The ancient human hand and foot impressions Chinese scientists discovered in the Tibet autonomous region in 1998 have been listed among the Top 10 New Archaeological Discoveries of the World in 2021 by Archaelogy, a publication by the Archaeological Institute of America.

Research shows that these ancient human relics could be 160,000 and 200,000 years old. That means they could be the earliest human relics to be found anywhere in the world.
