Possible Indo-European language evolution

An amazing animation showing the evolution of language in Europe. This isn't pure fact, just one interpretation of how it might have happened.

I found it interesting how Celtic started in what is now northern France. Albanian existed in Greece before Greek. Italic started near Venice and worked its way south. Kurdish pushed Persian out of Iraq. French started along the Med and worked its way north. Polish and Czech were among the last to form.
