Liste des groupes ethniques d'Afrique — Wikipédia

Liste des groupes ethniques d'Afrique - Wikipédia

Cet article propose une liste des groupes ethniques d'Afrique, non exhaustive (on peut en dénombrer près de 2 000 sur le continent africain et à Madagascar) et en cours d'élaboration. Comme il s'agit de sociétés vivantes, ces distinctions et divisions sont toujours discutées et en évolution, il n'en existe donc pas de représentation unique.

What our 'virtual ancestor’ looked like before an evolutionary split 700,000 years ago

What our 'virtual ancestor’ looked like before an evolutionary split 700,000 years ago | cultural anthropology | Scoop.it
Scientists may have just cracked a 700,000-year-old prehistoric mystery – what our ancestors looked like before early humanity split into the two different lineages that would become the Neanderthals and modern humans.

Until now, scholars had thought that the split that eventually led to the development of Homo sapiens (modern humans) and Homo neanderthalensis (Neanderthal) had taken place in Africa or Asia some 400,000 years ago.
