A mathematical model of the dispersal of colonies produced by the stochastic migration process depending on the total population of the group is considered. The expected velocity of the spatial expanding of the settlement range of colonies is analyzed, utilizing the fractal concept applied to the pattern of spatial distribution of colonies. The model is used to consider the spreading phenomenon of early farming in Europe, with the data of neolithic sites with C-14 dates.
