The first we hear of the Arathi, they're a nomadic people. It's reasonable to believe that the vrykul who fled Ymiron never settled down; between the wars of the elves, trolls and Aqir, it's possible it would've been fatal to do so. The known human kingdoms didn't rise for millenia after the fall of the Gurubashi and Amani empires, and specifically until after the Amani lost a major war with elves of Silvermoon. The Arathi tribes were barbarians on the edges of the mighty Amani civilization.It's also possible they DID create a civilization, but all evidence of it was destroyed when the Well went boom; a lot of real estate was destroyed.Either way, the western half of old Kalimdor was dominated by the Aqir for a good chunk of that timespan, and probably not very hospitable. Combine that with Ymiron's people living in the east, and it's not very surprising there's not any evidence of humanity on Kalimdor pre-Jaina.
