Eurasia is a single continental landmass comprising Europe and Asia. Covering about 52,990,000 km2 (20,846,000 mi2), it is located primarily in the eastern and northern hemispheres, with the Arctic Ocean to the north; the Atlantic Ocean to the west; the Mediterranean Sea, the Suez Canal (and Africa), and the Indian Ocean to the south; and the Pacific Ocean to the east.

Humans first settled in Eurasia from Africa, between 125,000 and 60,000 years ago. Eurasia covers 36.2% of the Earth's total land area and contains about 72.5% of the human population (about 4.6 billion people).
