Barry Cunliffe: Who Were the Celts?
BYU Department of Anthropology
Up to 1:06:26, that is before the Q/A session, after that I have not yet watched it. Yet.
- Re intro,
- wonder what Barry Cunliffe would think of this, here:
HGL's F.B. writings : Discussion of Celtic Inis (Welsh Ynys) with Latin Insula, perhaps Greek Nesos
- Ravens being "Celtic Walkyries" might add weight to the Gaulish Druid theory of Odin's identity?
- Just before 38:28
- "they pass the wine as through a sieve".
I am reminded to Sigmund's words to his son Sinfjotle about the poison ... were there "poisons" which could be eliminated that way?
- This argument on glossochronology, you should be less sure of.
Someone did a similar thing with IndoEuropean and Russian emerged VERY late in that model (they refrained from calibrating the program by inserting known dates).
- The great megalithic tombs ...
According to my Fibonacci modelling of C14 rise, this looks like this:
2420 av. J.-Chr. 76,66562 % + 2200 ans, 4620 av. J.-Chr.
2241 av. J.-Chr. 86,26541 % + 1200 ans, 3441 av. J.-Chr.
New blog on the kid : Avec un peu d'aide de Fibonacci ... j'ai une table, presque correcte
So, 2420 BC to 2241 BC is the period you are talking about, and I wonder, does that affect your model significantly?
- You mentioned 6000 BC.
Here is my recalibration for c. 6500:
2599 av. J.-Chr. 62,75068 % + 3850 ans, 6449 av. J.-Chr.
