at boot level

In the winter of 2013 I set out from an ancient Homo sapiens fossil site called Herto Bouri, in the north of Ethiopia, and began retracing, on foot, the defining journey of humankind: our first colonization of the Earth during the StoneAge.¶ Mylong walk is about storytelling. I report what I see at boot level along the pathways of our original discovery of the planet.

Hi. What does “at boot level” mean?

Thank you.

    I don't agree precisely with PaulQ. The author is wearing boots and looking for fossils at ground level, i.e. at the level of his/her boots.

    Strangely, there is little or no mention of fossils which, in any case, may be halfway up a cliff, but the article, which is about migration, ends
