I agree, sort of. It is at least 10,000 years between the post glacial
migration and the first descriptions of the Celtic culture. In that time we
would have seen a huge diversity of appearance that place.

Also, as the culture spread, it no doubt absorbed many other peoples-that's
the only way it could have covered so much area. Many of those people would
not have been R1b.
