This text attempts to survey history since the time when the first people left Africa to settle the globe. It pays attention to technology and certain skills the author feels were breakthroughs for the human race. Attention is also given to the rise of major religions, geographical factors, what people ate and how hard they worked. The author also pays attention to empires and they areas they covered, noting that the size of the territory which one leader or state can rule has grown progressively larger.
