Childe (1926: The Aryans. A Study of Indo-European Origins, London). a. The Old European Theory compares some old European vocabulary (especially river names), which would be older than the spread of Late PIE through Europe. It points out the possibility of an older, Pre-IE III spread of IE, whether branches of IE II or PIE or even an earlier related language. b. This is, in turn, related with the theories of a Neolithic revolution causing the peacefully spreading of an older Indo-European language into Europe from Asia Minor from around 7000 BC, with the advance of farming.

This linguistic theory is usually mixed with archaeological findings: Figure 15. C. The Corded Ware complex of cultures (in slight red) traditionally represents for many scholars the arrival of the first speakers of Northern Dialects in central Europe, coming from the Yamna culture (in yellow). 000. The Globular Amphorae culture (in orange) may be slightly earlier, but the relation between these two cultures is unclear. Denmark and southern Scandinavia are supposed to have been the Germanic homeland, while present-day West Germany would have been the Celtic (and possibly Italic) homeland; the east zone, then, corresponds to the Balto-Slavic homeland.

One scheme, argued for by Schmidt (1988) among others, links Gaulish with Brythonic in a P-Celtic node, leaving Goidelic as Q-Celtic. The difference between P and Q languages is the treatment of PIE kw, which became *p in the P-Celtic languages but *k in Goidelic. An example is the Proto-Celtic verbal root *kwrin- "to buy", which became pryn- in Welsh but cren- in Old Irish. The other scheme links Goidelic and Brythonic together as an Insular Celtic branch, while Gaulish and Celtiberian are referred to as Continental Celtic.
