Around 100,000 years ago, Homo sapiens explored and populated nearly all the territories of the planet. It crossed oceans and mountains. What pushed it to go further and further afield? Which other peoples did it meet? How did the various morphotypes (skin colour, hair structure, eye shape) come about?
Discovery of Australia, theories about how America was populated, the encounter with Neanderthals in Europe.
Invention of large organized hunts. Appearance of a new form of social organization, invention of the bow, disappearance of the Neanderthals.
