I wondered if anyone was interested in this article about the spread of Indo-European languages?

It’s a fascinating subject :) . The article makes a lot of interdisciplinary co-operation to conclude that Indo-European languages were spread by people intermingling rather than people on horses racing around spreading their culture! But it was interesting.
