The Real Eve (Discovery Channel HD Documentary)
The Real Eve is the title of a popular science book written by Stephen Oppenheimer and a documentary based on the book. The book is largely based on the „Out of Africa theory“ of human origins. Oppenheimer uses information from various disciplines including genetics, archeology, anthropology and linguistics to synthesize theories on the origin of modern humans and their subsequent dispersal around the world.
The Eve in the title refers to Mitochondrial Eve, a name used for the most recent common ancestor of all humans in the matrilineal (mother to daughter) line of descent.
