Most probably Iberians or other non-Indoeuropean people who inhabited great parts of Europe including Ireland, Britain, Sardinia and Sicily between cca 3500 and 1000 BC if not even much earlier as age of several Irish sites suggests. Partial evidence for this could be found in vivid use of triple spiral (called triskele in Ireland) until this day under name of agurro by the Basques who claim to be direct descendants of Iberians and the only surviving original European nation. Related to the topic is a theory saying that the Basques along with the Amazigh (Berbers) of North Africa are the only nations descending from the Cromagnon man solely, whereas the rest of world?s population carries genes of mixed Cromagnon and Neanderthal origin. Systematic DNA research in this field would certainly bring us closer to the truth.
