Science Bulletins: Did Climate Change Guide Early Migrations?
An international team of scientists has completed analysis of sediment cores pulled from several African lakes, providing the first long, continuous record of climate change in East Africa.

This Human Bulletin shows how these ancient fluxes in climate agree with genetic data on the successive migrations of early modern humans.
