Walking the World.

The Out of Eden Walk Project is the brainchild of journalist Paul Salopek. Salopek plans to retrace the migration patterns of early man. His journey will take him out of Africa across four continents and will cover 21,000 miles. It will begin in Ethiopia at Herto Bouri, the archaeological site where some of the oldest human bones have been uncovered, and he will finish at Tierra del Fuego where the continental migration of our ancestors ended. Paul plans to experience the journey that our first ancestors made at their pace (walking).

Salopek’s route will lead him north from Africa into the Middle East. From there his antique route leads eastward across the vast gravel plains of Asia to China, then north again into Siberia. From Russia he will board a ship to Alaska and head down the western coast of the new world to Tierra del Fuego.

Paul is using fossil evidence and genography – a field that sifts the DNA of living populations for mutations useful in tracking ancient diasporas – to plan his route. He plans to publish a record of his journey entitled ‘A Walk Through Time’ in 2016.

Greece (Greek: Ελλάδα, Elláda, pronounced [eˈlaða], officially the Hellenic Republic (Ελληνική Δημοκρατία [eliniˈci ðimokraˈti.a] Ellīnikī́ Dīmokratía) and known since ancient times as Hellas (/ˈhɛləs/; Greek: Ἑλλάς), is a country in Southern Europe. According to the 2011 census, Greece’s population is around 11 million. Athens is the nation’s capital and largest city.

Greece is strategically located at the crossroads of Europe, Western Asia, and Africa, and shares land borders with Albania to the northwest, the Republic of Macedonia and Bulgaria to the north and Turkey to the northeast. The country consists of nine geographic regions: Macedonia, Central Greece, the Peloponnese, Thessaly, Epirus, the Aegean Islands (including the Dodecanese and Cyclades), Thrace, Crete, and the Ionian Islands. The Aegean Sea lies to the east of the mainland, the Ionian Sea to the west, and the Mediterranean Sea to the south. Greece has the longest coastline on the Mediterranean Basin and the 11th longest coastline in the world at 13,676 km (8,498 mi) in length, featuring a vast number of islands (approximately 1,400, of which 227 are inhabited). Eighty percent of Greece consists of mountains, of which Mount Olympus is the highest, at 2,917 m (9,570 ft).

Modern Greece traces its roots to the civilization of Ancient Greece, which began with the Aegean Civilizations of the Bronze Age. Considered the cradle of all Western civilization, Greece is the birthplace of democracy, Western philosophy, the Olympic Games, Western literature and historiography, political science, major scientific and mathematical principles, and Western drama, including both tragedy and comedy. The cultural and technological achievements of Greece greatly influenced the world, with many aspects of Greek civilization being imparted to the East through Alexander the Great’s campaigns, and to the West through its incorporation into the Roman Empire. This rich legacy is partly reflected by the 18 UNESCO World Heritage Sites located in Greece, ranking it 6th in Europe and 13th in the world. The modern Greek state, which comprises most of the historical core of Greek civilization, was established in 1830 following the war of independence from the Ottoman Empire.
