Did "Otzi" spoke Tamil 5300 years ago?!!

Not open for further replies.
Otzi He lived nearly one millennium earlier than the alleged first Indo-European migration (Wave 1, ref. Indo-European migrations). Any attempt to identify what language was spoken in what Marija Gimbutas calls "Old Europe (archaeology)" is merely speculative.
It was a completely different world, which left almost imperceptible traces in the Minoan culture, for example. We can hardly catch information regarding the language.
Whether or not we accept the theory of the three Indoeuropean waves, the first Indoeuropean people reaching Europe most certainly spoke a language that would sound utterly incomprehensible to the Indoeuropean migrants of the later period. That's why there are many doubts regarding our ability to distinguish the language of the Old Europe from the Proto-Indoeuropean.
