Everyone Is African

The story of humankind began in Africa six million years ago. Through fossil records of the continent, anthropologists have been able to draw a family tree of human relatives. Of these, our species (called Homo sapiens), was the last to survive. The modern human is a global species in that we inhabit every continent.  Before we Homo sapiens first began to leave Africa some 175,000 years ago, we flourished as a species by demostrating our first evidence of modern behavior.

Excavations of the Blombos Caves near the southern tip of Africa have produced some of the earliest examples of thought and innovation, including engraved stones, bone tools, jewelry, projectile points and painting. By 40,000 years ago, our species had already migrated as far as northern Europe, eastern Asia and even crossed the seas all the way to Australia. Taking all our ideas, knowledge and skills with us.
