The Migrations of Early Culture: A Study of the Significance of the Geographical, Distribution of the Practice of Mummification, as Evidence of the Migrations of Peoples and the Spread of Certain Customs and Beliefs (Classic Reprint) by Grafton Elliot Smith (Paperback / softback, 2015)
Excerpt from The Migrations of Early Culture: A Study of the Significance of the Geographical, Distribution of the Practice of Mummification, as Evidence of the Migrations of Peoples and the Spread of Certain Customs and Beliefs When these pages were crudely flung together fate was contemplated for them other than that of publication in the proceedings of a scientific society, as an appeal to ethlogists to recognise the error of their ways and repent. They were intended merely as a mass of evidence to force scientific men to recognise and admit that in former ages kwledge and culture spread in much the same way as they are kwn to be diffused to-day. The only difference is that the pace of migration has become accelerated. The re-publication in book form was suggested by the Secretary of the Manchester University Press, who thought that the matters discussed in these pages would appeal to a much wider circle of readers than those who are given to reading scientific journals.
