Haplogroup M168

 

Eurasian Adam was the first appearance of M168, the common ancestors of everyone today living outside of Africa. This DNA sequence occurred 31,00 – 79,000 years in Ethiopia or Sudan.

M168 decendants were the first to survive to present day after being taken out of Africa and away from humanity’s birthplace.

Massive population growth was prevalent in The Upper Paleolithic era which supposedly led these people to find new hunting ground. Behavioral changes occurred in this time as archeological evidence has discovered improved tools and the birth of art. The root of this boosted cognitive function suggusts a time of genetic mutation.

Whatever the reason for there journey, M168 charts the trip out of Africa and into the subsequent populating of the entire planet.
