Due to new technology, scientists have been able to determine the first race of people came from Africa. These people were known as the San People. They were known as many others during this time as hunters and gatherers. This means that they would hunt around for bears and other animals to hunt for their meat. They would also gather berries and plants that they could find. Many hunters and gatherers were known as nomadic people because they would have to go throughout different locations in Africa to find more food.
It is believed that these people lived as far back as over 200,000 years ago. However, an artifact that dates the furthest back in time is in 44,000 BCE where a group of tools were discovered that is believed to have belonged to this group of people.
