History of Globalization

Globalization is an historical process that began with the first movement of people out of Africa into other parts of the world. Traveling short or long distances, migrants, merchants and others have delivered their ideas, customs and products to new lands. The melding, borrowing and adaptation of outside influences are found in many areas of human life.
