L A fascinating figure from prehistory is the Zagrosian, or Iranian, hunter-gatherer woman from Hotu Cave (Mazandaran province of Iran), dating back to approximately 9150 BCE This woman embodies the Iran_N genetic cluster, a lineage that is a composite of ancient Iranian hunter-gatherers (Iran_Paleo) and Ancient North Eurasians (ANE).  Her genetic legacy is significant because the Iran_N cluster played a crucial role in the ethnogenesis of the Indus Valley Civilization. Through a complex process of admixture with the native South Asian hunter-gatherers, known as the Ancient Ancestral South Indians (AASI), this group contributed substantially to the genetic and cultural fabric of the region.

The period prior to European colonization of Africa was characterized by the existence of powerful and sophisticated civilizations, trade networks, and diverse societies. During this time, Africa was home to thriving kingdoms and empires, such as the Kingdom of Ghana, the Mali Empire, and the Great Zimbabwe Empire. One of the remarkable aspects of Africa before colonialism was the economic prosperity and trade networks that existed across the continent. The Trans-Saharan trade routes connected the North African coast with the interior of the continent, facilitating the exchange of goods, ideas, and cultures.

In addition to trade, agriculture played a significant role in the pre-colonial African
