Caption: Indo-European language origins. Map showing the theory that the Indo-European group of languages originated around 8500 years ago in Anatolia (modern-day Turkey). The distribution of languages and their ages was examined in a study published in 2012. The ages are colour-coded from oldest (red) to youngest (blue), according to the key at upper left. The Indo-European language family contains several hundred related languages (including Spanish, English and Hindi) ranging from Europe through the Middle East to India.
