London Trackway – Track #52

 

Track number 52 offers clear impressions of all five toes, which is fairly rare among the London Tracks.  The drag-out marks on the distal edge of the toes is very smooth, yet the underside of the toes themselves is quite rough.  The striations are angled towards the medial edge of the foot, possibly indicating a leg-lift towards the centerline of travel when the foot was removed from the substrate.

The foot pad is naturally-shaped.  The anterior medial heel pad is the shallowest part of the impression, with the lateral side of the heel registering as deeply as the the ball.  If one looks closely, a snail shell can be seen in the cast near the medial ball.
