Once Homo sapiens began to migrate out of Africa approximately 100,000 years ago, they spread out across nearly every type of natural environment and eventually populated every habitable area of the world. This segment traces the peopling of the Pacific and the Americas, using a combination of scientific, linguistic, and oral clues. (more...)

VIDEO SEGMENT: Linguistic Clues: Bantu Expansion in Sub-Saharan Africa
The study of language can offer important clues about the historic migration of peoples around the world. Some distinctive linguistic features, such as click sounds, can reveal patterns of movement if they are found in geographically distant populations. Also, similar words in different languages can demonstrate common origins. (more...)
