Cultural geography includes the indigenous peoples and the waves of migration outward and inward.

Sub-Saharan Africa is called the "cradle of humankind" because fossils from all periods of prehistory are found and date back to the Australopithecines who preceded the later Homo habilis and Homo erectus.

Homo erectus tools have been found from Asia to Europe illustrating that they migrated from Africa. Immigrations into Sub-Saharan Africa were made by Bantu-speaking people who introduced farming among other things.
