The main objective of the DISPERSALS project is to investigate the migration and dispersal dynamics of
early Homo sapiens in sub-Saharan Africa, evaluate those conflicting models, and examine the claim
that the successful human dispersals originated in southern Africa and moved to eastern Africa in the
last c. 100,000 years. This will be accomplished by examining issues of cultural and biological
continuity/discontinuities between the Limpopo and the Save river basins in central Mozambique and the
two most important geographic centers of human development, i.e., southern and eastern Africa.
