The Galician population, which is of a Palaeolithic origin, belongs to the late Bronze Age and to the Iron Age Atlantic Celtic cultural complex. In the concept of the genesis and development of Celtic culture, our study - or our autopsies, “visións” – focuses on Galicia, the northwestern region of Spain. As Alinei’s 'Palaeolithic Continuity Theory' states, we reject the hypothesis that an 'Indo-European' or 'Celtic' population, proceeding from Central Europe, could have come to Galicia as an ethnic group in the Bronze or Iron Ages. In the cultural Atlantic area, the background of complex accumulative systems, cultural convergence and interrelationship developed and transformed a common ethnology, religiousness, law, and ancient forms of political organization (without solution of continuity) almost to the present day.
