"The expansion of the Bell Beaker culture (named after their pots) appears to have been a key event, emerging in Iberia around 2800 BC and arriving in Germany several centuries later," says Dr Brotherton. "This is a very interesting group as they have been linked to the expansion of Celtic languages along the Atlantic coast and into central Europe."

(This is not a statement of fact. It is either opinion or satire; or both)
That is very interesting indeed, as I think the conventional story is that the Celts expanded from central Europe. Not out of Iberia.
The Beaker people showed up about 10 miles south of Leicester in central England, around 2000 B.C. A burial mound was found a stones throw from Smeeton-Westerby in the ‘70’s.
