This book debuted in the 's and was probably reasonably current at the time. It explores the general questions relating to the question of who the speakers of Proto-Indo Reviews: Marija Gimbutas (Lithuanian: Marija Gimbutienė; Janu – February 2, ) (English: /'ɡɪmbutas/) was a Lithuanian-American archaeologist and anthropologist known for her research into the Neolithic and Bronze Age cultures of "Old Europe" and for her Kurgan hypothesis, which located the Proto-Indo-European homeland in the Pontic Steppe.

In historical linguistics, Italo-Celtic is a grouping of the Italic and Celtic branches of the Indo-European language family on the basis of features shared by these two branches and no others. There is controversy about the causes of these similarities.

They are usually considered to be innovations, likely to have developed after the breakup of the Proto-Indo-European language.

Indo-Europeans are those who lived in eastern Europe and central Asia before they migrated to India. They descended from Africa.

She completed and supplemented the final book of Marija Gimbutas, The Living Goddesses. Over the past decade, a group of prolific and innovative evolutionary biologists has sought to reinvent historical linguistics through the use of phylogenetic and phylogeographical analysis, treating cognates like genes and conceptualizing the spread of languages in terms of the diffusion of viruses.

Using these techniques, researchers claim to have located the origin of the Indo-European. Varia on the Indo-European Past is a collection of essays in honor of Marija Gimbutas with a more limited objective.

English, Spanish, Persian, and Hindi all trace their origins back to different forms of the original Indo-European language.In his version three global stages of Indo-European language formation are distinguished: boreal, in the Late Paleolithic; early Indo-European, in the Mesolithic; and late Indo-European.
