History of Anterian migration

Human migration is the movement by people from one place to another, particularly different countries, with the intention of settling temporarily or permanently in the new location. It typically involves movements over long distances and from one country or region to another.

Historically, early human migration includes the peopling of the world, i.e. migration to world regions where there was previously no human habitation, during the Pre-Historical period. Most migrations were predominantly warlike or settlementary, consisting of conquest or expanding populations. Colonialism involves expansion of sedentary populations into previously only sparsely settled territories or territories with no permanent settlements. In the modern period, human migration has primarily taken the form of migration within and between existing sovereign states, either controlled (legal immigration) or uncontrolled and in violation of immigration laws (illegal immigration).

Migration can be voluntary or involuntary. Involuntary migration includes forced displacement (in various forms such as deportation, slave trade, trafficking in human beings) and flight (war refugees, ethnic cleansing), both resulting in the creation of diasporas.

Pre-History and the Paleo-Anterians

Various studies have yet to determine exactly where pre-historical homo-sapiens arose from, but general estimates believe that migrations of human populations begin with the movement of Paleo-Anterians somewhere in eastern Thuadia or northern Thrismari. Their patterns suggest that the Paleo-Anterians wondered about the world's continents and began splitting into various ancient cultural groups as early as 150,000 BCE and as late as 15,000 BCE. Studies also suggest the last "true unified Paleo-Anterians" disappeared around 14,000 BCE. All the world's major landmasses are thought to have been reached by at least 0 CE, and most minor ones by 1900 CE, but this theory is disputed. The Paleo-Anterians are known to have split into several differing cultures, which themselves split into further groups, these include Paleo-Encessians, an unknown paleo civilization (often dubbed Paleo-Viatoribus[1]), among others.

Ancient Ages

Hung Peoples

One of the ancient cultures to migrate is the Hungs from Sarussia, who moved into Lyonheimer in 1600BC. Originating from mountains in northern Sarussia, these people had a vastly different culture to the Germanics in Thrismari, which can still be seen in the language and people of Lyonheimer today, vastly different to neighbours.

Böyük qaçış (PR of Abjekistan)

In the late 1940s and early 1950s, Abjekistan saw a large wave of emigration to nations, such as Rutheneja and Gassasinia, where notable communities of Abjekh origin are present to this day. This important emigration wave was caused by the great famine the country's switch to communism caused.
