Description

During pre-history humans colonized every landmass other than Antarctica. Archaeological and genetic evidence shows multiple expansions of hominids out of Africa over the last two million years, with humans spreading across the globe in the final migration lasting more than 100,000 years. This dispersion is the foundation of modern physical and cultural variation and is a significant process in studies of human evolution. In this unit the evidences for and consequences of out-of-Africa dispersals are examined.
