No understanding of sasquatches can be complete without some knowledge of paleoanthropology. After all, sasquatches had to come from somewhere, and paleoanthropology is the science that shows us what sorts of cousins we had that came before us. Bigfoots would be descended from one of those cousins. It is with that in mind that I eagerly devour pertinent articles on human ancestors in hopes to shed light on bigfoots and where they came from.
One of the leading figures in paleoanthropology was Mary Leakey, wife of Louis Leakey, was the discoverer of many hominin fossils in eastern Africa. She was meticulous, innovative, and dedicated.
The following is a beautifully animated short briefly describing part of Mary Leakey’s life, particularly her discovery of the Laetoli Footprints. Enjoy!
