  • 0:15 - 0:20
    I want you to think about the image that you see when I say one word:
  • 0:20 - 0:21
    migrant
  • 0:23 - 0:25
    You may have pictured a crowded boat in rough waters
  • 0:25 - 0:28
    people clinging to the top of a frieght train
  • 0:28 - 0:30
    or crossing a desert wearing worn out shoes
  • 0:30 - 0:36
    this is what we see in the news cycle 24 hours, day after day, story after story
  • 0:36 - 0:41
    people who are desperate, fleeing wars, fleeing climate change, fleeing poverty
  • 0:41 - 0:42
    but in reality
  • 0:42 - 0:45
    most people move for more common reasons
  • 0:45 - 0:47
    to get a good education, to find a job...
  • 0:48 - 0:51
    to find family members,
    or to fall in love
  • 0:51 - 0:52
    and this is nothing new
  • 0:53 - 0:56
    archeologists, like me, have been studying migration
  • 0:57 - 1:01
    and finding that people for hundreds
    and even thousands of years have been moving around the globe.
  • 1:01 - 1:07
    from Europe's earliest farmers, to Vikings,
    to pirates, Roman gladiators, and even ________ cavemen.
  • 1:08 - 1:10
    and people like you and me.
  • 1:10 - 1:13
    mobility is one of the things that makes us human
  • 1:13 - 1:14
    people move
