    For example, "these people were very active in this area, and we wouldn't have guessed that," he said.

    The footprints also held puzzles, such as the tracks of what experts say was a one-legged man.

    "All we could pick up was the right foot," Webb said, adding that each step left a very deep impression in the mud.

    "It's a very good impression," he said. "It's one of the best foot impressions there is on the whole site. But there is no sign of the left foot at all."

    The conundrum was solved with the help of five trackers from the Pintubi people of central Australia.

    "They looked at the … track and said, Yes, it's definitely a one-legged man," Webb said.

    "Now, these people are able to tell you whether a woman's got a baby on her hip when she's walking along and whether she moves that baby from the right hip to the left hip."

    "So they see nuances of tracks in a way we have no skill in doing whatsoever."

    Well... this is a 2006 article, and not a 2016 article. A slight typo is the main cause...
