Stationed with the British army in Darjeeling , Waddell learned the Tibetan language and even visited Tibet several times secretly, in disguise. Waddell studied archaeology and ethnology in-between his military assignments across India and Tibet, and his exploits in the Himalayas were published in his highly successful book Among the Himalayas Various archaeological excavations were also carried out and supervised by Waddell across India, including Pataliputra , of which he did not receive recognition of discovery until long after his death, in , by the government of Bengal.

Waddell had come across many ancient Tibetan manuscripts and published them, but soon left these studies because the Tibetan manuscripts contained no reference to any ancient civilization, which he had hoped to discover.

Waddell then returned to England and briefly became Professor of Tibetan at the University College of London — Shortly after he retired and dedicated his life to writing. In , Waddell began to learn Sumerian.

Hittite , Sumerian , Babylonian. The foundation of his argument is what he saw as a persistence of cult practices, religious symbols, mythological stories and figures, and god and hero names based on etymology throughout Western and Near Eastern civilizations, but also based his arguments on his deciphered Sumerian and Indus-Valley seals, and other archaeological findings.

He is commemorated in the Giant Babax Babax waddelli. Fleet, prompting an excavation campaign under Sir John Hubert Marshall in —22, resulting in the discovery of the ancient civilization at Harappa later including Mohenjo-daro. As ancient seals were discovered from the Indus Valley, Waddell in first attempted to decipher them and claimed they were of Sumerian origin in his Indo-Sumerian Seals Deciphered, arguing that they were evidence of Sumerian colonists who arrived there c.

Waddell however argued further that the Indus Valley was colonised by Sumerians, who he identified as being Aryans , even sharing the same kings. Gordon Childe also considered this location as the homeland of the Proto-Aryans Proto-Indo-Europeans after his research on the Danubian culture , especially its pottery. The non-Semitic origin of the Sumerian language was first established in the late 19th century by Julius Oppert and Henry Rawlinson from which many different theories were proposed as to its origin.

Modern consensus is that Sumerian is a language isolate. In this work Waddell attempted to establish an Aryan Indo-European origin of the Sumerians, identifying them as Indo-Hittites or a branch of Anatolians who arrived in the Fertile Crescent during the late 4th millennium BC ultimately having originated as a Proto-Indo-European society in the Danube Valley where they founded the Sumerian kingship.

Having established civilization in Sumeria, by Aryans, Waddell through archaeology, mythology and philology attempted to show ancient Sumerian colonies across parts of Europe especially Crete and Britain , Egypt and India.

WADDELL - The British Edda

Waddell , was an exceptionally important English antiquarian, scholar and explorer. He was a polymath who spoke several oriental languages. He was also an expert on the flora and fauna of India and Tibet. His highly controversial works concern the origin and identity of the so-called Aryan Race. Controversially, he states that it predates the Finnish Kalevala. The confusion occurred due to the deliberate mythmongering of monks and scribes during the Christian era. How the Edda texts appear to have become lost in Britain and preserved in the remote inaccessible frozen fastnesses of inhospitable Iceland is referred to in the Appendix, the main cause being the notorious wholesale destruction of Ancient Briton manuscripts, stigmatized as " pagan," by the fanatical early Christian missionaries in Britain - L.
