... on Barry Cunliffe's St Patrick Day's Lecture on Celts

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 ...

4500 BC
3500 BC

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.
