''Think of "waves" of migration sweeping through Europe,
sometimes pushing the previous inhabitants aside and sometimes
catching them up in the spreading wave.''
That is the Victorian ear paradigm. The concept of waves is in error.
Think more of a transfer of culture. The earlier people did not leave. The
Proto Celt to Celt paradigm was being floated about in the late 1970s....
heresy back then, but now we know it as true.
No waves wiping out the poor chaps there before.
