It includes discussion of hair and language types, comparisons between Africans and Australian natives, the Negrito-Papuan-Dravidian theory, consideration of the age of the Australian continent through geology and fossils, the variety of types among Australians and Tasmanians and their affinities, a comparison of Tasmanians and their customs with natives of S.W. Australia, a discussion of the Dravidian invasion and influences in Australia, the relics of a Papuan invasion, the origin of the two races, fair and dark, totemic ceremonies, some natives with Jewish features, stone weapons, the similarities of customs between Australians and other dark races and a summary of views on origin favoured by the writer, D.B.
