I think the subject of ancient languages is fascinating.
I'm currently reading a book called "A History of Ancient Britain" by Neil Oliver, in which he charts the history of the British Isles from when
humans recolonised this land after the end of the last ice age 12,000 years ago all the way until the departure of the Romans in 43AD.
And when I read in the book all about Stonehenge or Skara Brae or neolithic stone circles or burial mounds or Bronze Age copper mines in North Wales I
often think: "What languages did those ancient Britons speak over all those millennia?"
The answer is that we just don't know. It's a complete mystery and, for some reason, I just think it's fascinating just to imagine what languages
these people spoke and what the grammar of their languages was like.
