years ago, during the Late Pleistocene period.
The study, published in the journal Scientific Reports, was led by Kevin Hatala, a paleoanthropologist at Chatham University in Pittsburgh, US.
Prof Hatala and his team say their findings provide a “tantalising snapshot” of humankind’s earliest days.
