Need help in guidance to world history population
I am working on a project in which I need a book that reviews population numbers in given time periods from around the world. Does anyone know of such a book for a 'layman's readability' such as myself?
If you are referring to ancient timeframes you are really out of luck because there are so many lies being spread by Empires and religions that seek to intimate they are the most advanced and ethical structures the world has ever seen. Here is an example from Wikipedia. Every point it makes is totally disproven in many places throughout World-Mysteries. In fairness to the author what he or she says would have been less offensive just ten years ago and the whole field of human evolution is changing rapidly with new and exciting finds almost every year.

Migration to the Americas took place 20,000 to 15,000 years ago, and by 2,000 years ago, most of the Pacific Islands were colonized.
Until c. 10,000 years ago, humans lived as hunter-gatherers. They generally lived in small nomadic groups known as band societies. The advent of agriculture prompted the Neolithic Revolution, when access to food surplus led to the formation of permanent human settlements. About 6,000 years ago, the first proto-states developed in Mesopotamia, Egypt's Nile Valley and the Indus Valley. Early human settlements were dependent on proximity to water and, depending on the lifestyle, other natural resources used for subsistence. But humans have a great capacity for altering their habitats by means of technology.
This next link to Wikipedia is far closer to what I think is real. The researcher referred to has gone further and proposes up to ten species of hominids or variations have resulted. The Denisovan example would prove his contention as would the Hobbit which may be connected to his Mungo people and which I found cliff drawings there which lead me to posit just that. I cannot say he has continued to develop these theories. I have seen him forced to back off some of what is said here - and I hope he continues his free-thinking research.
I have older evidences of cross-breeding now - but do not forget academics were laughing at me about saying it for most of my life.
Next up is National Geo saying they have pinpointed when humans first mated with Neanderthals. It is good that they are finally admitting it happened but to say they have the first? NONsense and ego!!!!!
