Stephen Oppenheimer, M.D. is a British University of Oxford professor and leading expert in using DNA to track global human migrations over the past 50,000 years. He is author of the books Eden in the East, The Real Eve (U.K. title, Out of Eden) and The Origins of the British. Dr. Oppenheimer postulates that modern man, numbering no more than 200 individuals, left Africa only once, some 60,000 to 80,000 years B.P., and replaced archaic populations while populating the non-African world.
