I expect there were grants and so forth.

Phase 5: Post-Roman and medieval - No Anglo-Saxon or medieval features were found
Koch claims Celtic developed as a trade language for the elites of the Atlantic façade of Europe during the Bronze Age, when intense trade and cultural contacts can be proven from Portugal all the way through Scotland.
New theory that the earliest Celtic languages evolved in the Atlantic Zone from Shetland to Andalúcia
compelling arguments in archaeology, linguistics and genetics all make a persuasive theory based on substantial evidence for Tartassian and celtic/ Gaelic languages developing all up from southern Spain and Portugal through Galicia and into the Celtic countries.
As a trade language, Celtic = Phoenician?

In previous posts, I was wondering why there are anomalous hotspots of Haplogroup R1b in Russia and Central Africa
I've just found that the Russian hotspot is one group of people, the Bashkirs, and they speak their own language.
The Central African hotspot remains unclear, but it seems to correlate with the Kanem–Bornu Empire

The name Udmurt comes from *odo-mort 'meadow people,' where the first part represents the Permic root *od(o) 'meadow, glade, turf, greenery', and the second part, murt means 'person' (cf. Komi mort, Mari mari), probably an early borrowing from an Iranian language (such as Scythian): *mertä or *martiya 'person, man' (cf. Persian mard), which is thought to have been borrowed from the Indo-Aryan term *maryá- 'man', literally 'mortal, one who is bound to die' (< PIE *mer- 'to die'). Compare Old Indic márya 'young warrior' and Old Indic marut 'chariot warrior', both connected specifically with horses and chariots. This is supported by a document dated 1557, in which the Udmurts are referred to as lugovye lyudi 'meadow people', alongside the traditional Russian name otyaki.
Many Udmurt people have red hair, and a festival to celebrate the red-haired people has been held annually in Izhevsk since 2004.
