Mr.Fergusson tells us in his His.of Architecture, that all "the most remarkable series of monuments the world possesses, were built by people of Turanian race, " who were "the first to people the whole world".
Writing as it were geologically, he adds: " they were the substructure of the whole, and occupied the vast portion of its surface: - everywhere underlying all the others, and affording their disintegrating materials to form the more recent strata that now overlie and frequently obliterate them - in appearance at least".
Speaking as an historian of architecture, he says that "in the age of the Pyramid builders, all the arts (developed by these Aithiopik races) were as perfect and as complete, as they were when the country fell under the domination of the Romans".
And this is not so in the West only; for in China, he thinks "the earliest works are as perfect- in some respects more so- as those of to-day;" whilst in Tartary Northern and Southern India, Barma, Siam, Java, &., he finds "Turanian monuments of dimensions unsurpassed....and displaying a degree of taste and skill the most remarkable."
Whilst, in regards to the Aryans, who gradually supplanted these great artizans and architects, he finds, as in the West so in the East, they took thousands of years to equal the Turanians, even thought they had their works before them, and the builers to instruct and aid them. He states that, "no Shemite and no Aryan built even a tomb that could last a century, or was worthy to remain so long."
Even the arts developed by Pelasgi, Etruskans and Kelts, he attributes to their admixture of Turanian blood; indeed he thinks the former were " the last men of the Turanians.... adn displacers of more purely Turanian tribes", from whom they also borrowed their religions and mythologies. "Their quasi-Turanian theology (or rather theosophy and theogony) required tmeples almost as grand as those of the Copts and Tamuls;" yet not till the very close of the 7th century BC. were any worthy Aryan shrines reared within Grecian limits or Western Asia; nor in India till about the 6th century BC. or the rise of Budhism.
There were indeed prosperous cities and necessarily shrines in the days of Aryan Rama and other stirring periods of the epic poems; and the early Budhists mention shrines and palaces, but they must have been rude and, except as caves, ephemeral; for not until about the Christian era were there any really enduring shrines - as stupas with temples, and this must have been some 3000 years after the Aryan began to displace the old Turano-Kusian rulers.
That the invaders were then rude nomads, we shall show more fully hereafter, from such passages as those wherein they describe the "cities and towers" of the Turanians as "built of stone firm as iron, lofty and impregnable."
Even in America, says Mr.Fergusson, Turanian art "sprang up with as much perfection we may assume, as it would have attained, had they (the Turanians) been prnctised for thousands of years". Nay, he is "startled to find" that the arts of those "who inhahited theSouth of France, on the skirts of the Glacial period, are identical with those of the Eskiom of the present day, and even at that early period, they had attained a degree of perfection which could hardly be surpassed by any people in the same condition of life at the present day."

The Turanian races were the first to people the world beyond the limits of the original cradle of mankind, in the valley of the Euphrates before the Semitic or Aryan races came there.
In the ancient world the typical Turanians were the Egyptians ; in the modern, the Chinese and Japanese, and perhaps the Mexicans.
The Turanians existed in the valley of the Euphrates before the Semitic or Aryan races came there. The Tunguses in the north, the Mongols, Turks, and all the tribes generally described as Tartars, are Turanians.
The oldest people in Europe of this family are the Pelasgi and the Etruscans. The race also appears in the Magyars, Finns, and Lapps, but ultimately they were everywhere overpowered by the Aryans who drove them into remote corners.
The Semitic races developed themselves in the track of country between the Mediterranean, Tigris, and Red Sea; also in Abyssinia, and colonized the northern coast of Africa.
The Turanians were builders; the Semitic races never erected a building worthy of the name. When King Solomon decided to build the Temple at Jerusalem, he lead recourse to Turanians to take the lead in the work.
The Aryans first appear prominently in the Western world in Greece, where by a union with the Pelasgi, a people apparently of Turanian race, they produced a civilization more brilliant than anything the world had before seen.
The Aryans next appear in Rome, mixed with the Turanians, Etruscans, and Celtic tribes of Italy; and lastly in Northern Europe.
The Picts, or Pictish, were a Celtic race, and were first known to history in the northeast of Scotland. Their descendants are now found in Ireland, the Highlands of Scotland, a part of Wales, and the north of France.
The Scoti, or Scots, were also a Celtic people from Ireland
