This Animated Video Shows 125,000 Years of Human Migration
DNA tests on almost 1,000 people have shown all non-Africans are related to a single population that migrated from Africa between 80,000 and 50,000 years ago.
The research, published in the journal Nature, details how geneticists took DNA samples from people of different cultures in different parts of the world. They then traced back their genetic links through the millennia. All arrived at the same conclusion.
This animated video, produced by the University of Hawaii, shows the spread of the human race across the globe over a 125,000 year period.
