Evidence indicates that we all descended from a small population that arose in Africa about 200,000 years ago. Since then, that small population spread throughout the globe, interbreeding with other human-like species, picking up some of their DNA and eventually replacing all close evolutionary cousins – leaving only one human species.

In the last half-decade there has been a flood of new information from ancient DNA, fossils, archaeology and population studies.
