It is clear that Roman and Germanic Groups of languages diverged much
earlier than 2000 years ago. I do not know if Gray & Atkinson have
actually said that, but in any case they are biologists, not
When R1b came to Western and Central Europe, they apparently didn't
bring with them the Indo-European language. It seems more likely that
some of the R1b in Central Europe adopted a "centum" variation of
Indo-European language by local contact with the speakers of
Paleo-Balkan languages ( R1a ? ).
Around ~1000 BCE this "centum" R1b crowd split into three sub-branches
which became major European Groups of Languages:
a) Celtic at West (mixing with other, pre-Indo-European R1b in France
b) Italic at South (mixing with Mediterranean J2), and also
c) Germanic at North (mixing with certain branches of I).
By 7th century BCE both Celtic and Italic appear as separate languages
in various "inscriptions" .
