“Let us make some general remarks before discussing the purely technical exposition of the method. It should be noted at the outset that even today’s Egyptians, after so many millennia of crossbreeding, still belong to the blood group B of the Negroes of West Africa except group A2, except for the present inhabitants of The delta region that have obviously come from elsewhere. Since the blood groups of the last prehistory men can in some cases be determined from their skeletons and the remains of their mummies, there is a possibility of studying migration. The blood group A, is of importance to anthropology. It is characteristic of whites of European origin, and is not found in principle in colored races, in Negroes in particular.”
