It has already become a well known fact that the first human traces have been discover in Africa, which is considered as the birthplace of humanity at this moment. While this opinion is scientifically based, not only the people in connection to the academic communities have acknowledged this fact, but also the average human person has got a clue regarding where we all come from. `All y`all. Everybody`, as quoted from the movie of a generation, the 1991 cinematographic production `Boyz n the hood`. But a recent study has uncovered parts of early human migration in order to populate the other parts of our planet. We now invite you to discover the journey of early humans to reach Europe, as presented by a new scientific report on the matter.
According to the recent genomic analysis, it looks like the early humans have traveled through parts of the Northern Africa, more precisely the Egypt of our modern times some 60,000 years in the past. From there, they were able to migrate to Europe, Asia and what is now referred to as Eurasia. The new scientific report in connection to the problem of human migration in the early period of humanity has been published by the American Journal of Human Genetics.
The new study has resolved a long discussed problem in the field of early human history. Until now, the scientists were not sure if the early humans have left Africa through nowadays Egypt or through nowadays Ethiopia. But now, the scientific report recently published by the American Journal of Human Genetics has solved the mystery.
In addition to that, the recent genomic analysis has also uncovered the fact that the human followed a north route in order to come out of Africa, an not the route in the south. Such results are going to be of great aid to the researchers who will continue to study the problem of how the early human beings have evolved and what their journey looked like.
According to the researchers who have led the study, there were two theories surrounding the problem of human migration out of Africa:“an exit through the current Egypt and Sinai, on a route known as the Levantine corridor through the Middle East, which is the northern route, or one through Ethiopia“, which was the southern route.
However, the scientists have not yet found out whether the migration happened in a single gigantic wave or gradually.
