One of Turkey’s mega projects, Istanbul's Eurasia Tunnel, has welcomed its first official passenger—Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan. He drove through the tunnel, which goes under the Bosphorus strait, from Europe to Asia. The 14.6-kilometer tunnel will reduce travel time from 100 minutes to just 15 minutes, and will be used by 100,000 vehicles a day.

Re-dating of archaeological evidence across Australia and Southeast Asia indicates a post-Toba population expansion colonized Eurasia from Australasia 65,000 years ago.

Fenton’s recently released book The Forgotten Exodus: The Into Africa Theory of Human Evolution (April 2017), boasts a compelling foreword written by the internationally best-selling author, Graham Hancock, and a glowing back cover endorseme...

It used to be unfashionable to talk about the importance of geography to history, though according to Barry Cunliffe it is absolutely crucial. Geography constrains what people can do but also facilitates and enables people to build contacts. http://ukcatalogue.oup.com/product/9780199689170.do The history of Eurasia is based around geography, especially considering the distribution of resources and the developments of trade routes such as the Silk Road that connected cultures across wide areas. © Oxford University Press
