    The Akkadian of this lexicon was spoken by Neolithic farmers who migrated to Europe from the Middle East starting around 6500 BCE. This lexicon combined with the new genetic migration information demonstrates that Europe had its own ancient Pagan civilization just as important and innovative as any other ancient civilization. This lexicon begins with the Cuneiform Akkadian dictionary put out by the University of Chicago which has been refined by the incorporation of over 250 translations of alphabetic archaeological texts done to the strict scholar’s standard. These texts were written on stone and pottery and date to between 2000 BCE and 500 CE. Modern European languages did not start to develop until Akkadian started mixing with Indo-European when those speakers invaded Europe around 3500 BCE. Different types of mixing resulted in the main language/culture groups of Celtic, Germanic/Nordic, Greek, and Latin. The original native Akkadian speakers managed to survive on the margins of Europe for a while longer. Texts formally labeled as Minoan, Etruscan, Phoenician, Aegean, Punic, Celtic, and Israelite are all actually Alphabetic Akkadian.
