The origin of the Slavs

Instead of the preface


The origin of the Slavs. This phrase itself causes more questions than answers at once.



S.V. Ivanov "Housing of the Eastern Slavs"


Soviet archeologist P. N. Tretyakov wrote:
«History ancient Slavs in the coverage of archaeological materials - this is a field of hypotheses, usually short-lived, constantly causing numerous doubts. "


Today, even after the global work carried out by archaeologists, many works of linguists, studies on toponymy, this question remains open. The fact is that we practically have no written sources on the early history of the Proto-Slavs, and this is the stumbling block of all further reasoning. The basis of this work are key research on this topic.

Entry


At the end of the 6th century, new enemies appeared on the Danube border that hit the Byzantine state.

These were the peoples about whom the ancient and Byzantine authors had already heard, but now they became their restless neighbors, leading constant hostilities and carrying out devastating attacks on the empire.

How could the new tribes that appeared on the northern border not only compete with the military forces of the most powerful country in Europe for a long time, but also seize its lands?

How could these, yesterday unknown or little-known people of the Roman world, occupy such vast territories? What strengths and capabilities did they have, how and by whom were they involved in the global migration of peoples, how did their culture develop?

We are talking about the ancestors of the Slavs, who settled in the vast space of central, northeastern and southern Europe.

And if the fighting and battles of the Slavs VI-VII centuries. If we know well enough from written sources that have come down to us, the archaeological sites give us important information that significantly complements the picture, helps us understand many points of the early Slavic history.

The clash or cooperation of the Slavs with the nearby nations: the Byzantine Empire, the Germanic tribes and, of course, the nomads of the Eurasian plain enriched their military experience and military arsenal.

The Slavs and their military affairs are little known to the general public; for a long time they were in the shadow of the Germanic peoples living in these areas, as well as the nomadic peoples living in the Subunavia.

Origin


The Kiev chronicler in the "ethnographic" part of the "Tale of Temporary Years" wrote:
“After a long time, the Slavs sat down on the Danube, where the land is now Hungarian and Bulgarian. From those Slavs, the Slavs dispersed on the ground and were called by their names from the places they sat down on. So some came and sat on the river by the name of Morava and were called Morava, while others called themselves Czechs. And here are the same Slavs: white Croats, and Serbs, and Khorutane. When the Volokhs attacked the Slavs of the Danube, and settled among them, and oppressed them, these Slavs came and sat on the Vistula and were called Lyakhs, and the Poles went from those Lyakhs, others were Lyutichi, others were Mazovshans, others were Pomorians. ”


For a long time, this chronicle story was considered decisive in the picture of the settlement of Slavic tribes, today, on the basis of archaeological data, toponymy, but especially philology, the ancestral source of the Slavs is considered to be the Vistula River Basin in Poland.

Slavic language belongs to the Indo-European language family. The question of the original homeland of Indo-Europeans remains open. The Anatolian, Greek, Armenian, Indo-Iranian and Thracian languages ​​independently emerged from the Proto-Indo-European language, while the Italic, Celtic, Slavic, Balt and Germanic languages ​​did not exist. They constituted a single commonality of the ancient European language, and their separation took place in the course of settlement throughout Europe.

There is a debate in the literature about whether the Balto-Slavic language community was originally or whether there were long contacts between the ancestors of the Slavs and the Balts, which affected the closeness of languages. Recent studies suggest that, firstly, the Proto-Slavs had contacts only with the Western Balts (the ancestors of the Prussians), secondly, they initially had contacts with the Proto-Germanic tribes, in particular, with the ancestors of the Angles and Saxons, which is fixed in the last words . These contacts could take place only on the territory of modern Poland, which confirms the localization of the early Proto-Slavs in the Vistula-Oder interfluve.

This territory was their European homeland.

First historical evidence


For the first time messages about Venda or Slavs appear on the pages of Roman manuscripts at the beginning of our millennium. So, Guy Pliny the Elder (23 / 24 — 79 AD) wrote that Sarmatians and Veneti lived among other peoples in Eastern Europe. Claudius Ptolemy (died 178 AD) pointed out the bay, calling it Venedi, now, presumably Gdansk Bay in Poland, he also writes about the mountains of Veneda, possibly the Carpathians. But Tacitus [Gaius Cornelius Tacitus] (50-e - 120 AD) argues as follows:
“I don’t know whether to include singers [Germanic tribe], Wends and Fenns to Germans or Sarmatians ... Wenty adopted many of their morals, because for the sake of robbery they scour the forests and mountains, which only exist between singers and Fenns. However, they can rather be counted among the Germans, because they build houses for themselves, carry shields and move on foot, and moreover with great speed; all this dissociates them from the Sarmatians, who spend their whole lives in a cart and on a horse. ” [Tacit.G.46].

The early name of the Slavs


As we have said, the ancient authors, like the ancient peoples, at the turn of the millennium, the ancestors of the Slavs called "Weeds". Many researchers believe that this term in antiquity defined not only the Slavs, but all the tribes of the Slavic-Balt language group, since this land was distant for the Greeks and the Romans and information about it was cursive, and often simply fabulous.

This word is preserved in Finnish and German, and today they are called Luga sorbs or Western Slavs - Wendel or Wende. Where did it come from?

Perhaps, according to some researchers, it was the self-name of some of the first tribal groups moving from the Vistula River basin to the west and north, to the Germanic area, and, accordingly, Finnish tribes.

Other authors believe that this was the name of a non-Slavic tribe, as described below.

K VI century. The “Wends” were clearly located in the north of Central Europe, in the west they went beyond the borders of the Oder, and in the east - to the right bank of the Vistula.

Actually the name "Slavs" appears in sources in the VI century. Jordan and Procopius, when both authors could really get acquainted with representatives of this people. Procopius of Caesarea, being the secretary of the commander Belisarius, more than once he observed and described the actions of the Slav warriors.

There is also an opinion that if the word „Veneda-Veneti“ was colloquial, then „Sklavinos“ or „Slavs“ had a book origin, such as, for example, the term „dew“.

There is no exact answer as to where this name came from. Until the nineteenth century. it was believed to be derived from the word "glory" (gloriosi). Another version, which also had until the nineteenth century, implied a connection between the word "Slav" and the "slave", a term identical in many European languages.

Modern theories suggest two solutions to this issue. The first links it with the places of the original stay of the Slavs, people living along rivers. Making it from the word "flow, water flows", hence: the river Sluya, Slavnitsa, Stawa, Stawica.

The overwhelming majority of researchers are followers of another theory; they believe that the ethnonym comes from "the word" - verbosi: speak, "speak clearly", "people who speak clearly", unlike "Germans" - cannot speak, dumb.

We meet him in the names of the tribes and modern peoples: Slovenia Novgorod (Ancient Russia), Slovaks (Slovakia), Slovenes (Slovenia and other Balkan countries), Kashubian Slovinians (Poland).

Early Slavs and Celts


In the south of the Vistula-Oder interfluve, the ancient Slavs (Przeworskaya archaeological culture) had the first contacts with the Celts who migrated to these territories.

The Celts by this time reached great heights in the development of material culture, which was reflected in the archaeological culture of Lathen (the settlement of La Ten Switzerland - La Tène). The Celtic society of Europe of this time can be defined as “heroic”, with the cult of leaders and heroes, squads and the militarization of all life, consisting of clans grouped into tribes.

The Celts made an outstanding contribution to the history of metallurgy in Europe: archeologists discovered whole forge industrial complexes.

They owned the technology of welding, hardening, made a great contribution to the production of iron tools, and, of course, weapons. A significant fact of the development of Celtic society is the process of urbanization, by the way, archaeologists associate with it a new and most important moment: from the middle of the second century. BC e. no military equipment is recorded in Celtic burials.

We know the large Celtic cities of Alesia (97 ha), Bibrakt (135 ha) and Hergovia (Clermont) (75 ha) and others.

Society moves to a new stage, in conditions of accumulation of wealth, when weapons lose their symbolic significance. It was during this period that one of the waves of Celtic migration reached the upper reaches of the Vistula in Central Europe in the 2nd century. BC e., from this moment began the interaction of the early Slavs and the Celts. From this period, the Przeworsk archaeological culture began to take shape.

Przeworsk archeological culture is associated with the early Slavs, although on its territory there are signs of habitat of both the Celts and the Germans. Monuments of archeology give great material about the development of material culture, artifacts indicate the origin of military affairs among the Slavs at the turn of the millennia.

An important factor in the interaction was the process of influence of the Celts, who are at a higher level of development, on the spiritual culture of the Slavs, which was reflected in religious buildings and burial rites. At least, what can be judged today is very likely. In particular, in the construction of a later period of the pagan temple of the Western Slavs in Arkona, on the island of Rugen, historians find features of Celtic religious buildings. But if the weapons disappear in the graves of the Celts of central Europe, then on the periphery of the Celtic world it remains, which is perfectly understandable in the framework of military expansion. And the same rite began to use the Slavs.

The participation of the Celts in the formation of Przeworsk culture led to the first major division in the history of the Slavs: in the southern (middle Europe) and northern (Powyslje). The Celtic movement in Central Europe, quite possibly accompanied by military expansion in the Vistula region, forced some of the local tribes to start moving to the Dnieper region. They go from the zone of the Vistula and Volyn to the zone of the upper Dniester and especially in the Middle Dnieper region. This movement, in turn, caused the outflow of the Baltic tribes living here (Zarubinskaya archaeological culture) to the north and east.

Although some archaeologists associate Zarubinsk culture with the Slavs.

It was during this period that the western neighbors of the ancient Slavs began to call them "Veneta". And here, too, there is a Celtic trace.

One of the hypotheses is based on the fact that the ethnonym Veneti was the self-designation of the Celtic tribes who lived in Powyslje, ​​but when confronted with the Germans at the beginning of our era, they retreated to the lands of the north-east and southeast of modern Poland, where they conquered the Proto-Slavs and gave them their name: "Wends" or "Veneta".

Other authors believe that this was the name of a non-Slavic tribe that migrated to the south, and the neighbors began to call this name the ancestors of the Slavs who remained here.

Armament of the Slavs in the early period


Tacitus, as we see, told us a little, but this information is invaluable, since we are talking primarily about the Slavs as a settled people who live not as Sarmatians in carts, but build houses, which is confirmed by archaeological data, and that their weapons are similar to their western neighbors.

The Slavs, like most of the tribes that lived in the forest-steppe zone and entered the path of historical development, had spears as the main type of weaponry, which, of course, owes its origin to sharp-edged sticks. Given the early contacts with the Celts, whose society was at a higher stage of material development, the influence in armaments is obvious here. It was even reflected in the burial rite, when weapons or any piercing and cutting tools were damaged. So did the Celts during the burial of male warriors.

Diodorus of Sicily, (80-20 biennium BC) wrote:
“... they [the Celts. - VE] they fight with a long sword, which they wear, hanging on an iron or copper chain to the right thigh ... In front of themselves they expose spears, which are called “lankii”, with iron tips of one elbow (45 cm) and more, and the width is a little less than dipalesta (15,5 cm). " [Diodorus Siculus „Bibliotheca Historica“ V. 30.3., V.30.4.]

In the period of early contacts with the Celts, the Slavs actively use Celtic long and narrow spearheads with well-marked edges.

Later, in the early Roman period, the Slavic copies had tips with a short leaf blade, and in the late Roman era, they had a short diamond-shaped or leaf-shaped tip, with an edge extending into a part of the sleeve.

Very early, which is unusual for a forest-steppe zone, the Slavs began to use spurs, an attribute of ammunition, which Iranian-speaking steppe horsemen of Eastern Europe did not have at that time. In the burial grounds of Przeworskaya culture, not only spearheads are found, but also spurs. Thus, the ancestors of the Slavs began early enough to use horses in combat. Perhaps it was only a warrior's delivery vehicle, as happened with many other forest peoples, for example, later Scandinavians. But the presence of spurs, which had a tetrahedral or cylindrical spike, most likely speaks of the need to control the horse and most likely during a horse attack.

Tacitus wrote that the Slavs used a shield; from archaeological finds we know that the umbons of these shields were tapered with a long spike or with a cylindrical neck, ending with a hollow spike. What sizes or parameters were shields, we can only assume, perhaps they were the same as those of neighboring nations. Probably, they were made of improvised material - wood, probably, they were covered with leather for reliability, and the umbron was attached to them. Shield handle fastened riveted through. In umbonah, the influence not only of the Celts, but also of the ancient Germans is easily visible, and through them the influence of the Romans in terms of material culture spread to the entire barbaric world of Europe.

The Slavs, as it can be supposed, have not yet reached that stage of metal processing, when it would ensure the mass production of labor tools or high-tech weapons. They are extremely rare, but used swords and Saxons.

Swords, of course, were incredibly expensive weapons, and the presence of Saxon in arms of the early Slavs again tells us about the German influence. This is a wide single-edged sword with the same production technology as the sword.

We have reached several samples of expensive scabbards or their fastenings. They testify to the high status of their owners. Of particular interest are scab shears from the sword from the Grinev burial ground (Ukrainian Griniv), a village in the Pustomytovsky district of the Lviv region of Ukraine (Upper Dniester).

The front side is decorated with a cast bronze lining depicting different scenes: a bear with a loot, a griffin, two figures, perhaps a hero and a goddess, and, finally, a horseman with a small shield and a spear. Such a decoration of weapons associated with the Celtic, and possibly with the Roman influence, and was common in Central Europe in the last century BC. er

According to archaeological sources, we cannot say that the Proto-Slavs used bows and arrows in the war or their arrows were without metal tips. Arrowheads are almost never found in the graves of this era. Neighboring Germanic and Celtic peoples poorly used these weapons, and the influence of nomadic cultures was felt only on the south-eastern border of the settlement of the early Slavs.

      Horror.
      Quote: E. Vashchenko, Ph.D.
      Until the nineteenth century. consideredаthat it comes from the wordаwa ”(gloriosi). Another version, which was also used up to the XNUMXth century, suggested the connection of the word “Slav” with “slave”, a term identical in many European languages.

      Does this write exactly the candidate of science? By whom consideredАsmiling? Slavs - a word later. In the annals: Slovene, Slovenian language, Slovene letter. How could it come from the wordаwa. "It is a pity that the author is not aware of the etymology of the mentioned word" slave "from European languages. It came from the Greek word" σκλάβος "(" Sklavos ") -" slave. "Greeks write about Slavs:" ... being freedom-loving, they are in no way inclined either to become slaves or to obey, especially in their own land "- the Strategicon of Mauritius, published by subordinate VV Kuchma. St. Petersburg, 2004, p. 189. This is the 6th century.

      It’s not surprising that this the author, having taken up the topic, is not at all familiar with the works of at least basic scientists. The author weaved the Przeworsk archaeological culture (II century BC - IV century), moved to the great Celts, Germans and backward wild Slavs. And made us happy with artistic speculation about this.
      Real scientists with answers about the origin of the Slavs are all right. The Slavs stood out from the general Indo-European massif at the turn of the II – III millennium BC. The first Slavic culture is Tshinetskaya (XIX-XI centuries BC). This is claimed, for example, by an archaeologist, academician Rybakov B.A. He also explains why Tshinetskaya is a purely Slavic culture, and not a Baltic-Slavic one.

      PS. The author is amazing. Previously, he wrote an article on the law on law in Russia of the Rurikovich. In the discussion, it turned out that, while discussing Old Russian law, he did not read the “Russian Truth”, which they study at school. I was shocked. We Soviet village schoolchildren read it in the lessons in the original. At first I thought that in order to fool modern schoolchildren, the Ministry of Education and Science threw a lot from the program, including even basic knowledge. Therefore, they say, now historians are like that. Helped to understand. It turned out that both the “Russian Truth” and other documents on Russian law are present in the current “Approximate basic educational program of basic general education”, and in the “Concept of a new educational-methodical complex on Russian history”. This is the author. Such a historian.

        It is unlikely that you have ever read Russian Truth in the "original" and even in history lessons at school! In the best case, in the translation (presentation) of Likhachev as edited by Shakhmatov! So do not tell my claws !!!
        Now about the origin of the word Slaven! The author gives all four versions of the history of the etymology of this word! Did you mention two? And then sprinkle poison, so catch a quote from Edward!
        . The vast majority of researchers are followers of a different theory, they believe that the ethnonym comes from the “word” - verbosi: speak, “speak clearly”, “people who speak clearly”, unlike “Germans” - cannot speak, dumb.

        So a person who read Russian truth in school in the original (without publics, without breaks and Arabic tsyfer) simply could not read the article!
        Can hang out in ancient Greek! You threw a couple of points there !!!
        Now, about the opportunist Rybakov, the father of the Russian archaeological site was mistaken more than once or twice, for which he was always criticized by contemporaries and followers!
        By the way, this is his pearl "On the 1500th anniversary of the city of Kiev" right on the day of the Great October Resolution! This is his premise plows Samsonov and followers of the great ukrov!
        By the way, modern researchers consider Chernyakhov’s culture German!

          Great, Vladislav, thanks, I won't even add anything. Is that for nothing you Rybakov so tough. A person could be mistaken; his disciples correct him, develop and correct his concepts. The impetus that he gave to the development of historical science, despite the fallacy of some of his conclusions, is in my opinion difficult to overestimate.

            Good day Michael! With all due respect to the work of Rybakov, his later research led our science into a classic dead end! When archaeological finds began to grind to political realities .....
            For example, where did the Slavs-arias of Mr. Samsonov come from? Due to the trend of late Soviet historical science, destroy Norman theory! Moreover, in the 60s, Rybakov had already won the debate on this issue, but victory was needed on all fronts! In this connection, a “myth” was created about Scythians-plowmen, royal Scythians, etc. In fact, from the filing of the academician, the marker of Slavic culture was hung as a label on the Indo-European ethnic group! A similar debate took place between the Poles and the Germans. Some drowned the Germans at the mouth of the Elbe, others Slavs in the swamps of Pripyat. So Rybakov, Kiev needs a lot of summer - catch 1500 years! It’s like my hometown to calculate anniversary dates not from the day the dam was commissioned, but from the moment an ancient person wrote a cave-rock drawing! People lived 20 years ago - they even painted on the rocks!

            And the fact that the drawings were supposedly made by the ancestors of the Finno-Ugric peoples who had nothing to do with the emergence of the city is a voluminous question but one that has a solution!
            So here, there is a need to tie Chernyakhov culture to the Slavs - we knit. The party said to refute the Norman attempts, here is Kiy and sister Lybad, plus six hundred years to the Slavs! It is from these discrepancies that our troubles in the person of the Falk-Histoics climb! For example, below I am reproached for the existence of slavery among the Rus, although the conversation is about the Slavs! By the way, according to Konstantin Bogryanorodny, the Rus of those Slavs sold into slavery! So plus or minus 300 children, these are trifles! Here you have a reason to fill the gap in the history of the Slavs with a super ethnic group or shovels for ukrov! They still dig Pont !!!
            Yours!

              You know, Vladislav, I am ready to agree with much of what you wrote. Rybakov worked at a time when politics shamelessly invaded science and, unfortunately, this affected his work. But I see the origins of the spread of pseudo-historical contagion not in his writings - the supporters of these views for the most part did not read them, and many do not even know who this is.
              Here is another. Personally, I see two main prerequisites for the spread of this obscurantism in our country.
              The first is the high quality of secondary education in the USSR. In terms of history, we learned some knowledge from the school bench and learned certain symbolic names of historical figures - both of the Ancient World and the Middle Ages, both of Europe and Russia. But there is also the other side of the coin: we got these knowledge in school up to the eighth grade and at the corresponding “teenage” level. Have you noticed that, although the pseudo-historical attack is conducted on all periods of our history, up to the twentieth century, it has the greatest success in the “ancient” direction? Why? Due to remoteness in time? Of course not. Of course, this is due to the fact that these periods of history in the school were studied and, accordingly, taught in a simplified version. With textbooks for 4 - 7 classes to fight easier.
              The second is the absence in the USSR of a significant body of popular science historical literature. With a significant number of novelists writing on historical topics, popular science sources were extremely rare. Interest in history fueled fiction (of course, quality), and no one was in a hurry to satisfy it. Who read, for example, V.L.Yanin in the USSR "I sent you birch bark"? But this book is sustained precisely in the popular science style, and after reading it all Fomenko’s inventions about Novgorod would seem to any person a painful delusion. But there were very few such books. And when the first “works” of Fomenko, Petukhov, etc. appeared, sustained precisely in the popular science format, this lacuna was filled precisely with their eruptions.
              As a result, it turned out that most people in the country had basic knowledge of history, there was interest in it, but no one was in a hurry to satisfy him at a normal level. This is precisely what the folkhistorics have used and still use.
              And the “pioneer” of this trend can be called, rather, L.N.Gumilyov. The success of his work, certainly not without interest, including from a scientific point of view, showed the people to crave serious information and demonstrated the ability to make money on it. I do not attribute Gumilyov himself to freaks from science, but he, or rather not he, was the pioneer of this genre, but the publisher, who was the first to publish his works in large numbers, certainly, the rest followed in his footsteps, without limiting his imagination to any scientific frameworks.
              I propose to stop the case against Rybakov "for his services to historical science," and against Gumilyov to refuse to initiate "for lack of corpus delicti" (no subjective side). The rest - on the kukan and to the wall. smile

Or cling to Likhachev, well, for good reason in the Tale of Bygone Years - a mythical creature ahead of the engine! And Kostomarov with his kobyaks and Russian Truth does not climb into any gates? May attack Klyuchesvsky, or fight with Karamzin wassat

                    In the morning I’ll cheer up a little! Kukan is a specific place - a mountain three kilometers from the Lower Seryogs, so that the New Yearspeople specifically stuck !!! It’s possible to break legs back and forth on a windbreak! We will organize sports races "new history"! We will throw a duck about places of pure power, we will attract isoterics (they have been lining it for a long time), Slavophiles shove the mulch about the treasure with letters, the neopagans about the Russian temple, and the main prize is “a letter to the most honest nonsense from history”! The main thing is to feed this brethren tightly and drink to Drebodan! And there is a start of 6 km on a full stomach and with flooded eyes, no one is far away! And even if someone runs, runs up or crawls, then the mind will have a clear and bright. From my own experience I know any cross nonsense kicks out notably! A minimum of “brethren” will think about how the Arians drove back and forth across Eurasia!

          The VO format is a popular science article with a military bias, so I didn’t bring down the whole range of opinions on the historiography of the question to the reader; In the work of V.V. Sedov, all the latest historiography and its analysis.
          The same can be said of the enumeration of all archaeological cultures that to one degree or another associated with the Slavs. It was not for nothing that I made a quote from P.N. Tretyakov.
          Gag in my text is not - in the source - footnotes on historiography and sources.

            In the work of V.V. Sedov’s entire recent historiography and its analysis.
            As I understand it, the works at the bottom of your article you bring solely for beauty, because you do not read them. Otherwise, on the topic, you would include another work by Sedov - “The Origin and Early History of the Slavs”. In it, he claims (like the Netherlands) that during the second millennium BC there was a single Baltic Slavic language, and Slavic stood out at the turn of the XNUMXst and XNUMXnd millennia "or earlier". It also contradicts everything that you wrote above.

              Nicholas,
              if you carefully read my article, then about the Baltic Orthodox community - and I wrote everything about a different vision.
              If Sedov, in his earlier work, was of the same opinion, in a later work, he indicated that there was both. Read this 2005 work of the year.
              By the way, I didn’t write anything about the language anywhere, when it stood out, etc., as there are many disputes in this regard in historiography and I understood in advance that the “nachoots” would start their bagpipes.
              However, this dispute does not make sense.
              The article is devoted to armament - what we know about it for early history. This is a VO format.
              Once again: write articles and good luck!

                The Slavs, as it can be supposed, have not yet reached that stage of metal processing, when it would ensure the mass production of labor tools or high-tech weapons. They are extremely rare, but used swords and Saxons.

After all, modern Italians are Syrian peasants, longbards and Latins, modern Greeks are a mixture of southern Slavs and Albanians (by the way they are very offended when they are called Greeks, only Elins), Romanians, a mixture of all stripes living in the Roman Empire, etc.

                      There were continuous incest. They study a bunch of genetic diseases and anomalies. Plus, they kept accurate records of weddings and deaths. So, genetics is confirmed by church bookkeeping.

                      For example, the Finns (60% N1c1) speak their native Finnish, and the Yakuts (95% N1с1) speak another Turkic, the reason is the cultural and linguistic assimilation of the Yakuts by the Mongols.

                      Absolutely the same thing with the inhabitants of the British Isles, who on 80% consist of Erbins / Celts (R1b), but do not speak their native Gel, but German German-Saxon mixed with Norman (the language of the conquerors).

                      Cultural linguistic assimilation, however.

I myself somehow act more honestly - not only criticizing, but also giving this opportunity to others in relation to myself. So the moral right to "disassemble" the hypothetical creation of Nicholas S. I have and with pleasure, on occasion, I will use it.

    I apologize for getting into the dispute of knowledgeable people, but I had a question:
    Are there Slavic sources of the 6th century and earlier?
    And it turns out that the Slavs were sufficiently developed to make the goat of Byzantium the goat, but not sufficiently developed to have a written language and describe their achievements. How did their neighbors do it.

          People with a brain affected by pseudo-patriotism, but still somehow alive - yes, as a rule, they try not to answer.
          If you start answering, you will have to admit that Slavs didn’t have their own written language even before the times of Cyril and Methodius, which contradicts their conception of a ten-thousand-year and more Slavic history. How, Russ, Slavs, arias, the founders of all states, the builders of all cities, the light of civilization and the only engine of progress, and suddenly they learned to write only a thousand years ago, and not just themselves, but simply from the Greeks (Bulgarians)! wassat
          People with a brain who died in an unequal struggle with pseudoscientific fabrications of various freaks are kept on a Veles book, on runes, etc. - this is generally a clinical case and is not subject to correction - only a lobotomy. smile
          In fact, it should be recognized that Slavs, as an ethnos, are historically very young, although they certainly originate genetically from the same first people as the rest. Both you and me and the same Operator or another pseudo-patriot with a nationalist bias - we all have ancestors who lived both 100 and 200 a million years ago and more, as the Finno-Ugrians and Celts and Mongols have them. But the ethnos itself, to which we and our ancestors belonged was formed relatively recently, is it good or bad.

          Greetings, Vladimir! In a series of articles by Mikhail, we discussed this topic. Therefore, here I repeat my personal opinion.
          There is a well-established school, the postulate of the enlightenment of the Slavs by Cyril and Methodius (the Glagolitic and Cyrillic alphabet by their students), during Christianization. There is some information about traits and cuts, about runes. But the general opinion - they did not post there was no written language. USE.
          It is beneficial to everyone. Academicians. Churches. "West", politicians and in general almost everyone :))
          The only one who suffers from this is Truth. Everyone doesn’t give a damn about the internal respect of the Russian peoples. It is the Greeks who can be proud that their story is based on myths, and if Schlimman believed in the myth of Troy, simply believed and found it, he proved the fact. Until we have our own historical hero, we will be in F ..., at a historical dump. Everyone will dig us.
          In the annals of Nestor it is written that Oleg, after the conquest of Constantinople, concluded a WRITTEN agreement on paying tribute in TWO! languages. It is already a fact that the Russians are Varangians about the letter, and all the Novgorod boyars, to whom the ancient path from the Varangians to the Greeks ran. Tell me, how did they otherwise deal with merchants from Constantinople? The way was to Rurik by the way. The lodges are flat-bottomed, adapted for walking precisely along rivers and drags! or not a fact?
          If there is no written language, why did Oleg have to conclude a tribute agreement in a foreign (not Slavic, Russian) second foreign language?
          Well, if about the latest finds of birch bark letters in Novgorod. If there, after 100 years after Cyril and Methodius, the children wrote notes, what is the speed of spreading letters, letters, in ancient Russia, where did you get so many teachers from? to the entire vast territory. In the 20 century, there was no 100% literacy, but here, did you come up with all the Russians and immediately began to write Cyrillic letters?
          Or maybe there was Russian writing? Especially when you consider that the Russian language itself is one of the most ancient and complex in its history of development and structure. The name of the letters from the alphabet is painful: Az God I Know Verbs Good Is There Belly Earth Earth Like I (Y - Truth) ... are not consistent with the simple Christian spelling of the alphabet for the translation of the New and Old Testament books. Too abstruse and harmonized by ancient pagan beliefs.
          I don’t want to get any criticism, thanks for that! %)

            [Maybe Russian writing was? ... Yes, you can’t even put a question mark here .. Cyril. 860 ... and I got to Korsun ... you’ll find that Gospel and Psalter, written in Russian letters ... and you’ll have a person who spoke that conversation, and talked with him, and accept the power of speech, applying the difference between the letters of the vowel and consonant and making prayer to God, he soon began to honor and say, and he praised him ... ". Life of Constantine" .. Nothing diminished and did not add ... So most likely the Gospel and the psalter were written in the Glagolitic alphabet

      Dear Vladimir,
      there are no written sources, earlier all the more.
      Slavic alphabet appeared much later.
      By the way, as well as not many other nations who did

        That is, the Slavs were unable to come up with their own written language,
        and just waited for two monks to appear with the alphabet ...
        Somehow it does not fit with the entire subsequent history of the Slavs.

          Vladimir,
          I would not put the question. The need for writing appears at a certain stage in the development of society. In a generic society living in subsistence farming, about what and where to write?
          two monks
          they gave impetus to the development of writing, and then it developed, again within the framework of the needs of certain Slavic states.

              Read Tacitus, he has interesting moments about the Gali tribes! Especially about pants and galls. In order to present their Wishlist to tell about their exploits, it was enough to find a birch and get a genital reproductive organ on it! If you want for centuries, climb a rock and paint with blood and iron pyrites! An example from the Serga River is given above. Deja vu - a neighbor’s garage and three universal letters! It’s interesting, but if at school they taught to read and write, then! Too lazy to go take pictures of the garage.
              The word "birch" also came to our time. For example, the Shingar idol is over 10 years old! Did his master know how to read, definitely - no! Was the ancient hunter able to leave graffiti on the rock Pisanitsa on the Serga River? The answer is no! But seeing a figure with a deer stricken in the heart and a hunter, after thousands of years we understand "I got you a deer" !!! There are other examples of the existence of empires, but without traditional writing in our understanding. Yes, I'm about the Incas! So many bend over Rome, literate people! The most interesting is even possible to draw a casuistic conclusion! Celts, Goths, Vandals, Huns, Slavs - Rome battled both the first and the second being illiterate! But as soon as they learned to read and write, other mediocrity appeared on the arena, who had already torn enlightened Celts, Goths, vandals, Huns, etc.! Oh no wonder they say "I do not want to study - I want to get married" !!! laughing

                I understand your logic, but here I am trying to imagine how this could be in real life.
                Well, imagine:
                Near the "literate" Rome live a bunch of tribes. They constantly communicate and trade - well, not all the time they fought among themselves.
                Illiterate people see that literate people have the opportunity to make lists of objects (slaves, cities ...), send detailed messages to their commanders (rulers), write praises to rulers (and any authorities) ... etc.
                And no one had a desire to adopt writing ?!
                Let not create your own. Let’s just learn how to neighbor.
                No one in hundreds of years of life side by side?

                In my opinion, this is contrary to human nature. If people were so curious, we would never get to computers.

                  The fact is that we put our labels on our ancestors! By the way, I throw the thesis.
                  If the society has developed a culture of oral creativity, oral transmission of information (word for word), oral reckoning, etc.! And whether writing is needed above the level of "Here you were Vasya and finished the deer," can Vasya and the deer draw a dot!
                  In addition, to trade with Rome, you still need to break through to its borders! As there from the Roman anecdotes “Galia in toga”, “Galia in pants”, “Galia without pants”. In principle, the farther from Rome, the worse! But a century later the Visigoths will come, then the Franks and long live the equal rights - the advanced feudal system - all in trousers, but where are the Gauls?

                    If we are talking about two villages, then oral transmission is possible and covers all cultural needs.
                    But if we are talking about the "Country of Cities" (Gardarika), then the mouth is free to transmit information. In addition, the amount of distortion during repeated transmission will deprive this oral creativity of meaning.

                    Which, in fact, happened in the history of mankind.

                    Not for nothing Slavs are sometimes called invisible people. In archaeological terms, the "country of cities" has not yet been found possible! Take an interest in the dates of the formation of cities in the territory of the Slavs! You will find Great Moravia, and now don’t be too lazy to carefully read the article by Edward! And if you try to take into account it’s still ready, the Huns, Avars, Kagaturs and others (irritants) who tritely decided to arrange a great migration of peoples!

    There are no reliable sources, but there are more works of art than historical ones. I am not a historian, but in terms of logic, I like Gumilyov, who makes an in-depth analysis of these sources, climate change and, accordingly, habitat, proves that many facts in these primary sources are fictitious.

    . The origin of the Slavs. This phrase itself immediately raises more questions than answers ..

    The other day I visited Denisova Cave.
    In 2008, they discovered the last phalanx of the little finger belonging to the girl, aged 7 to 12 years. It was also determined that the girl had dark skin and had brown eyes. The age of the remains is about 48-50 thousand years. DNA analysis of these samples showed that this subspecies of people is a special branch of the human race, different from modern people and Neanderthals. This subspecies was given the name - Denisov man.
    Further excavations showed that Denisovans lived here long before the girl was found. The most ancient remains discovered here are about 110 thousand years old. Between these two groups, a period of approximately 65 thousand years passed.
    According to the latest scientists, Denisov’s girl only 1,2% of DNA corresponds to modern people. 38,6% of its DNA corresponds to Neanderthals and the majority - 42,3% to Denisovans. Suggested that her father had ancestors - Neanderthalswhich are about 20 thousand years before his birth moved to these places from Europe. A genetic link has been discovered with residents of the Vindiya cave, located in Croatia.

    Consequently - at present, DNA can easily determine the "origin of the Slavs". You can immediately remove questions and get an answer.

    σκλάβος began to mean slaves in the New Greek language.
    Even in Byzantine Greek, the Slavs were so simply called, and the word "slave" in Greek completely came from the name of the Slavs (in other languages ​​I definitely won’t take it into account for history). This comes from the German language (where the slave is also called sklawe right now), and this term also comes from the Roman Empire where the Slavs were called sklevens (there is an opinion that due to the lack of sound Ч in the Latin SK it meant the sound Ч, and the skeletons have an etymology from the Slavs self-name - Chloveni => Chloveki => People) generally in European languages ​​there is a real tendency to call slaves by the name of the Slavs. This is due to the fact that the Slavs acquired statehood quite late, and often they fell into slavery in Byzantium and the Germans, the first Slavic princes did not disdain themselves to sell them into slavery in Byzantium. In general, in almost all European languages ​​the name of slaves and Slavs is very similar.
    Greek
    slave -σκλάβος (sklávos)
    Slav - σλαβικό (slavikó)

    German
    Slave - Sklave
    Slav - Slaw

    French
    slave - esclave
    Slav - slave

    English
    slave - slave
    Slav - Slav

    Italian
    slave - schiavo (skiyavo)
    Slav - slavo

    Spanish
    slave - esclavo
    Slav - eslavo

    In general, I think it’s clear that there is a close relationship

    I could seem somewhat unfounded about the Byzantine Middle Greek language and decided that it would not be bad to give you a proof.
    And so here is a copy of a page from a good dictionary of the Greek language

    Greek lexicon of the Roman and Byzantine periods (from BC 146 to AD 1100) / Greek lexicon of the Roman and Byzantine periods (from 146 BC to 1100 AD)

    The dictionary is in English, but I think there should be no problems translating the words Slav, Slavic from English.
    The right words are underlined.

        Vladislav, there are other versions:
        The Russian word hut happened:
        - from the "Khatanga" - this is the northern larch. Strong piles for houses and a writing board were made from it .. The Scythian / Persian word "hut" means letter, khatanga means "to letter." And the hut remained with the Kazakhs, and the hutang with the Tajiks.
        - in Hungarian house- ház (criminal jargon-haz), in Tajik (well, Persian) -hona.

        If I'm not mistaken, the Romans had a practical reason - if in a tight formation to pull the sword to the left, then it rested with the hilt against the shield. The rest adopted this fashion, although they did not have such dense constructions. And then the gladius gave way to a length of spate and pulling it to the right became uncomfortable.

      I agree with you, at that time there could not be homogeneous tribes, everyone was constantly mixed up, some went into oblivion, some survived. And by the present period something had taken shape in the modern concept of nations and peoples.

        The clan and tribal system was called that because people lived by clans. Marriages between representatives of different tribes, of course, took place to be, but were hardly encouraged, rather they could be considered as an exception. The tribes lived at a decent distance from each other, in isolation, they rarely went to visit each other, for many the appearance of a stranger was an event and, rather, a bad one.
        So genetics can really help in trying to restore the course of events in ancient times.

      Why did Sacramasaks get such distribution in time and space?
      Are they less technologically advanced in production than double-edged weapons, the same spath, for example?
      The butt (the unfinished side of the blade from the tip to the handle) is always heavier than the cutting edge. Heavy scramasax attacks were more effective at breaking through armor.

        For Herrr. What kind of armor were at that time ??? The armor that had to be pierced appeared later. I don’t think that this somehow explains the spread of unilateral sharpening weapons among the BARBARS? Then why is the current kitchen knife sharpened on one side? I will answer - for safety, to save the limbs ...

              You can of course make a double-edged one from the same piece of metal with the same geometric parameters as that of one with one cutting edge. Only in this case, these same edges will be more blunt. In this case, we will surely get a rapier-type blade, and this is not quite a sword. In general, we will be able to chop them, but it will be possible to work on serious armor only in the gap. lol

                  Oh, it’s bad that I can’t draw here. Let's consider not the blade as such, but only a certain model of it (such as a rolled metal product) without a shank and a tip. With a constant mass of the workpiece and the finished product, their volume should also be unchanged. And this, in turn, means that with a strictly specified (unchanged) blade length, its cross-sectional area can in no way be different for any of its (cross-section) configurations. Then you can build a triangle and a rhombus of the same area yourself and compare them with each other. It turns out cool. A single-blade triangular-section blade is always sharper and thinner than a double-edged blade, provided that they are the same in width.smile

          To my regret, I have to admit that, as a stabbing tool, a sword is not very effective at all because of its hilt, which is extremely incapable of fully covering it with two hands (with the exception, perhaps, of its two-handed options) and, perhaps more importantly, a sword with a powerful stabbing blow with two hands is not at all easy to orient in space to the desired point (aim, so to speak). The handle of even a two-handed (very heavy, by the way) sword is too short for this operation. There are other weapons for stabbing. This is a spear. But the most effective tool for breaking through armor is klevets. It’s better to come up with, in my opinion, nothing is possible, because when using it, the usual chopping movement of the hand when exposed to armor is converted to a very powerful stabbing. It is simply perfect, but alas, they will not succeed in cutting it. Any specialized tool is more effective than any universal one. Alas...

      I may be wrong, but still I will hypothesize. Let's ask ourselves the question - what product (trophy) in those days was the most popular and expensive? The answer is obvious - a man (slave). Double-edged weapons, these weapons are designed to inflict the greatest possible defeat on the enemy and the probability of causing serious injuries is greater than “sax” - i.e. "product" may lose its "product attractiveness", and therefore lose in the "price". It is one thing to chop off a hand (you can’t sew it back), it’s another to strike with a blunt blade and break your arm (fractures were already treated in those days). I repeat, maybe I'm wrong, I'm not a historian ...

        Jordan and other Byzantine authors describing the Slavs repeatedly indicated that they did not have slaves. The prisoners were held in slavery for a certain period, after which they remained in the tribe or were released home. So in a Slavic society, the value of a slave was low! In central Russia, he had to be fed, watered, dressed! And this is not a handful of rice or dates per day! With the then technologies of slaughter farming, who else is that haemo!
        A sword is a status, well, a chance for survival. However, like the reservation.
        Not surprisingly, up to the 14th century, there were various types of battle axes and axes in use! The land army was armed with them even in the time of Peter!

          The lowest position was occupied by smerds, slaves, rank-and-file soldiers and purchases. For the murder of smerd, slave, and Ryadovich, a fine of 5 hryvnia was charged (Art. 22, 23 of Brief Truth).


          Smerd is a peasant, in this context a dependent peasant. If after his death he did not have unmarried daughters, the prince inherited the property of stink.
          Slavery could be whitewashed (full) or purchased. Obel is a lifelong slave. The feminine gender is robe.
          Purchase - a person who has taken a compartment is a debt, and has become a debt slave until he repays or fulfills the debt.
          Ryadovich - a person who entered the service and became dependent on the "row", that is, the contract.

          For Kote Pane Kohanka (Vladislav). How do you explain this? "The society of the pre-Slavs knows the property inequality. The fact is established by analyzing the pre-Slavic * bogb and * ubogb. If the former means" wealth ", the enrichment process itself, then the latter" is not only deprivation of wealth (poverty), but also deprivation given by God (wealth) right "[Ivanov, Toporov. 1978. P. 253]. It is likely that the circle of the last people was the clientele of a noble person, ultimately the one who is known as * gospodirn. Slavs among the Slavs can also be established by linguistic means. So, modern Russian " slave "(dr. Russian slave) goes back to the pre-Indo-European * orbho (child), the meaning of which is to fix the derogation of the rights of the youngest member of the family compared to the older ones; it is primarily the duty of work to be assigned to it; cf. arbaids (Gothic) , arabeit (d.s.). "

"

            In the last paragraph, you refuted your conclusion and supported my thesis! That is, a slave in early Slavic society is the youngest member of a family with reduced or reduced legal functions. So any slave in the proto-Slavic tribe received a circle of duties and rights, in exchange for "membership" in the tribe! That is, let the younger one but his own! This explains the existence after three centuries in the Russian truth of a large number of types of personal dependence: procurement, bonded, etc.).
            But this does not change the essence, a slave could have a wealthy man. Who had the opportunity to feed his tribe, family and labor! Given that in the Slavic society there is a process of disintegration of tribal relations, prerequisites are created that will be reflected in the early feudal society. But before him almost two centuries!

      I thought about it. It is possible (this is purely my hypothesis) that the scramasaks were not exclusively weapons, that is, were the subject, rather, of household use, used in everyday life - in work, in hunting, etc. In this case, the presence of a butt is simply necessary - a double-edged blade in the work is very inconvenient. Hence their mass character - they were not, like swords, an attribute of an exceptionally privileged class of warrior-leaders, but were, as they say, a familiar tool for any man.
      Personally, I don’t take an ax for a long time - I manage with my cleaver, which is lighter and more comfortable to wear. smile

        I saw a large Novgorod knife in the Museum. Total length up to 60cm. It looks like a huge companion. The blade is very curved, the handle is wicker (thrown winding)! So Sax is not a panacea. In addition, an ax was a universal means of attack and defense. Cheap and cheerful!

        About the "elegantly bypassed" - you gracefully noticed, but I have not yet bypassed - to be continued, as they say.
        Remind me, I write except jokes, where MI Artamonov raised this question? There was his article, it seems in "SA", it seems in 1968, I don’t remember, and the materials are far away, about Eastern Slavs and their colonization of Eastern Europe, there were original observations, but I don’t remember about it.
        And finally, my article is not devoted to the analysis of all concepts and archaeological cultures, one way or another connected with the Slavs, and the attempt to build less or less clearly and distinctly, the development chain of Slavs from the period of certain data in archeology and writing to the 8 century, something like . With an emphasis on military aspects where possible, until Przeworsk culture we know nothing about weapons from the Slavs - absolutely.
        Something like this.

    The Byzantine term "Slavs" is not an ethnonym. It meant status - peoples / tribes that did not have statehood, anyone's tributaries. The literal translation of this term is slaves. (Sclaveni from lat. Sclavus - slave). And this is the antonym of the imperial term "Franks", which appeared earlier and which is also not an ethnonym.
    In other words, such an ethnic group as the "Slavs" has never been and never is. This is a socio-political term.
    With the Franks, it’s at least clear why the Sicambras decided to take this designation for themselves as a self-name. But what’s in the head of those who, at the suggestion of Orbini, Shafarik and other “inventors of the Slavs”, consider themselves to be “Slavs”?

    Russophobia on the march: "At the end of the VI century, new enemies appeared on the Danube border, having fallen on the Byzantine state" am

    Then come the quotations of the ancient “historians” like the guano of the mammoth, who, after a long tinkering in the nose, thoughtfully pronounced that before the IV century there were no Slavs, and in the IV they suddenly became self-generated - out of dirt, certainly.

    After that, linguistics, the most accurate science on Earth (which is followed by mathematics, physics, etc.) with a howl that the origin of the basis of the Indo-European languages ​​is unknown to anyone (from Russophobes) is intertwined.

    There was no type of battle in the Tollensee river valley 2300 years ago between Erbins (future Celts) and Aryans (future Slavs). And the center for the distribution of Celtic culture, according to the strict conviction of the Russophobes, lies in Paryzh itself, on the extreme land in LandOn, and not in Hallstatt (literally stuffed with Aryan burials of the beginning of the first millennium BC and the oldest artifacts of "Celtic" culture). And nothing that the first postglacial inhabitants of Eastern Europe from the Danube to the Oder, the Sudeten, the North Caucasus, the Baltic States, Karelia and the Urals were Arias, and not Scythians, Sarmatians, Samoyeds, Chukhons and other shellups.

    For Russophobes, the main thing is to pour Slavs over with verbal diarrhea, and then even the grass does not grow.

    In this regard, I have a proposal to the VO administration - to remove from the site another Russophobic hack of a hack writer with a talking name Vashchenko and to ban for a month all those who have merged with him in Russophobic ecstasy.

      Then come the quotations of the ancient “historians” like the guano of the mammoth, who, after a long tinkering in the nose, thoughtfully pronounced that before the IV century there were no Slavs, and in the IV they suddenly became self-generated - out of dirt, certainly.

      Here is a typical example of Fomenko-Klesovskiy thinking: first, on some ancient garbage dumps, to find a bunch of old feces (if not, invent it yourself), gently slob them, pull them out for public viewing, and cover them with fresh ones, increasing the total fatality a bunch of their collective creativity to the maximum size.

      I am joining! According to the author, it turns out that the Slavs are a mishmash of Celts, Balts and Germans, mixed up at the junction of ranges and running from and fro "from beer to fist". The descendants of the Aryans have many names, these are Scythians (by gender / tribe) including Scythian and Slaven, the founders of the well-known city on the river. Volkhov / Mutnaya), and the Slavs - glorifying the Gods (and not feeding them sacrificial meat, like Scandans and Germans), and Slovene (Speaking with each other, unlike the Germans), and many others. But no, the author managed to stick the main superethnos of Eurasia into the marshes of Hanging. Defamation is this.

        The self-name of the Slavs is Slovene from the "word" (in the sense of speaking the same language). Slavs - this is the standard Moscow pronunciation of the XIX century with the replacement of "o" by "a".

        The composition of modern ethnic groups with a predominance of descendants of the Aryans (50 and more than percent of the carriers of the haplogroup R1a) includes Russians (including Little Russians and Belarusians), Poles, Slovaks, Tajiks, Pashtuns and Kyrgyz.

        In the composition of the remaining modern ethnic groups, the descendants of the Aryans have a share of less than 50% - Czechs, Bulgarians, Serbs, Croats, Bosnians, Slovenes, Macedonians, Scandinavians, Germans, Turks, Persians, Indians, Tatars, Tuvans and Uighurs.

        Jews comprise 8% of the descendants of the Mitannian Aryans (concentrated mainly in the tribe of Levi and the descendants of the prophet Moses), Arabs of the Arabian Peninsula - 5% (among the tribal leaders and descendants of the prophet Muhammad).

        The Scythians included about 20% of the descendants of the Avestan Aryans (the rest were northern Semites of Central Asia), the Sarmatians included about 10% of the Rigvedan Aryans (the rest were Asian Celts and other residents of Central Asia).

THIS IS SARCASM about your idiotic cheers-patriotism from illiteracy. You made a mistake with the topic. Here, people discuss history, not politics. And each of them, including the author, has the right to an opinion which is confirmed not by “chants,” but by arguments. My surname is not RUSSIAN, but I do not identify myself as Russian by the last name that came from the nickname of my ancestors of Zaporizhzhya Cossacks, but because I consider the culture of my ancestors RUSSIAN and live according to the rules of this culture (culture is defined here as a way of life) .

          For Andrey. If you studied the history of the Zaporizhzhya Sich, you should know that among the Cossacks there were people of different ethnic groups - Slavs (Russians, Poles, Serbs, etc.), Tatars, Turks, Jews, even read somewhere that there was an Englishman and a Frenchman . Not to mention the fact that on their return the Cossacks brought with them women of different nationalities, many of whom gave birth to children from the Cossacks. By the way, the Cossacks themselves did not disdain to steal children - boys and raised soldiers from them. So it’s clear that I wouldn’t say that all the Cossacks were Slavs. The only requirement is to be Orthodox.

            Yes, you, my friend, a racist - deny the classic signs of the people as a historical community (among the Cossacks the language is Russian, the culture is Orthodox) and pay attention to the origin of the overwhelming minority of the Cossacks (Jews, Tatars, Turks) laughing

            If you agree with your approach, then, for example, no one calls Jews in any way, since they consist of a quarter of southern Semites (descendants of immigrants from Arabia Arabia), a quarter of northern Semites (descendants of immigrants from Mesopotamia), a quarter of rude (descendants of immigrants from Egypt), the rest are descendants of nomadic Erbins, Mitannian Aryans, etc.

              Yes, you, my friend, an idle talk trying to impersonate a philosopher - for you never understood such scientific designations as culture, language, ethnos, religion. You do not have to pass your words off as strangers - at least it’s not decent, at the most - it’s psychiatric deviations from the border zone to the "country of madness." I am not trying to insult or humiliate you. Just between your statement that I would have written about the fact that “the Cossacks are not Slavs” and what I wrote earlier “that I would definitely not say that all Cossacks were Slavs” - there is a big semantic difference. I hope that you are idle talk, not a sick person. And the second - as I understand it, you are not familiar with the history of the Zaporizhzhya Sich.

                Where did you see such a miraculous judo as an Orthodox Jew in fact, a Tatar in fact, or a Turk in the midst of Zaporizhzhya Cossacks, after the baptism, the foreigners automatically became Russian.

                Another thing is that now many of the Russian-speaking and Orthodox people recall some of their ancestors of non-Slavic origin and with a blue eye claim that despite the language and religion (as well as the numerous relatives of the Slavic line) they allegedly belong to the Tatars, Khazars, a special people, Cossacks and etc. etc.

                You are not the first who recalls the small exotic components of the peoples who speak Slavic languages. Prior to you, Bulgarian freaks were active in the VO, resting on their Bulgarian / Turkic origin. Upon learning that most of the Bulgarians are indeed direct descendants of not the Antes Slavs and Bulgars, but the indigenous Hamitic population of the Balkans (that is, Albanians - blood relatives of North African Berbers), the Bulgarian non-Slavs merged in quiet.

                Therefore, I deeply purple your opinion about my knowledge of the history of the Zaporozhye Cossacks.

      Exaltation and performance is so fashionable now ...
      According to the statements of the patriots, in fact, any archaeological find is assigned to the Slavs. It is completely incomprehensible where all the Aryans and Erbins came from then, somewhere their ancestors lived, were engaged in farming, probably built something, they buried the dead. Of course, we can assume that the rest of the nations were brought out in the secret laboratories of the Vatican (like clones in Star Wars)

There is only one thought in my head: "If only not Samsonov, if only not Samsonov" ... I opened my eyes, scrolled through the article, read Vashchenko below. Uh, relieved. Thank you, Edward, that it turned out to be you. smile hi
    Now, regarding the article, I have not read the comments yet, I will add my own and will do it.
    Article liked. Everything that I know about this topic completely coincides with the written author, while some of the information presented in the article turned out to be new for me and therefore particularly interesting.
    There is one question.
    I have repeatedly come across information that the earliest archaeological culture, reliably related to the Slavs, was the culture of Prague-Korchazhskaya. In the article she, in my opinion, is not mentioned. Did not reach her turn? smile

    The author did not provide all the versions of the origin of the Slavs, and Rybakov did not even mention the conclusions. Moreover, everywhere and everywhere the Germans and Celts. Okay, Celts. But the Germans at that time themselves were still those barbarians, what influence could they exert there? And stupid spelling mistakes just hurt your eyes.

      Dear, unfortunately I do not know the name,
      The article was written on the basis of the basic works listed, naturally, everything could not be placed, the early history of the Slavs, before appearing on the Danube, is extremely hypothetical, and the influence (in archaeological terms) of the listed ethnic groups is clearly seen, and from the beginning of the millennium one can read about this in a few written sources.
      Rybakov’s theory, with all due respect to the work of the late academician, is beyond the scope of my work, since I did not set myself the task of examining all theories. I personally consider it to be unfounded, which was repeatedly noted in the criticism of it.

    People with a brain affected by pseudo-patriotism, but still somehow alive - yes, as a rule, they try not to answer.
    If you start answering, you will have to admit that Slavs didn’t have their own written language even before the times of Cyril and Methodius, which contradicts their conception of a ten-thousand-year and more Slavic history. How, Russ, Slavs, arias, the founders of all states, the builders of all cities, the light of civilization and the only engine of progress, and suddenly they learned to write only a thousand years ago, and not just themselves, but simply from the Greeks (Bulgarians)! wassat
    People with a brain who died in an unequal struggle with pseudoscientific fabrications of various freaks are kept on a Veles book, on runes, etc. - this is generally a clinical case and is not subject to correction - only a lobotomy. smile
    In fact, it should be recognized that Slavs, as an ethnos, are historically very young, although they certainly originate genetically from the same first people as the rest. Both you and me and the same Operator or another pseudo-patriot with a nationalist bias - we all have ancestors who lived both 100 and 200 a million years ago and more, as the Finno-Ugrians and Celts and Mongols have them. But the ethnos itself, to which we and our ancestors belonged was formed relatively recently, is it good or bad.

    But what about “Slavic Germany”, in which before the advent of the Germans there were several Slavic union-states with their own fortified cities? And pay attention to their amazing similarity with Arkaim, for example, which was built already by proto-Iranians. In a word, the Slavs are the product of the reverse movement of the "megaculture of battle axes" that arose at about the same time, for example, with the same Germans.

    The author faced a difficult task in many respects from moving from fixing the fact of the appearance of the Slavs, which in itself is a very difficult problem to describing weapons based on a single archaeological culture (the author chose Przeworsk).
    At the same time, recognizing the multi-ethnicity of Przeworsk culture, the author without hesitation relates the archaeological finds mentioned in the article to the Slavs. Based on what? Here is the passage: "but if in the burials of the Celts of central Europe the weapon disappears, then on the periphery of the Celtic world it remains, which is completely explainable in the framework of military expansion. And the same rite began to use the Slavs. ” Nothing that the Slavic burials are mostly uninventory over different eras and cultures? And ritual burial with weapons is not typical for them at all.
    Rusanova I.P. in the textbook article “The Ethnic Composition of the Bearers of Przeworsk Culture.” It notes the fact of inconsistent Slavic burials and records as many as four ethnic groups within the framework of the Przeworsk culture.
    The author mentioned the ritual corruption of weapons allegedly borrowed from the Celts by the Slavs. I inform you that in the I – V centuries of our era, damage to weapons is a characteristic marker of the presence of Germanic tribes. This phenomenon can be traced from Denmark to the Black Sea. The Slavs did not do that. The reason is religious beliefs, reflected in the dominance of the very same uninventional burials.
    The picture "Slavic weapon .. is a fraud bordering a direct lie. In the original by Sedov. Weaponry and equipment for the rider of Przeworsk culture. There is a difference?
    You can check here https://history.wikireading.ru/98502
    By the way, the umbons in the picture have a triangular cross-sectional shape, a German classic.
    Knives Saxons from the Slavs - no comment. I’ll leave it to the conscience of the author
    The scabbard from the burial ground of Grinev is again twenty-five. Where is the Slavs?
    A similar style is here:
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gundestrup_cauldron
    What's next? The author will take Chernyakhov culture where weapons are represented mainly by German and Sarmatian samples and will pass them off as Slavic?
    The problem of ethnic attribution of archaeological cultures. Modern archeology generally does not equalize ethnic groups and cultures, avoids this. In the case of Przeworsk, undoubtedly multi-ethnic culture, we have that as soon as the Germans left, culture disappeared. In general, in the period under review, II in BC –III century BC there are no archaeological cultures unambiguously attributed as Slavic. Not even predominantly Slavic. There are mentions of the same venets, the Slavs seem to be there too, but no cultures unequivocally corresponding to them were found. It would seem that, logically, they should definitely be, but not yet. Archaeological finds characteristic of the Slavs (does the author know which ones?) Are widespread, but do not dominate anywhere. Pomeranian culture, which could qualify for this (with reservations), was replaced at that time by Pshevor and Oksyvskaya, mainly German (Oksyvskaya for sure). This is one of the problems of Slavic ethnogenesis. Therefore, the same mentions about the form of Slavic copies in that era by the author are unscientific speculation. It is impossible to justify their "Slavic" in this period.
    The author jumps from the ancestors of the Slavs to the early Slavs and ends with the Protoslavs in the last paragraph about the bow and arrow. Where is the logic? Yes, there is a whole problem. But since the author has already called the Przeworsk Slavs precisely Slavs, with or without reservations, let him write further. Why confuse the reader and produce entities?
    The names of archaeological cultures in Russian are written with a small letter.

      Dear Denis,
      Thanks for your detailed opinion, I will answer you, not so detailed.
      First, this article is not an analysis of historiography or a review of concepts and archaeological cultures, but an attempt to scientifically popularly outline a consistent chain of development of the Slavs, with some emphasis on military affairs and armament.
      Secondly, I clearly understand the polyethnicity of Przeworsk culture, as V. Sedov wrote about, next to “Objects of armament and equipment of the rider of Przeworsk culture”:
      “The concrete differentiation of Przeworsk antiquities into Slavic (Venetian) and Germanic antiquities meets a lot of difficulties. The heterogeneous population living in the same territory and often in the same settlements naturally enjoyed the same type. tools and armaments, the same household tools and pottery ceramics "
      , nevertheless, here he concludes that the main ethnic group in this territory were Slavs.
      Therefore, why we cannot very hypothetically assume that the Slavs used these weapons - it's hard for me to say. Why is the weapon of the Przvor rider a lie, and if you write the gepid? Celt? No? wink
      And I never wrote that these weapons were made by Slavs! Obviously, this is all borrowed weapons, but it seems acceptable to me to write that the spears are Slavic, there is no stretch here, as L. Niederle wrote about it: “This is where the Slavs are”: wink
      Not a scientific passage: how do you imagine if the Slavs (Przhora) did not use weapons found by archaeologists, how did they participate in the migration to the south, to the zone of dwelling of Saratov and the late Scythians: with sticks? wooden clubs? The question is not scientific, not supported by anything, but nevertheless ...
      As for the "Chernyakhovsky" weapon: I write (I have already written) that Sarmatians influenced, but otherwise, the warfare of the carriers of Przeworsk and Zarubynets culture, as can be assumed only hypothetically. I will not elaborate: there is no data.
      Entities will not produce - the remark took into account.
      And finally, it is not worth expressing your opinion exclusively in the mentor tone: “does the author know?” Imagine you know, the author has, including archaeological education and practice: to understand these issues, therefore, I began my very popular scientific article with the words of P.N. Tretyakov:
      "The history of the ancient Slavs in the coverage of archaeological materials is a field of hypotheses, usually short-lived, constantly causing numerous doubts."

      Sincerely.

        Edward, expensive time of day.
        Thank you for a more or less detailed answer. I don’t want to argue about the origin of the Slavs. It is worth writing at least one even reasoned sentence on the topic and immediately violate the conclusions of a bunch of monographs whose authors consider otherwise. I am only for the problem of the correlation of Slavs and Germans within the framework of our long-suffering Przeworsk culture.
        I understand your logic and the logic of Sedov. The peoples (Celts, Slavs or their ancestors, Germans) lived together within the framework of Przeworsk culture for 300 years. It is logical to assume that there was a unification of culture and weapons. But history is a science as we both understand. Household logic does not always work. The bottom line is that Rusanova in the mentioned article notes a low degree of mixing of different ethnic groups. And we know that a common people did not work out. For example, dishes for each group are specific. The funeral rite is biritual. Sedov himself notes this constantly.
        Here is a description of the pit burials, which he identifies with the Slavs:
        Pit burials with weapons are single and contain not sets of weapons (usually two spears, two spurs and a umbon), but separate objects: one spear, one spur or fragments of a umbon.
        https://history.wikireading.ru/98502
        Sets of weapons, ritual damage to weapons, rich cemeteries are chamber burials. This Sedov writes. Germanic (according to Sedov). Or Germanic-Celtic. And a drawing from Sedov with whole umbrellas from there.
        This means that each group most likely has its own weapon. To assume otherwise is a stretch.
        Check by retrospective method. The end of the culture. The Celts and Germans retreated under the onslaught of the Huns. Conventionally, the Slavic element begins to crystallize in the form of Prague culture of the XNUMXth century. Around the same territory. All technologically advanced characteristic for the Przeworsk culture disappears. These Slavs have neither Saxons nor swords. Neither brooches nor pottery. A retrospective analysis thus casts doubt on what they had at all.
        And a parallel with Chernyakhov’s culture. The Germans leave, the Slavs remain. M. Schukin even writes that they occupy houses abandoned by the Goths. But culture is disappearing. And again, neither the swords nor the advanced lanceolate copies of the remaining Slavs (Proto-Slavs)

          Good morning Denis
          thanks for the answer, a few thoughts:
          I don’t want to argue about the origin of the Slavs. It is necessary to write at least one even a reasoned proposal on the topic and immediately violate the conclusions of the heap of monographs whose authors consider differently.

          Absolutely agree. Therefore, this question was left open.
          About the weapon.
          This means that each group probably has its own weapon. To assume otherwise is a stretch.
          Maybe yes, maybe not.
          Of course, we enter the unproven zone here, but I will simply state my reasons:
          The Przeworsk culture undoubtedly fell into decay, I would correct it, not under the influence of the Huns, but because of the migration of the carriers of Przeworsk culture (Slavs and the East-Time element) under the influence of the carriers of Velbar culture (ready-gepids).
          Not only the active element left, there was a massive outflow of population, Jordan writes about a huge number of Slavs in the forest-steppes of Eastern Europe.
          Degradation occurred in Powisle.
          But, Tacitus, in the period of the active stage of the Przeworsk culture, noted the same customs of the Slavs with the Germans, and their active predatory activities may indicate the use of similar weapons as the Celts and the Germans, which they also produced.
          He does not report anything about the dependence of the Veneti on the Germans or on social stratification.
          You wrote about the spears, swords and Saxons - and why not use it? About the shields, Tacitus writes, and those rare Umbon finds, not even in the graves of "Slavs", but on the territory of a single archaeological culture, as confirmation of his words.
          Moreover, we do not possess mass archeological armaments, not Nosera Umbra.
          However, this question will always be controversial, I will not argue here. wink
          Yours faithfully,
          Edward

            Edward, good afternoon.
            The discussion is coming to an end. My opinion is all the same - it is necessary to fix only what is confirmed by archeology in precisely Slavic settlements and burials. And of course what the ancient authors write. Only in this way will we be completely correct. Do not forget that such articles form the near-historical mainstream awareness of history by ordinary people. Though pop music, it should be verified as Osprey publications, albeit professionals wrinkle their nose.
            Cherry on the cake - Mauritius about the Slavs. 200 years after the end of the Przeworsk culture Spear and shield. Another bow. No swords and Saxons.
            Sincerely.

              Denis thanks for the informative discussion,
              we’ll get to the "cherry") as well as to Procopius, who wrote how the Slavs received the Romance weapons and are in no way inferior to "us."
              PS According to osprey I do not always agree, pops oh not a little wink
              Best regards

      As soon as I saw an article about the Slavs in VO - wait for the heated debates in the comments. In my opinion, this also happens with historians ... And I am afraid to be considered a pessimist, but it seems that everything will continue until some miracle happens and the original historical work about the early Slavs BC is "well-excavated" in good condition.

    Answer to the Master Trilobite and Co.:
    "You will not consider the sorrows of the past, but the sorrows of the present are bitter. In a new place you will feel them. All together. What did the Lord send you? A place in the world of God. Do not count the strife of the past. Place in the world of God that the Lord sent you, surround in close Protect him day and night; no place - will. For his power please. Her children are still alive, knowing whose they are in this world of God.
    We will live again. There will be a service to God. Everything will be in the past, forget who we are. Where you will be, the children will be, the fields will be, a wonderful life - we will forget who we are. There is a child - there are bonds - we will forget who we are. What to consider, my God! Rysiyuniya enchants eyes. You won’t get anywhere from her, you won’t be cured. More than once it will be, we will hear: whose will you be, trotters, what honors are for you, helmets in curls; talk about you. Not yet, we will be Her, in this world of God. "

    You will perish, but your glory will remain for centuries, something like this mother said to her son escorting him to war. And because he looked into the water, his name is widely known to this day and forever in the name of the tendon that destroyed him.
    In publications about the Etruscans, in particular, it is written that smokes from the cousins ​​were visible far from the coast. And this is long before the 5th century AD. e.
    Figures from historical science are striking in their apparent scientific nature with the simultaneous elementary illiteracy in systems analysis and juxtaposition of a multitude of facts. When an ordinary modern student reads the texts of the Hittites, Etruscans, who are thousands of years old, historians seem like idiots. True, at a second glance it becomes clear that Russia is a country with an unpredictable history for political reasons, and the historians who wrote it are only lackeys of gentlemen.

    “There is no exact answer about where this name came from. Until the nineteenth century it was believed that it comes from the word“ glory ”(gloriosi). Another version, which was also used until the nineteenth century, suggested a connection between the word“ Slav ”and“ slave “, a term identical in many European languages.

    Modern theories suggest two solutions to this issue. The first links it with the places of the original stay of the Slavs, people living along rivers. Making it from the word "flow, water flows", hence: the river Sluya, Slavnitsa, Stawa, Stawica.

    The overwhelming majority of researchers are followers of another theory; they believe that the ethnonym comes from "the word" - verbosi: speak, "speak clearly", "people who speak clearly", unlike "Germans" - cannot speak, dumb.

    We meet him in the name of tribes and modern peoples: Slovenia Novgorod (Ancient Russia), Slovaks (Slovakia), Slovenes (Slovenia and other Balkan countries), Slovins-Kashubians (Poland). "

    Even without being a specialist, it is highly likely that the words “glory” and “word” are variants, dialects of one word. Accordingly, the "Slavs" and "Slovene." For example, Muscovites hoot, in the Vologda region they shout, Speaking of philologists, they can, based on the laws of development and transformation of words in a language, find out and say when one word was divided into two separate concepts.
    In a sense, the word “hero” can be considered a synonym for the word “glory”. One study of the word says that it had a different meaning from the modern one. This is not just a person who has accomplished a certain feat, who has shown heroism in the modern sense, but an animal, an impersonal being who has become a person, having acquired proper self-consciousness, his own “I”. In this sense, the word "German" is the antonym denoting just people who have not gained self-identity. This is already a subject of research for sociologists, sociopsychologists. Without an understanding of the sociophenomenon itself, the content and origin of the word "glory / word" it is incorrect to talk about the (time) origin of the Slavs. Why the peacock is bright and large tail is known and understandable. For cheo, they paint their lips and pierce the navel, too. Man is a social and conceited creature. Some names are worth something - Vyacheslav, Izyaslav, Mstislav ... glory ... glory ... glory.

    Now it’s hard for us to imagine a person who does not know how to speak and how able to speak is different from the first. This is actually not difficult. Such and now are not uncommon, in modern Russia -Mowgli-Germans objective reality. How many “Germans” were Mowgli, and how many Slavs are Slovenian in the past, the question is open, science is silent, but it was obvious that they began to speak in ancient times.
    There is another interesting point. Happening nothing, we measure our ancestors by our simplicity on our arshin. But the doctors, busy with the sleepwalkers, heard that their problem was related to the conflict, the struggle of two control centers in a person. As we understand, neither we nor the scientists have a clue what these "control centers" are. But on our own, we can suppose, whether it’s not a “subconscious” speech, or something that is called intuition in other words, extrasensory phenomena of a person. (According to other widely known sources of such “control centers” (is it not about the chakras?), A person has not two, but more (6).) However, this is not about that, but about the fact that other control centers dominated in the past in man! A logical question arises when was it and how does human behavior change from this? But is it not then, with the change of the control center that the Slovens appeared?
