On the subject of Swatis, the British nailed it well when they said they seem to be from interiors of India, mostly due to their complexion I think

Of course. Imported and costly goods (Ivory handle crafted like an eagle). Who would have them? The war-lords and the rich, not poor and deprived, the 'hoi polloi'.

Brother, you are side stepping my comment. I said that warlord and his companions are a contingent of troops from Sindh

" ..the remains of a middle-aged man with a robe, woollen cap, and leather boots, along with his personal arms – a sword and two daggers."
The report does not say that the person was an officer of the army of a Sindh King.

Sent you the genetic proof privately :)

But anyway, historically Oman has had very ancient trading connections with the Indus valley

So, it doesn't surprise that it may have been a protectorate state of the Sindh empire at some point of time

Proof received and found wanting. History is a hard task master.
I don't deny that.
That is a far shot. History is not done that way. If I trade with China, China is my protectorate!? You need to provide proof that it was ever a protectorate? Protectorate of which Sindhi king?

Hello Sir

We can work on that. I'm not saying the theory is a done deal. It is a work in progress
