I speak Scottish Gaelic and Welsh fluently but from what I understand these languages lacked a few significant features of the Insular Branch, like conjugated prepositions and consonant mutation which makes the issue of just how the grammar would be set up significantly different.

so I'm not sure what you're attempting to say here.
There were "territorial independent societies" in Europe long before the Romans. In fact, the Romans would never have been able to accomplish what they did without borrowing extensively from pre-existing cultures, notably the Greeks and the Etruscans.

I didn't say that societies didn't have a culture. I said PEOPLE didn't have a culture.
