Seite 241 - Meroite communities were in great measure derived from the Indo-Arabian stock ; thus pointing to a triple Caucasian source for the origin of the Egyptians, when regarded as one people extending from Meroe to the Delta. 4.

That the great preponderance of heads conforming in all their characters to those of the purer Caucasian nations, as seen in the Pelasgic and Semitic tribes, suggests the inference that the valley of the Nile derived its primitive civilized inhabitants from one of these sources ; and the greater proportion of this series of crania in Lower Egypt may, perhaps, serve to indicate the seats of early colonization. 3. That the Austral-Egyptian or...
Seite 239 - Egyptians," which was referred to a Committee. In this paper, Dr. Morton first took a view of those nations with whom the Egyptians appear to have held intercourse, either for war or commerce, in the early epochs of their history ; and among those whom he has been able to identify, from a comparison of the heads figured in the work of Rosellini, are the Celts, the Scythians, the Pelasgic and Semitic nations, the Hindoos, Arabs and Negroes.
