Over the years we have seen different times proposed for the migration of humans from Africa and, of course, there have been waves of migration. However, one period is more recent than previously thought.
This estimation suggests that only sixty thousand years ago a small number of people took part in migration from Africa and that the descendants of these people populated the world.
Nowadays, DNA testing can be used to look at migration routes and common ancestry.
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.
