These Aryan races Aryan races can be traced by means of tradition or excavation. They honoured their dead by a long series of customs which shed a surprising light on the ideas of man concerning a life after death. The Aryans undoubtedly, like other races, once worshipped and prayed to trees, stamps, stones and animals not only as symbols of divinity, but as real embodiments of a divine anima.
