In our last session of the Human Journey, we looked at how Homo sapiens continued to spread across the globe, reaching as far as East Asia, Australia and the Americas.

In East Asia and Australia, we looked at sites such as Niah Cave and Lake Mungo.

Whilst in the Americas we discussed the evidence for the pre-Clovis and Clovis people. Those interested in finding out more about the latter, may wish to listen to the episode on Clovis Points from the BBC’s History of the World in 100 Objects series.

This short video clip from National Geographic looks at the skeleton of a teenage girl determined to be the one of the oldest and most complete human skeletons ever discovered in the New World.
