L.A. Waddell on origins of Britons

L.A. Waddell, in a 1914 book, The Phoenician Origins of Britons, Scots and Anglo-Saxons, offers another view on the question of where the peoples of Britain originated. Needless to say, the theories held back in Waddell’s day are not politically correct, but I think books like his, with their refreshingly different way of viewing the past, are worth reading, if only to remind ourselves that the current dogmas are not proven fact. There are different ways to look at the evidence available, and doing so requires opening the mind to alternative ideas, outside the accepted ‘BBC’/PC version of Britain’s past.

In any case, here’s the link to the Archive.org version of the book, for anyone interested.
