Some fascinating new theories emerging on the origins of the Celts and our languages. Could it be that Celtic developed from an Aryan ancestor language in the West and spread East as far a modern day Turkey? Recent DNA evidence suggests that Celtic DNA in Ireland, Britain, France and the Iberian Peninsula is much older than had previously been thought. Celtic and Latin belong to the same branch of Indo-European (they are the only two languages in this group), so it may be that all the Aryans in Western Europe spoke the same language, and over time Celtic and Latin diverged from each other.
