The process began tens of thousands of years ago, and involved an incredible series of expeditions, adaptations. As early as 1000 CE, Viking explorers and migrants headed west from Iceland in search of new territories, discovering Greenland, already occupied, and the east coast of North America, also already occupied. At roughly the same time, the final stage in the Great Migration was taking place in the southwest corner of the Pacific Islands, as the ancestors of the Maori moved to Aotearoa, thus completing the remarkable habitation of the Pacific Islands.

The dynasties of China, for example, were more complex, technologically advanced, literate, and theologically enriched than those of Western Europe at the time of European expansion.

The expansion also continued to the south. Debate continues about how the first inhabitants crossed the Straits of Malacca and reached the Australian continent. There is also a great deal of controversy about when this migration occured. The widely accepted date is approximately 40,000 years ago; some discoveries have suggested that the first habitation could be dated some 20,000 years earlier. Scientists have speculated that the Aborigines either crossed over to Australia by boat or, depending on the timing of the migration, could have walked south at a time when an ice age lowered the ocean levels sufficiently to make such passage possible.
