And of course passage tomb distribution suggests that connections to
that Atlantic coastal area (Brittany to Gibraltar and beyond) go back
to the Neolithic, well before 3000 B.C.

I have not been following this thread, so I am unaware if the following has
already been discussed.
I was watching a program on public television about some islands off of the
African Coast.  These islands are not accessable from the mainland of Africa
due to Ocean Currents.  They were conquered by the Spanish a few hundred years
ago, and the indegenous people have been bred out.  Only remnants of the
original island culture survive, including a unique form of communicating by
whistles.  In the television program, they speculated that the original
inhabitants may have been of Celtic stock, due to some archeaological evidence.
Does anybody have:

A:  The name of this group of islands

B:  Any more information on the Celtic theory?
