So, What Did the Old Khumric Language Sound Like?

So, what did the old Khumric language sound like?

NB: same bronze age shield found at Battersea 

this is one of those, "We don't know what Latin sounded like," issues and it applies to (allegedly) what became Modern Welsh.
I'm talking, of course, about my new sole-obsession, the Khumric Language or Language of Ancient Briton or Language of Etruria via Troy via Syria via Christ Country and the Ten Tribes of Israel via Egypt and all that Bible-y jazz.
'In the noble land of Syrie th[er] was a noble kyng and mighty and a man of grett reno[u]n that men called Dioclitian'. The story continues with the 33 daughters of Diocletian, the eldest named Albyne (Albina), who murdered their husbands and were set adrift at sea before they landed on an island, which they named Albion. [source BRUTS OF ENGLAND] attributed to the first real invasion of Britain by the Syrians in AD 1500, followed by a further invasion in AD 500 by Brutus of Troy.

KHUMRIC: it's an ancient 'root' language that's said to adhere to the Coelbren Alphabet and is said to share distinct grammar markers with ancient Hebrew or Khassite, deriving as it does from Biblical Egypt aka The Fertile Crescent of Eden-myth and so on ad infinitium. And while this supposed Holy Grail of Ancient Britonic Language (the Coelbren Alphabet) accurately translates into pre-modern Welsh, can it really have been spoken with a Welsh accent?

The interesting thing here (for my ear) is akin to the way Spanish in South America isn't handicap'd by the 'lisp' of Modern European Spanish which was due to an impediment of one of the Kings of Modern Spain who they all loyally aped. As ancient history suggests that "Moses" (of fleeing-Egypt fame) had a speech impediment and/or was physically handicap'd around the mouth area, could this have been the progenitor of the affected Ll of modern Welsh. I'm reverse-extrapolating for no reason...

Personally, though I love this kinky concept of Wales (the Cardiff/Glamorgan region in particular) being the Real Historical Centre of Ancient Briton prior to the Romans paying a scouting visit in BC50, I can't resolve the glaring distinction between the two languages as we currently hear them. I would love to hear a reconstruction of this ancient 'root' language if that is what it is, are there any researchers out there working on such a project?
