Il popolamento umano del pianeta Terra. The Genetic Map

Journey of Mankind. The Peopling of the WorldWho were our ancestors? From where did we originate? If we came out of Africa, what factors governed our routes? And when? Now finally this interactive map reveals an exciting journey of opportunity and survival, confirmed by genetic science and documented by ancient rock art.

La Brad Shaw Foundation, in associazione con Stephen Oppenheimer, presenta questo interessante viaggio virtuale che ripercorre le tappe della colonizzazione del mondo da parte dell'uomo a partire da 160.000 anni fa.
The map will show for the first time the interaction of migration and climate over this period. We are the descendants of a few small groups of tropical Africans who united in the face of adversity, not only to the point of survival but to the development of a sophisticated social interaction and culture expressed through many forms. Based on a synthesis of the mtDNA and Y chromosome evidence with archaeology, climatology and fossil study, Stephen Oppenheimer has tracked the routes and timing of migration, placing it in context with ancient rock art around the world.!!
