The Indo-Sumerian Seals Deciphered: discovering Sumerians of Indus Valley as Ph"nicians, Barats, Goths and Famous Vedic Aryans, 3100–2300 B.C.

Abstract

COL. WADDELL, the well-known authority on Tibet, has stepped in where archæologists, as yet, fear to tread. He has produced an interpretation of the remarkable seals which were found, with other relics suggesting an affinity with ancient Sumeria, at Mohenjo Daro and Harappa in the Indus Valley, and illustrated and described by Sir John Marshall, Director of the Archaeological Survey of India, the Illustrated London News in September of last year. “Within a day or two of receiving the photographs,” says Col. Waddell, “I was able … to decipher and read the greater part of the inscriptions on the seals.”
