How Man Migrated And Colonized World Gets Updated

September 23, 2011

At the start of nearly every world history book there are several pages dedicated to the theories of how man migrated from ‘a starting point’, and then expanded over time to other regions of the globe.

Now there is a bold new theory that is sure to generate much discussion.

With everything that is going on in the world today, this story leapt off the newspaper page and caught my attention.

The study suggests a first wave of Africans traveled to Australia between 62,000 and 75,000 years ago and gave rise to the Aborigines, while a second dispersal—one that ultimately went northward and another eastward—some 25,000 to 38,000 years ago led to modern Europeans and Asians. Based on these findings, aboriginal Australians would represent one of the oldest continuous populations outside Africa.

Another conclusion: These early human explorers were surprisingly intrepid and capable as they moved from Africa, likely along the southern coast of what is now southeast Asia and, ultimately, to Australia.
