First People in Europe – level 1

04-05-2023 15:00

People find something amazing in Britain. They find very old human footprints. The footprints are very special. They are the oldest footprints in Europe. Older footprints are only in Africa.

Scientists take pictures of the footprints. They use the pictures to make a model. There’s a conference in London. The pictures and the model are shown there. Most of the footprints are children’s.

This is a great discovery. It gives us new information. We will understand history better.

Difficult words: amazing (rare and special), footprint (picture of a human foot in the ground), scientist (clever person who is an expert in something), model (small object that shows what something looks like), discovery (something which is found).

You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.

What new information do scientists hope to gain from the study of these ancient human footprints?
