Migration Mania

Also from Discovery Channel, news that our early-modern ancestors seem to have left Africa far earlier than was previously thought:

The first modern humans to leave East Africa and populate Asia may have not traveled through the Middle East, as the traditional model suggests, but along a southern coastal route, a pair of new genetic studies conclude.

At least as amazing, to me anyway, is the strong evidence for groups of people living in the same places in Asia for more than 50,000 years. And you thought your family's roots went deep.
