    I don't know if this will help, but I'll try anyway.

    Between 4000 and 2000 BC, an unknown ethnic group developed overseas trade and are known to have either settled colonies or contacted them through trade from India to Egypt. (Most of the colonies were around the coastline of Saudi Arabia, and they were referred to as the "blackheads" in ancient writings.)

    Chinese legends (including the Shih King) often mention the "blackheaded people" on their own coastlines perhaps from 2200 to 1500 BC. That's as far as I've read so far.

    ******* peoples settled islands from Burma to Australia at some point in the past including those of Malaysian descent as far east as the Philippines and eventually the Aborigines in Australia.

    The Olmecs are known to have landed in South America around 1500 BC. Sculptures they made of themselves appeared to be of African ****** and their language was related to languages of Western Africa.

    Arabs mostly settled in the Saudi deserts and traded in spices, gold and copper along the land routes, not sea routes. (This is not to say it didn't happen much later in history...)
