Abstract : Starting from the importance of deer in Scotland folklore, which population is anthropologically related to the Cruthin of Ireland, we are not surprised to find traces of a deer cult in Buile Suibhne, paragraph 40. The origin of this cult could come from Siberia following similarities found in a paper by Anisimov. The subject of the article is to show the archaeological possibility of such an origin, starting from Afanasievo culture (Altay-Yenissei) to the Proto-Indo-European and Indo-European populations moving westward. The European aboriginal hypothesis of this cult is discarded as exemplified by the Val Camonica evolutionary process, and a new understanding is furnished to the palaeolithic drawings of the Volp caverns.
