Human migrations map, interactive 2D animation

The red lines show the possible migration pathway of the ancient human Homo erectus (sometimes known as Homo ergaster). There is little controversy about the travels of H. erectus. This possible path was mapped using fossil evidence that spans more than 1.5 million years. Many researchers believe that H. erectus lived until approximately 300,000 years ago. However, H. erectus may have survived in Indonesia until 40,000 years ago.
