    And of course to back it up but not quite strong evidence on its own is the story of the Mileasians in the Irish book of invasions.

    In his 2006 book The Origins of the British (revised in 2007), Oppenheimer argued that neither Anglo-Saxons nor Celts had much impact on the genetics of the inhabitants of the British Isles, and that British ancestry mainly traces back to the Palaeolithic Iberian people, now represented best by Basques, instead. He also argued that the Scandinavian input has been underestimated. He published an introduction to his book in Prospect magazine[4] and answered some of his critics in a further Prospect magazine article in June 2007.[5]

    Although Basque-like Neolithic farmers did populate Britain (and much of Northern Europe) during the Neolithic period, upwards of 90% of their DNA was overturned by a North European population of ultimate Russian Steppe origin as part of an ongoing migration process that brought large amounts of Steppe DNA (including the R1b haplogroup) to North and West Europe.[6] Modern autosomal genetic clustering is testament to this fact, as the British and Irish cluster genetically very closely with other North European populations, not Iberians, Galicians, Basques or those from the south of France.


    Wikipedia’s summary of oppenheimer’s theory, yeah I don’t think his theory was right but I think he had the right idea of where some population flow was going, during the Bronze Age, when a indo european elite, or likely Celtic or pre-Celtic origin still controlled most of northwest Iberia, probably as a ruling elite as the Hindus and Greeks started out as, traded with Ireland in the Atlantic Bronze Age system that connected the entire Atlantic sea board, my theory is, that some of the celts that made their way to Ireland where no from Gaul, as has long been suspected by modern academics, but Iberia, as the culture and language seem oddly connected, and it doesn’t help that the Irish also seem to have a strong focus on both the god Lugus and circular fortresses, while the Gauls had more Roman-like square ones, even before Roman influence.

    Why do you put expiry dates on the polls? I just let the polls stay open indefinitely.

    Anyways, Greek mythology seems the most interesting to me out of the different European mythologies.

    Only because we have better preserved records of it, Norse mythology is pretty cool as it is but imagine if we had all the stories, same with Irish or welsh.
