Harnessing technology to open up the ancient past

If you are collecting information about your family origins, you must see The Peopling of the World to see how far back your ancestors go. 

 Peopling The World

Kudos to the Bradshaw Foundation for the presentation created by Stephen Oppenehimer that shows the world migrations of the human species based on the latest genetic research based on a synthesis of recent mitochondrial DNA and Y chromosome evidence with archaeology, climatology and fossil study.

They call it an "iLecture" ( information lecture), a fact-driven documentary film presenting the latest theories using experts from  around the world and plan a new one each month, harnessing technology to open up the ancient past.

Fine foundation work and a hat tip to Maggie's Farm.
