London Trackway – Track #79

 

This cast shows a heavy disturbance in the heel section that occurred when the top layer of substrate possibly adhered to the bottom of the foot that made this impression.  Many of the London Tracks have this feature.  Despite the irregularity, the heel has nice contours and a very natural shape.  The ball impressed more deeply than the heel, with the lateral edge being the deepest.

This cast clearly shows three toes, digits one through three.  Hints of the fourth digit are evident, but no sign whatsoever of the fifth digit can be seen.  The striations on the distal edge of the digits are going in slightly different directions, which seems to be an indication of independent toe movement.  This independence is not drastic by any means, but seems possible only if the toes move separately from one another.
