Researchers believe fossilized human footprints found below the shoreline of a remote island off B-C's central coast could be the oldest in North America. Archeologist Duncan McLaren says about a dozen imprints found on Calvert Island south of Bella Bella could be more than 13-thousand years old. (Researchers from the University of Victoria, Hakai (Hak-AYE') Institute and local First Nations believe the prints were made by a man, woman and child who gathered around a fire thousands of years ago.)
