OriginofAryansFrontCover-web1By Isaac Taylor. A fine overview of early European racial anthropology, first published in a time before political correctness and leftist hatred suppressed the science.

Taylor, the Canon of York, provides a comprehensive summary of the vexed issue of the origins of the Indo-European peoples.

He points out that there is no “Aryan race” per se, but rather a collection of Aryan languages—and shows that language alone cannot be a final indicator of racial origins.

Taylor’s book was the first major English-language work to reject the Ex oriente lux theory of Indo-European origins in favor of a birthplace in southern Russia.

Using a thorough evaluation of cranial, archaeological and cultural evidence, he presents his conclusion.

Often attacked and dismissed by contemporaries, modern DNA has proven many of Taylor’s theories to be completely accurate.

Isaac Taylor (1829–1901) was a philologist, toponymist, and Anglican canon of York, England, from 1885 until his death. He specialised in ancient history and his studies of the origin of European peoples. His major archaeological and philological studies were Words and Places (1864), Etruscan Researches (1874), The Alphabet (1883), Greeks and Goths (1879), and The Origin of the Aryans (1880).
