Well it is very likely that some of them are the earliest female Europeans
and retained their language. I wouldn't have a clue why they so fancied that
R1b male (speaking I don't know what) who wandered into their encampment one
night..........- or maybe had to put up with he and his colleagues that
attacked it. They may be the earliest males left but through much of early
European history it was possibly some other blokes.

I meant the belief that the Basques are the physical, cultural, and

linguistic descendants of the earliest modern humans to inhabit Western

Europe, and especially the notion that the R1b haplotypes found among them

are the result of descent from the earliest West European males.
