Abstract

Rchaeology is unique among the social sciences and humanities because of its ability to examine periods hundreds and thousands of years ago. Consequently, archaeology has the potential to investigate the earliest diasporas out of Africa assuming that sites associated With these migrations and resettlement can be rediscovered. As the cradle of humanity, Africa witnessed its first migration of early hominids from Africa to Eurasia approximately 1.8 million years ago, a phenomenon termed Outof-Africa 1. Around 100,000 years ago, the earliest anatomically modern humans are found beyond Africa in Europe and Asia and later colonizing Australasia and the Americas, a process known as Out-of-Africa 2.1 while these migrations are important to understanding cultural developments associated with human biological evolution, they are best described as Great Diasporas of all humankind, not African diasporas.2.
