How can ancient human footprints have been fossilized in mud?

How can pre history hominin or humanoid footprints have been fossilised in material and still survive to this day?

Even though the total population of pre history humans would not be comparable to modern numbers it is amazing how many groups of fossilized footprints were made and survived until today.

Are very old preserved footprints due to natural catastrophes?

Nine miles from the volcano the Maasai call the “Mountain of God,” researchers have cataloged a spectacularly rare find: an enormous set of well-preserved human footprints left in the mud between 5,000 and 19,000 years ago.

The more than 400 footprints cover an area slightly larger than a tennis court, crisscrossing the dark gray mudflat of Engare Sero, on the southern shore of Tanzania’s Lake Natron. No other site in Africa has as many ancient Homo sapiens footprints—making it a treasure trove for scientists trying to tell the story of humankind’s earliest days.

Could these human tracks have been made and preserved much more recent than suggested? Or much older?

If dating techniques including fossil dating are not reliable in a solar system, galaxy and universe that seems to be full of catastrophe and electromagnetic events?

Australia’s Willandra Lakes site, for instance, has 700 fossil footprints made about 20,000 years ago. And two sites on the South African coast have Homo sapiens tracks dated as far back as 120,000 years ago.

Laetoli - a site in Tanzania some 60 miles southwest of Engare Sero - even has 3.6-million-year-old footprints possibly made by the human ancestor Australopithecus afarensis

Footprint of catastrophe?

preserved human tracks fossilized
Are most of the preserved footprints the result of natural catastrophe events such as volcanic eruptions and the volcanic ash (volcanic tuff)?

Some of the tracks seem to show people jogging through the muck, keeping upwards of a 12-minute-mile pace. Other prints imply a person with a slightly strange, possibly broken big toe.

Yet more tracks suggest that around a dozen people, mostly women and children, traveled across the mudflat together, striking toward the southwest for parts unknown. The mud tracked it all-including the dirty droplets that fell from their feet with each step.

Could some have been preserved by an event that produced high energy EM rays or some other electromagnetic energy/forces?

The combined evidence suggests that the sediments were laid down at the end of a period of reversed magnetism between 780,000 and 1 million years ago.

The exact date of the sediments that contained the footprints has not yet been determined. Magnetic signatures within the sedimentary deposits indicate they were laid down between the two most recent geomagnetic reversals – the Brunhes-Matuyama reversal around 780,000 years ago and the Jaramillo reversal around 950,000 to 1 million years ago.

The discovery of the oldest British footprints was a massive surprise due to their age of origin being before anyone had considered humanoids being in Britain.

Even the area where the Willandra Lakes footprints are found is the Mungo Man and Mungo Lady area, where there was found variations of Aboriginals and also the geomagnetic reversal of Lake Mungo.
