Human footprints in UK from 1 M years ago! But UK was not at this time an island!

"Using foot length to stature ratios, the hominins are estimated to have been between ca. 0.93 and 1.73 m in height, suggestive of a group of mixed ages. The orientation of the prints indicates movement in a southerly direction on mud-flats along the river edge."
"Recent analyses suggest a small group of perhaps five adults and children walking along the mudflats of a large river, about a million years ago"

They lived near the sea. Coastal origin of human species? An implied reference to Michael Crawford!
