Questions about original human migration


Recommended Posts

Is there anyone out there who has a map of the world (as it was thousands of years ago) where the various waves of human migrations are marked with arrows with the arrows also having dates? I'm talking here of course about the migrations that occured while we were still hunter-gatherers.

 

If possible it would also be very interesting if someone could tell me what the pain push and pull factors for humans were at that time.

Iirc, there's a good map in the book Guns, Germs, and Steel by Jared Diamond. The PBS website for his show may have some good maps as well.

 

Any links to any of these maps?

There's still debate about even some of the major features. Multiple exchanges with Africa, in and out rather than simply outmigration, seem to be gaining in importance, for example.

 

Well, but there must be a currently more-or-less accepted migration pattern, no?

Hi!

 

Is that you in your pic? You're gorgeous.

 

Now......on topic: Funny you should ask, as I am currently working on a project for the summer school Anthro class I teach.

 

I have thus far found this website here to be the best, hands down, as far as answering your question.

 

This is a fascinating topic, btw, and dovetails with my personal discipline of study.

 

Thanks!
