Ancient graffiti proves Spain’s Irish links

Vatic Note: This would make sense given our research on the RH neg blood and the general population that shows the greatest percentage, which were the Basque, in Northern Spain and Southern France.   Additionally, the Basque were seafaring and the Celts have many of the same characteristics of the Basque.  If this be true, which it appears it is,  then this is just another possible connection between the two cultures. 

Remember, the Celts were not religious during that time in Spain but were converted after reaching the British Isles.  I am going to try and dig a bit deeper into this if its possible.  If true, is this why the British have a very long history of battling the Celts?

Were the British concerned with the RH negs and what they could do to them?  I don't know, but the British do have a long history of attacking and pursuing the celts.  This could explain it since the British royalty are Khazars and "blue bloods" which could be threatened by the celts being exposed as hybrids.

Ancient graffiti proves Spain’s Irish links

An ancient inscription discovered on a 14th century church in Spain’s Galicia region has been identified as Gaelic; the first written evidence of the northern region’s Irish and Scottish heritage.

For centuries it has gone unnoticed, weathered by Galicia’s incessant drizzle but still visible to those with an eagle-eye.

On one of the granite walls of Santiago church in the small town of Betanzos, a small previously unintelligible inscription five metres above ground kept historians and epigraphists, or people who study ancient inscriptions, baffled for decades.

Researchers working for a private association called the Gaelaico Project now believe they’ve finally deciphered what it reads: "An Ghaltacht" or "Gaelic-speaking area".

"If our interpretation is right, the inscription isn’t related to religious matters, but rather to the language that was spoken in Galicia at the time," Proxecto Gaelaico head Martín Fernández Maceiras told local daily La Voz de Galicia.

"It seems logical that the inscription was made while the church was being built (in the 14th century)."

Up to now, Galicia, along with Asturias and northern Portugal, have been informally considered part of the ancient Celtic nations (Ireland, Scotland, Wales, Brittany, Isle of Man and Cornwall) due to cultural and historical reasons rather than because of written proof.

Although researchers are hoping to get a second opinion from expert epigraphists on whether the inscription does indeed read “Gaelic-speaking area”, the chances of it being the first written evidence of Galicia’s Celtic past are high.

Despite the dominance of Latin, there are plenty of Gaelic traits still present in Galicia,” James Duran, academic expert on minority languages at the US’s Stanford University, told La Voz de Galicia.

The Inscription found in Betanzos

In this thematic document we focus on an inscription carved on a buttress of Santiago’s Church, built in Betanzos in the 14th century.

If our interpretation of this inscription is correct, its meaning is not associated with any religious subject. The inscription carved on the buttress literally means “Gaelic-speaking area”

Ruins of the houses of the Castro of Coaña, next to Coaña (Asturias).

From Wikipedia: A castro is a fortified settlement, usually pre-Roman, some from late Bronze Age and Iron Age, the oldest research associated with the Celtic culture. These are frequently found in the Northern Spain, particularly in Asturias, Galicia, Cantabria, Basque Country and the province of Ávila, with the Castro culture and on the plateau with Las Cogotas culture.
