Interesting article, Grimnal. Perhaps this project will shine some light on the many theories which prevail on the migrations of Early man.

Here's a snippet from yourLINK

"Each drop of blood is essentially a historical document," Wells said. "Our DNA tells the story of the journey of our species."

New DNA studies suggest that all humans descended from a single African ancestor who lived some 60,000 years ago. To uncover the paths that lead from him to every living human, the National Geographic Society launched the Genographic Project, headed by Spencer Wells. The quest for "Adam" is the subject of a new television documentary that airs on the National Geographic Channel in the U.S. this Sunday.

The project is a five-year endeavor undertaken as a partnership between IBM and National Geographic. It will combine population genetics and molecular biology to trace the migration of humans from the time we first left Africa, 50,000 to 60,000 years ago, to the places where we live today.
