    Ancient American Migrations

    I've heard that the Inuit are descended from a much later migration than most Native Americans who lived south of Canada. Supposedly they come from a migration about 1,500 to 1000 years ago, while Clovis culture dates to about 15,500 years ago. I am curious what enabled these newcomers to push...

    America: first-human migrations and pre-Colombian (re)discoveries

    I have already seen that here in the Forum there are a huge interest about the different pre-Columbian “re-discoveries” of the American continent and of the previous human wave migrations to it. Most of them range from the historical to the speculative and to the ultra-speculative I decide to...

    Barbarian invasions or migrations?

    Hi,i think that most of you know the effects and consequences of the arrival of barbarian peoples within the borders of the Western Roman empire and then a summary on what happened will be superfluous. The question is,as the title says, which is the more appropriate term between two to describe...

    Migrations to and from disappeared lands?

    Since Europes shorelines changed dramatically as ice grew or decreased migrations to and from those lands that appeared and disappeared to and from the shallow seas should be expected to have place. But in this article about migration patterns of early palaeolitic Europe those ares are not...

    Cases of Large-Scale Voluntary Ethnic Migration During the Second Millennium

    Exactly which cases of large-scale voluntary ethnic migration have there been during the second millennium (as in, during the years 1001 to 2000)?

    Goffart's Ideas on Barbarian Migrations: Agree or Disagree?

    A notable historian is Walter Goffart who specializes in early medieval history as well as the end of the traditional Roman Empire. Interestingly he wrote how he disagrees with the notion of barbarians migrating along a path "like arrows on a map." The idea that nomadic groups followed a...

    Jewish Diaspora - migrations & growth or conversions?

    I have seen the following claim: Actually, Jewish Diaspora was very widespread already by 70 CE (and further increased until 330 CE). But whether or not Jewish communities in Europe, Africa and Asia was the result of mostly conversion of local populations to Judaism, or the result of mostly...

    How much of Africa was Khoi San Before the Bantu Migrations?

    How much of Africa was Khoi San Before the Bantu Migrations? And two related questions: How much was "Pygmy?" How do you define the other peoples that populated middle and south Africa who were neither Khoi San nor "Pygmy"?

    Pre-Colombian migrations to the Americas

    Partly inspired by the travesty that is America Unearthed, I have been reading a fair bit recently about the various claims people have made about pre-Colombian settlement in the Americas. Amidst all the nonsense about Irish priests, Welsh princes and Templar Knights, I've noticed that two...

    Where do Armenians come from?

    I find it necessary to write summary about languages because of all those currently active discussions. Also it is necessary to write a word or two about roots of peoples and tribes and perhaps in correct general approach to answer on question "where do armenians come from?" Lingustic...

    Anglo-Saxon Migrations

    Were the migrations a mass exodus of people forcing the locals to move out to Brittany or Britonia, or was it a smaller number that ended up becoming the ruling class and coexisting with the locals? Simple question, not sure if the answer will be simple, though. I'm new to this era of history...
