According to Atkinson & Gray's dating, the split
between the Germanic and Italic languages was
approximately 3000 BC. The split between Italic &
Germanic from Celtic was about 600 years earlier. The
split between the various Italic languages from each
other is dated to 1,700 years ago (that grouping
includes Italian, Sardinian, Spanish, Portuguese,
French, and Romanian).
Interestingly, the split in the Celtic languages
(Irish, Welsh, Breton) at 1000 BC corresponds rather
nicely with the rise of Continental Celtic culture as
reflected in the archaeological record.
