Did you know that the Basque are the OLDEST surviving ethnic group in all of Europe? Or that scholars have yet to discover the exact orgin of the Basques? Did you know their language, Euskara, is considered a language isolate? It is not linked to any other language root in the world. The Basque country (north, west Spain and into the south of France) is bordered by the Pyrenees mountains and the Bay of Biscay. This may be why they were able to be isolated and unconquered for so long. Are you getting curious yet?
