Subject: Re: [AAT] Trachilos footprints ~6 Ma
This dating study establishes the age of the rocks at Trachilos Beach to be Miocene. They mention that the rocks are shallow marine. They also report that there are no beach deposits at Trachilos Beach until sometime in the Pleistocene. If they had mentioned that mammal footprints in shallow marine sedimentary rocks are otherwise unknown in paleontology, their paper would not have been accepted in Nature.
