World InfoZone - WIZ Around The World
Tuesday 30th May
African Origins Menu




It has been estimated that only sixty thousand years ago a small number of people took part in migration from Africa. The descendants of these people populated the world. DNA testing can be used to look at migration routes and common ancestry.

Since the first people left Africa there have been periods of migration. Today, a new surge in migration is taking place. At the end of the twentieth century a report by the United Nations estimated that one hundred and seventy-five million people lived outside their countries of birth.

The World InfoZone country studies were developed to study history and cultural diversity. Use the WIZ Newslink resource to study individual countries and trace our development from early man until the present day.
