This blog is all about the journey of mankind – from a few thousand primitive hunter gatherers living in Africa some 200,000 years ago to the seven billion people living today and occupying every corner of our planet.
It’s a fascinating journey and one which has only become known in my lifetime thanks to the work of Crick and Watson who first described the DNA molecule in 1953. And much more remains to be discovered as researchers all over the world delve into our ancient past.
As regards myself, I am a retired oil geologist, blessed with four children and eight grandkids, and living on a beautiful island near the town of Stavanger in south west Norway. My interests are in all things old – from the rocks below us, through Roman architecture, family history, antiques and now our deep ancestry. Hence this website and blog.
Thanks to Bruce and his girlfriend Bobbie in Cumberland, Vancouver Island for their tremendous help in designing and launching this website.
