Really Old Footprints found in England

On the coast near Happisburgh, some foot prints perhaps 800,000 years old have been found.

The earliest human footprints outside of Africa have been uncovered, on the English coast, by a team of scientists. Their discovery offers researchers an insight into the migration of pre-historic people hundreds of thousands of years ago when Britain was linked by land to continental Europe.

Happisburgh is pronounced hays' bur  or something. Reminds me of when I live outside Boston in Worcester or something. It is pronounced Wooster or something as I recall but spell Worsterchestrshirsauce.

So I think Happisburgh should be pronounced Happy Town of Burgers.
