This is a draft of an infographic I have started to make, to convey the sense of deep time in human migrations, and how they relate to the skin colour in native populations as well as how it is distributed across the globe. It is a work in progress, but I am hoping to, in one single image, convey that a sense of deep connections as well as break assumptions about the “purity” of original population, showing that migration and mixing has been with us since our early history (especially in europe). https://drive.google.com/open?id=1qnbwDDzPmgngm-h_AXI8oiF-LOHjyCtC
