The assault on the Byzantine fortress in the VI - early VII centuries. Author's drawing (not reconstruction)


foreword


The development of siege work among the Slavs (according to the available evidence in historical sources) shows how in a very short period of time they were able to master a rather complex military craft, going from complete ignorance of the principles of attacking a fortified settlement to the use of sophisticated, complex technology during sieges.

We emphasize that for the period under consideration siege weapons are the top of military technology, and not all warlike peoples were able to use them, which can not be said about the Slavs. We can assume that this situation was due to the fact that the Slavs themselves were already quite familiar with woodworking, and understanding of the creation of machines against this background came to them quickly enough.

The same situation was in shipbuilding, when the Slavs, actively using odnodrevki, learned about the technical possibilities of building more complex ships. It seems that the use of odnodrevki with extended boards boards was a big step forward. We don’t know on which boats the Slavs made the hikes that the sources tell us about the Greek islands or the east coast of Italy, but these transitions were not as simple as modern man might think and required a lot of knowledge.

Siege of the VI century


If at the beginning of the VI century. Since the Slavs could not even think about the seizure of cities, from the middle of the century they actively participated in sieges, at first together with the Huns, and then with the Avars, gradually increasing knowledge in this military craft.

In 578, at the request of the Avars, “mechanics and builders” arrived from Byzantium, whom they forced under threat of death to build a bridge across the Danube near the city of Sirmia. Thus, the Avars first mechanics appeared and they began to master the technique of building siege weapons. The ability of the Slavs to work with wood was actively used by the kagan in the construction of siege weapons under the leadership of the Romans prisoners and defectors, the construction of crossings during the siege of Sirmia (Sremska-Mitrovica) and Singidon (Belgrade), a city with "very strong walls."

We can assume that without the presence of the Avars in the army, it was precisely the Slavs, subjects and allies, they would have hardly been able to cope with the siege work, and this was in conditions when under the Emperor Justinian I new fortifications on the Danube border and in its rear were updated and built. At least in the sources we do not find information that the nomadic Avars themselves would take the city by attack.

The Slavs, even before the arrival of the formidable Avar warriors in Podunavye, for several years constantly increased the frequency of attacks on the borders of the Byzantine Empire, during the winter period 547/548, 549/550. they constantly plundered the countryside, not stopping before the fortifications. “Even many fortifications,” wrote Procopius from Caesarea, “who were here and in former times and seemed strong, since no one defended them, the Slavs managed to be in-law.”

They probably took the border towns either by a sudden raid, or by cunning, and sometimes by starvation, destroying the infrastructure.

In the province of Lower Moesia, the Slavs even settled down in the vicinity of the looted settlement Ulmiton and the fortress of Adina, which forced Emperor Justinian I to strengthen these settlements:

"... since the barbarians-Slavs are constantly hiding here, and, secretly setting up ambushes against those who go this way, they made these places completely impassable."

A large number of fortresses were destroyed in the borderlands, as indicated by archeology: Sasidava N.III, Histria Rom. D-1, Ulmetum C (see above), Dinogetia C, Sucidava C, Novae D-0b (Shuvalov P.V.).

In 549/550, the Slavs took and devastated the city of Toper (or Topir) on the Mesta River (Nestos River, Greece) in the province of Rhodope (Rodona). A huge number of researchers consider this an important milestone in the fighting of the Slavs.

It was a rich town located on an important trade route, flourishing thanks to trade, judging by the number of people killed (15 thousand men), it was not a small town in the Early Middle Ages. The city was protected on several sides by a river, on one side of it was a hill that towered above the fortress walls, which did not have adequate protection for the defenders.

From the story of Procopius of Caesarea, you can see what tactics the Slavs used to capture settlements during this period. It came down to either military tricks or sudden raids.

Since Toper, which was extremely rare during this period, had a permanent military garrison, the Slavs first lured him out of the city. Their small detachment in front of the gate bothered the defenders of the walls. Stratiots in full force, armed, without proper intelligence, came out to drive them away. The Slavs started a feigned flight, forcing the Byzantines to pursue them, at the same time the Slav warriors who suddenly emerged from an ambush hit the Romans in the rear and completely destroyed the opponents. The combined forces of the Slavs immediately attacked the walls of Toper, the townspeople in the absence of warriors tried to fight off the attack, they threw stones and poured boiling oil and tar, but the resistance was short-lived.

The Slavs, without wasting time, “fired a cloud of arrows at them”, taking advantage of the absence of protective galleries on the wall and the fact that a hill dominated the walls of the city, shot down the townspeople with arrows, and, having put down the stairs, took Toper with an attack, then made him cruel massacre.

In the period from 584 to spring 587 the Avars, obviously, together with the Slavs, "literally ironed the Lower Danube limes," according to the researcher P.V. Shuvalov, destroying all the Romance fortifications.

In 584, the Slavs traveled all of Hellas to Thessaloniki, capturing many cities and fortresses, as John of Ephesus writes about.

All the details of the Slavic sieges of Thessalonica are described in the hagiographic essay (description of the life of the saints), “Miracles of St. Demetrius of Solunsky ”(hereinafter CDS), a work written by various authors, the first of which was Archbishop Thessaloniki John, who lived in the late VI - early VII centuries.

The date of the first siege remains open: either in the 90s or 80s of the VI century. The last date is comparable to the campaigns described by John of Ephesus, so a powerful Slavic army of 5 thousand soldiers approached the city:

"They would not have attacked such a large city so suddenly if they had not surpassed those who had ever fought against them by force and courage."

But with a swift take of the city failed.

But the dating of the following events of 584-587, in our opinion, requires significant adjustment, we will try to reconstruct them.

We see that in 584 the Slavs tried to capture Thessaloniki from a swoop, without using any siege technique.

And soon the Slavs, subjects of the Avar, took the city of Ankhial on the Black Sea coast, breaking the wall, according to some researchers, this happened in 585 (N.I. Serikov).

But in 586 all the Romance troops of the master of millilitum presented Comeniusola in Anchial, the representative took and distributed the troops here, obviously, there could be no talk of any capture of the city in the previous year, since Theophilos the Confessor had nothing to do with it.


Anchial, modern Pomorie, Bulgaria

In the same year 586, the kagan, having defeated the expeditionary army of Komenziol, took many cities and went to the Long Walls, but fled from them due to an inexplicable panic. On the way, he embarked on a siege of a certain city of Apiria (Απειριαν), where the siege mechanic Busa was captured. The townspeople did not want to buy the bus, which the Avars were going to kill. They were incited by the lover of the wife of this same Bead. Then he (primarily in revenge) built a ram for the Avar (κριός) - a battering ram, and taught them how to make siege mechanisms with which they took the city and other cities, most likely in Thrace, not far from the capital. All this happened in 586/587.

This is the starting point, when the Avar and the Slavs appeared on this theater as a professional polyorgetic, which Feofan fixes in his Chronicle. Other mechanics may have been captured, but documents that have reached us do not report this.

It was at this time that the allies of Byzantium, the Antes, attacked Slovenian settlements, and not in 585.

After which the Slovenes began to devastate the coastal strip along the Black Sea, here they moved north, possibly in the direction of the Ants who attacked their lands, in the province of Geminont.

And just at that time they came to Ankhialai (modern Pomorie, Bulgaria), a city fortified by Justinian, located on a cape and inaccessible from the sea. The Slavs broke the wall and captured it. How did this happen?

Perhaps, with the help of a ram, having learned to build it from a captive mechanic, it is possible, as described in the CDS:

"Then, hiding under turtles covered with leathers, scary, like snakes, they began, as already mentioned, to destroy the foundation of proteichism (external strengthening) with axes and crowbars."

That is, already at the end of the VI century. Slavs learned to break open city walls. We repeat, in the case of the mentioned city of Ankhial, we don’t know whether the ram was used or manual, if there was a “turtle” over the besiegers, or they acted with picks and crowbars, only under the cover of shields and shooters.

In 597, the Slavs ravaged the capital of Lower Moesia - the well-fortified Markianopol (Devnya village, Bulgaria), how it was captured, it is not known, possibly with a swoop or cunning, as happened with the highly fortified city of Salona (Split region, Croatia) in Dalmatia. Byzantine border units from Salon, taking advantage of the absence of men in the adjacent territory belonging to the Avars, carried out robberies. The Slavs, having ambushed them, killed the attackers.

"Taking them weapon, banners and other military signs and crossing the river, the named Slavs came to the cisre. Seeing them, the Romans who were there, taking also the banners and weapons of their fellow tribesmen, considered them themselves as such. When the named Slavs reached the enema, they allowed them to pass. Having passed, the Slavs immediately expelled the Romans and took possession of the aforementioned fortress of the Salon. ”

Perhaps, on September 22, 597, the second siege of Thessalonica began, in any case, this event occurred at the end of the VI century. Archbishop John wrote that Avars, Slavs and other barbarians, were sent to the siege of the largest city of the Balkans, while the kagan himself moved to Dalmatia. This raid was associated with the failure of the kagan during the siege of the long-suffering Singidun.

But back to Thessalonica. Besiegers, unfamiliar with the area, took the fortress of St. The matrons who stood in front of the city, beyond Thessalonica, and first attacked her.


Thessaloniki Walls

The army brought with them pre-made stairs. Warriors did not waste time on the fortress of St. The matrons, realizing that they were mistaken, they put the stairs to the walls of the city and immediately began the assault. The first onslaught was stopped solely due to a miracle, since there were few defenders on the wall, perhaps it was a spontaneous onslaught of a small part of the army, while others were engaged in sieges of small fortresses around the city and robbing the surrounding area. The city was completely surrounded by land. An attempt to capture the city from the raid was connected with the fact that it was practically impossible to take it with the correct siege. Even despite the fact that the city did not have an eparch and the main city militia.

The city had a double wall with a thickness of 2 to 4,6 m, a height of 8,5 to 12 m, which completely coincided with the theoretical settings prescribed in Poliorketiki.

On the night of September 23-24, the besiegers began preparations for the assault, perhaps the army made a sacrifice, because a huge fire was lit, and around it the soldiers made terrifying cries.

The next day began the manufacture of siege equipment:

“Then all night and tomorrow we heard noise from all sides when they prepared gelepolis, iron“ rams ”, huge stone-throwers and so-called“ turtles ”, which they covered with dry-skinned stone-throwers. Then they changed their minds and, so that these guns would not be harmed by fire or boiling tar, replaced their skin with bloodied skins of freshly picked bulls and camels. ”

From this episode, we see that the Slavs confidently build siege machines, which were repeatedly described in the Poliorketiki of the ancient Romans and Greeks.

Interestingly, the Life shows us a detailed procedure for the Slavs under Thessalonica.

On September 24, they prepare guns, on September 25 they begin a siege: at the same time they are trying to break through the wall with wall-driven vehicles and enter the city from the sea on rafts. On September 26, the besiegers made a successful sortie. On September 27 and 28, the Slavs continued shelling from stone-throwers and other weapons:

“And they enclosed the quadrangular stone-throwers with boards on only three sides, so that those inside were not wounded by arrows [sent] from the wall. But when one of them, along with the boards, caught fire from the fire arrow, they retreated, carrying away the guns. The next day they again delivered the same stone-throwers, covered together with the boards, as we have said, with freshly skinned skins, and, putting them closer to the wall, threw mountains and hills, shooting at us. "

All this siege shows that, even among the Slavs, specialists appeared who were able to build the most complex military tools of this period, tactically and technically (lack of food supplies), they were not yet prepared for long sieges:

"A lot of stones sent from the city, as by order, fell into the narrowed top of the barbaric stone-throwers and killed those inside."

As usual, the contradictions also affected, possibly connected with the “democratic” structure of the Slavic army, and the lack of unity of command. Or clashes between different tribes of the kagan: Avars, Bulgarians, Gepids? .. Already on the eve of the September 29 assault, an escape from the Slavic camp to the city began.

It can be assumed that, in conditions of failure, numerous Slavs immediately abandoned the Avars and came into conflict with them. The Avars could keep the Slavs in subjection in Panonia, at first exclusively with the help of terror, and later including them in the common cause of robbery during campaigns. This mechanism worked in case of victories (the capture of the Salon), but did not work in the event of the slightest military failure.

After that, the besiegers decided to urgently withdraw, and part of the defectors left for the city.

In the same year 597, as Feofilakt Simokatta writes about, the kagan himself with the “crowds of barbarians” besieged the city of Bonnie in Dalmatia, and, most importantly, with the help of many wall-hung guns, captured forty fortifications in the area. Thus, we clearly see the continuous development of the siege technique among the Avars, and, naturally, of the Slavs, because without the latter it is doubtful that the nomads master this technique.

Siege of the VII century


The Slavic tribes of this period, who lived in a vast space, fought with different opponents, but sources give us the opportunity to confidently talk about the gradual growth of their skills in siege business. In 605, as part of the Lombard troops, the Slavs, subjects of the Hagan, took part in the siege of several North Italian cities, in particular, Mantova was taken with the help of rams.

But Thomas Splitsky, reports a new seizure of Salon, but by the Antian tribe of Croats, the fierce enemies of the Avar, in 615 or 616. He writes that

“Began [the leader. - V.E.] from all sides constantly bombard the Salon with arrows or darts. Some from the slope of the overhanging mountain with a deafening roar threw stones from the sling at the walls, others, in a closed formation, gradually approaching the walls, wondered how to ram the gates. ”

If the message of Thomas Splitsky is genuine, then we see that the Antes are already actively using siege weapons: the Salon could not stand the siege and was taken.

A new siege of Thessaloniki occurred in the 10-20s of the 618th century, possibly around XNUMX, and if the Slavs, dependent on the Avars, participated in the previous assaults, then completely free tribes attack Thessaloniki. At a time when the question of whether or not to be a Roman Empire was being decided in the East, the Slavs began to colonize the European part of the empire: at first they plundered the islands and coast of all of Greece, and then approached on odnodrevki to the largest city of Greece. At the same time, everyone from small to large participated in the campaign.

The elected military leader of the Slavic tribes Khatson or Khotun divined before the siege and received signs that he would enter the city.

For three days, the Slavs looked for weaknesses in the defense of the city, both from the shore and from the sea, built siege weapons, and the townspeople tried to create additional fortifications. Perhaps, an attack from the land of such a powerful and well-fortified city was not supposed, but it was a distracting maneuver, with the aim of attacking a weakly protected harbor and fortifications of the coast. And then the assault began:

“On the fourth day at sunrise, the whole barbarian tribe simultaneously screamed and attacked the city wall from all sides: some threw stones from the prepared stone throwers, others dragged the stairs to the wall, trying to capture it, still others brought fire to the gates, fourth sent arrows to the walls like snow clouds. "

At the same time, an attack of the Slavs from the sea began, it is worth noting that the author writes either about odnodrevki, then about the ships that use the Slavs. It’s not worth guessing here for a long time, it’s quite possible that the Slavs had not only odnodrevki, but also various ships, possibly captured on campaigns, as was the case described in the same CDS, when the Slavs seized a ship off the coast of Greece with Bishop Cyprian from Africa at the end of the XNUMXth century

The city was seriously preparing for defense. The Romans blocked the harbor with a chain, spear fortified the coast. In the harbor, a fence was made of heavy, interlocked vessels.

Warriors on ships tried to land in places that they had spotted in the previous days, moreover, they knew about traps, however, something went wrong. Either the intercession of St. Dmitry, who traveled around the city by land and water, or the sudden deterioration of weather conditions, changed the situation at sea. The ships of the Slavs began to collide, some overturned, while others carried just to the shore to traps and shallows.

In addition, the leader of the Slavs Khatson was captured, that is, the prediction came true, and he "entered the gates of the city." This happened just at the gates that were the weakest fortified and which the Slavs wanted to attack from the sea. It is difficult to agree that during or immediately after the battle he made his way to the city for negotiations, most likely he was captured. One of the noble townspeople tried to shelter him, use him for some kind of bargaining with the Slavs, but the townspeople found out about this, and the women of Thessaloniki tore the Slavic leader.

But the city did not get rid of danger. Slavic tribes migrating to Greece saw him as a significant threat and at the same time tidied prey. In conditions when the empire could not allocate an expeditionary army for the Balkans, the Slavs called the Avar into the allies of the Kagan, seducing him with easy prey, as the author of the CDS writes.

At the same time, the Avars themselves were actively fighting against the Byzantines, even trying to capture Constantinople with a snap.

Maybe the arrival of the Avar forces was not connected with the Slavic embassy, ​​since the Khagan was already interested in the capture of the city.

In 620, he arrived under the city with great power, and it can be said that it was a rehearsal of the siege of Constantinople in 626. The same alignment of forces attracts attention: Slavic tribes, allies of the Avars, Avars with their subjects Slavs, Bulgarians, Gepids and other tribes.

An attempt to capture the city with armored riders failed. The attackers brought up pre-prepared siege weapons:

“Some cooked the so-called“ turtles ”from braids and leathers, others - at the gates of“ rams ”from huge trunks and well-rotating wheels, others - huge wooden towers that exceeded the height of the wall, at the top of which were armed strong youths, the fourth were driven in by the so-called gorpeks "fifths dragged ladders on wheels, sixths invented flammable means."

It is worth noting that the besiegers and the besieged used different types of stone throwers, which the author emphasizes in terms of CDS.

The siege lasted 30 days, but due to the fact that the city constantly received help from the sea, it was unsuccessful and was lifted: the kagan left for Pannonia, especially since his enterprise could not be called unsuccessful: at the same time the Avars and Slavs devastated and took captured a huge number of the population.

The first siege of Constantinople


In 626, a grandiose event took place: Slavic tribes took part in the siege of the capital of the great Roman Empire - Constantinople. The city had powerful fortifications, its towers were 18 m high, the walls were 9 m high and 5 m thick.

We already wrote about this siege in an article on VO “Slavs, Avars and Byzantium. The beginning of the XNUMXth century ”. Let's pay attention to some details that are not covered in the article.

Theophanes the Confessor reports that the Persian commander Sarvaros made an alliance with the Avars, separately with the Bulgars, Gepids, and the Slavs.

The location of the troops, which is described in the Easter Chronicle, is also significant: the kagan took a position in front of the walls of Constantinople in the center and north, closer to the Golden Horn, in the north were Slavs subordinate to the Avars. To the south, from the Avar headquarters, and at the Golden Gate, are the Allied Slavs. There is no absolute clarity here, but it can be assumed that these allied Slavs are precisely those with whom the Sassanids separately agreed. These are Slavic tribes who occupied the 20th century VII century. land in Greece and Macedonia. It was they who more than once participated in joint operations with the Avars, who supported the siege of the second Rome.

They, outraged by the fact that the kagan ordered to kill the Slavs from odnodrevki, who fell under the blow of the Romans warships, lifted the siege and the kagan was forced to follow them (Ivanov S.A.).

As for the siege weapons near the Avars near Constantinople, about which Patriarch Nicephorus writes (the XNUMXth century, “wooden towers and turtles”, χελωναι τα κατασκευάσματα), it is most likely that the Slavs were engaged in their construction.

The blockade of Thessaloniki 674-677


The “Miracle 5” of St. Dmitry tells us that the Slavic tribes who settled in Greece and Macedonia, despite the fact that they had various contacts with Thessalonica, hatched plans to capture the city. The prince of the Rhinkhas, Pervud, or Preboud (translated in The Great Chatei-Mineiey), often visited Thessaloniki, spoke Greek and wore Romance clothes, and he was captured in 674 by order of Vasileus Constantine IV (668–685 ) and sent to the capital. This was done contrary to the interests of the city, since a delegation consisting of Slavic representatives and citizens went to the emperor. Konstantin said that he would release him at the end of the war with the Arabs, most likely the capture of Preboud was due to the fact that the emperor wanted to protect his rear from Slavic attacks, but the opposite happened.

Due to unforeseen circumstances, Pervud was killed in Constantinople, which caused fury of the Rhinkhins, their neighbors and allies:

“First of all, they decided among themselves that the Slavs from Strimon would capture the eastern and northern sides, and the Slavs from Rinkhin and the sagudata would capture the western and coastal [sending] connected ships every day.”

The two-year blockade of Thessaloniki began. The Slavs constantly attacked the surroundings and the city both on land and from the sea, using "connected ships." Under the connected ships, some researchers consider single-boat boats, connected in three pieces with a deck of boards for installing siege weapons. Of course, such structures can only be used on calm water, which, for example, is advised by the polyorgetic Anonymous Byzantine in his theoretical work (≈ X century). It is worth saying that the townspeople also used odnodrevki. In the end, a terrible city came in and around the city. The deserter Slave lured a detachment of the city militia from the city, which probably consisted of the best soldiers, and the Slavs destroyed it.

To top it all, sailors who came to the rescue of the city on ships worked in the city of outrage. Then, in the policy, it was decided to send all available ships, ships and odnodrevki for food to the Velegesite tribe along with the remaining soldiers. The Velegesite tribe did not take part in the siege, but was ready, if necessary or possible, to support other Slavs.

The Slavs decided to take advantage of the departure of the main forces. The leaders of the Druzhuvite tribe, which had not previously been mentioned during the blockade, appeared under the walls of the city and offered to storm. Apparently, they did siege artillery and various devices, according to the author of “5 miracles,” “this was something that none of our generation knew and never saw, and we still have not been able to give most of them title".

On July 25, 677, Slavs from the Rhinkhin and Sagudat tribes densely surrounded the city from the sea and land, scouts looked for weak spots in the defense and established siege artillery. True, one Slavic tribe, the Strimonians, did not approach the city, but turned back.

The next day the assault began. It lasted three days: but, as the author of this part of the CDS explains, there can be no explanation for the victory of the weak forces of the city, except for the intercession of St. Dmitry.

And again the failure caused discord among the Slavic tribes, we note that the Slavic militia did not have a single leader, at least the source did not report him, and we are talking only about a lot of leaders.

But the Slavs had an advantage in power, so they continued to rob around the city, the dispatch of the imperial troops sent the army of the Slavs, but did not dare to reach Thessaloniki.

And here we come to the most important information from this source. So, at the end of the VII century. we see which way the Slavs went from complete inability to besiege fortifications to the construction of the most complex siege weapons:

“Among them was one of this Slavic people, who knew how to behave with dignity, efficient and reasonable, and also, thanks to his vast experience, versed in the construction and installation of military vehicles. He asked the prince himself to give him permission and help in order to build a magnificent tower of tightly connected logs, to put it, skillfully strengthening it, on wheels or some ice rinks. He wanted to cover it with freshly ripped skins, set stone-throwers on top, and chain it on both sides in the form of ... a sword. From above where there are battlements, hoplites will go. It would be three floors so that archers and slingers could be placed in it - in a word, to build such a machine with the help of which, he claimed, they would definitely take the city. "

We emphasize that we have come a long way in military knowledge. Which, however, does not contradict the tribal system of society. Military activity and robbery in the conditions of migration come to the fore, as with other "barbarian" peoples. Although, after some time, the Slavs will completely settle on occupied lands, which we already see from the same source: the Slavs are successfully engaged in agriculture, including the development of new crops (the Velegesite tribe). Obviously, such societies, due to their internal structure, could not remain constantly in a state of war.

What technique did the Slavs use in sieges? This will be described in detail in the next article.

    ??? Of course, thanks to the author for the work, but after reading so many questions arose to the author that one can write a separate article from them, which in turn is prohibited by the site rules. It looks like we should offer to open a new heading on "VO" - "Alternative history"

      The entire history of the Slavs (and not only) of that time, in principle, can be safely called alternative. The Slavs themselves practically did not leave written sources. Archaeological excavations give an idea about the life of the Slavs, but not about the historical events that took place then. So it turns out that the whole history of that time is our idea of ​​it, based largely on mythologized sources (usually of Western European or Eastern origin), the reliability of which should be treated with a great deal of caution (the authors wrote about what they themselves did not see, but learned from sources "trustworthy"), as well as on the frank inventions of historians themselves, depending on many factors (the authors' fantasies, their political engagement, and much more).

        Incorrect remark. It would be more correct - the Christians, having come to the Slavs, burned everything out, fighting the polytheism of the Slavs. "Baptism" of the Slavs took place with the help of "fire and sword" with all the ensuing consequences.

          Invalid remark.

            The birch bark letters found "in the mud" were trampled back into the mud quite recently (until the beginning of the XNUMXth century).
            No wooden Slavic idols were found - so there were none?

                Thanks for the interesting selection, but your examples do not refute the statement that "Wooden Slavic idols were not found." Not found yet.
                The found wooden idol could not be Slavic, and the found Slavic (presumably) were not wooden, which is not evidence that the Slavs did not make wooden idols.

                It is correct to say that currently scholars do not have reliable samples of Slavic writing of 6-7 centuries, or they are not identified as Slavic.
                The statement that there was no written language is incorrect.

            It is interesting to clarify what period the written birch barks date from, which do you mean? "Cyrillic" in pre-Christian Novgorod (before Dobrynya and Vladimir) is an oxymoron. Novgorod is not Bohemia, and not Moravia, it is not possible to get to it from the Czech Republic for a hundred bucks in a taxi, and in order to spread the Greek letter among a wide segment of the population, at the then speed of information exchange, it is generally unrealistic. I suppose it should be accepted that the Slavs even without Cyril and Methodius had a household letter - the initial letter was called, and the words were unambiguous.

                What appears to be the "Veles Book" - poor quality pictures - was investigated by specialists: graphologists, linguists, etc. You may not know that modern linguistics is able to determine from the written text the time of its writing with an accuracy of half a century, as well as the place of its writing with an accuracy of the region, in relation to medieval Russia - to the principality. Yes, yes, they spoke differently there, in Novgorod, Smolensk, Kiev, Galich ... But they wrote as they said, there were no rules.
                So, the research of these specialists showed that the so-called. "Veles's book" was certainly written no earlier than the XNUMXth century, because it contains words that appeared at that time. There is a lot more, read it, you will be interested. The same goes for the way of writing. Okay, it was written in a unique way, but a hodgepodge of fonts from the XNUMXth - XNUMXth centuries was used.

    the Greeks left a whole bunch of written sources, Plato, Thucydides, Herodotus, but there was no state left i.e. the very foundation upon which all this writing Greek fraternity was based.
    The Greeks do not have kindred peoples, do not have a vast territory, do not have those ship forests from which the "ancient Greeks" created their "triremes and five-remes." And the state of Greece itself arose only in the 19th century with, as usual with the king, a German. no one notices these inconsistencies between reality and writing, but everyone believes that if you read Thucydides and Herodotus, then this is science, no, this is pseudoscience.
    The Slavs, on the contrary, have no sources from the first millennium, and there are a lot of all kinds of suspicious lists of chronicles from the second millennium, which in a strange way lie in the OI. But the Slavs left a huge state with a history written not by the Russians.

      States, you know, have this property - they are born, age and die. The peoples who inhabited them are changing, transforming into other peoples, changing languages ​​and customs. In two thousand years, probably, there will be neither Russia, nor the USA, nor China, in any case, in the form, at least somewhat reminiscent of today, our distant descendants will have a different language, other customs that are completely different from ours, the language Pushkin will be for them, as now, classical Latin for the inhabitant of the London slums. And such a state - the Russian Federation - in a couple of thousand years with a probability of 99,9% will not. Does this mean that we do not exist now? laughing

        is it a lie, besides paper pseudo-states such as Greece, Carthage, Phenicia no one has died, at least one state name the real one that would die? There are none. States are transforming, others are emerging in these territories, there was Austria, Hungary became Austria and Hungary, there were Florence, Naples and Venice with Lombardy, it became Italy and so on.
        There is only one state of Tartaria, from which new states constantly grow, but it is this process of OI that is trying to hide from us.

          Now, you are already starting to understand something.
          There was, for example, the empire of Charlemagne. Then again! - and she died, she was gone. In its place, other state entities appeared, each with its own language, with its own customs, etc. There was an ancient state of Rurikovich and it, too, by the beginning of the XII century. died, leaving behind a dozen completely independent principalities, or in European, kingdoms, rapturously slashing among themselves with even more eagerness than with their neighbors. The same Austria-Hungary, you are right. Now she is gone, this state has died, and not only Austria and Hungary have remained from it, but also much more ...
          And before that there was the Ancient Roman state, the state of Alexander the Great, Babylon, Phenicia, Carthage, Egypt - not to mention everyone. And all these were states, people lived in them, speaking such languages ​​that no one speaks anymore, and representing peoples that now no longer exist. And at the same time they are (or are not) the ancestors of those who live in their former territory now.

There are no coins, there are no seals, chronicles or annals, there is no literature, visual art, there is nothing but the fantasies of medieval cartographers. The old Russian state - yes, it was. The Mongol empire - was (also, incidentally, an example of a state that has sunk into oblivion), even the Chinese empire Si-Xia was. But Tartaria was not, as there were no peshegolovtsev, or one-armed and one-legged peoples who walked, rolling from hand to foot, which are indicated on the same maps.

For example, the fact that the Tatars and the Mongols are one and the same. He directly speaks about this already in the title of his notes, but for the gifted he even left a special description of these same Mongols:
                      The appearance of persons is different from all other people. It is between the eyes and between the cheeks that they are wider than that of other people, but the cheeks protrude very much from the cheekbones; their nose is flat and small; eyes are small, and eyelashes are raised to eyebrows. In the belt, they are generally thin, with the exception of a few, and, moreover, a few, almost all of them are not tall. Everyone’s beard almost grows very small, yet some have small hair on their upper lip and beard, which they do not cut. On the top of their head they have a Humen like clerics, and they generally shave [the head] for three fingers of width from one ear to the other; these shaved places are connected to the aforementioned Humens; above the forehead, in the same way, everyone also shaves with two fingers of width; the same hair that is between the Humens and the aforementioned shaved place, they leave to grow up to the eyebrows, and on both sides of the forehead leave long hair, cutting off more than half; the rest of the hair is allowed to grow, like women. Of these hairs, they make up two braids and knotted each behind the ear. Their legs are also small.

                      of course.
                      The rise of the Tatar-Mongols in the understanding of the Olympic Games to the very heights of statehood, and then the rapid degradation to the primitive communal system, are miracles of the historical balancing act of the Olympic Games. It is clear to any beginning historian that this could not be so, that fraud and falsification took place.
                      Plano Carpini, like all these "chronicles" of course, was subjected to ideological processing by the regime of the Romanovs. But grains of truth have survived, for example, that Tartary WAS. In those days of 1825, when this edition came out, the state of Tartaria was still there, and those falsifiers had not yet come to mind to deny the state of Tartary itself, therefore, mischievous things.
                      However, of course, it’s no longer a trifle, the very name of tartaria is already fake, so they did not call themselves.

    Empire - a state with extensive colonial possessions (for example: the British Empire), or a large multinational entity controlled from one center - for example: the Ottoman Empire, the Byzantine Empire, the Russian Empire.

    So, political formations are dying, but not the people living on these lands. The "Rurik state" died in your brains, and my ancestors, as they lived on these lands, remained and nothing has changed for them, neither language, nor culture, nor customs.
    One more thing. What do you care about Petukhov. You'd better write something like his "Roads of the Gods". Ali are not helpful? Well, then, take at least one chapter from this work and "butcher it like a nut," and we will read it with pleasure. And then we will draw conclusions. Or weak?

      Just in case, I’ll explain. Empire is a state. And the people are people. The state is dying - the people are living. Moreover, the process of ethnogenesis itself is continuous. Ethnic groups merge and separate, peoples change names, languages, customs, in accordance with these changes, people are organized into states.
      And about the state of the Ruriks ... Well, well, you can probably call me its capital, its head, for example, well ... that year in 1200, for example, if it was a state.
      I don't really want to waste time on Petukhov. There are many of you like that, if you please everyone, "carving like a nut" his idols, which in general is not difficult, the rest will be offended.
      However, if your brotherhood will throw money to me, I’m ready to consider such an offer - after all, time will be wasted not in vain. Think about it.

              Let's go back to the Rurikovich.
              My thesis is that a single state finally ceased to exist at the beginning of the 1132th century. To be exact, with the death of Mstislav the Great in XNUMX
              You stated that this happened only in my brains. That is, you did not agree with my statement and it turns out that, in your opinion, a single state continued to exist after 1132. I suggested that you name the capital of this state and its ruler, since you think I'm wrong. So you didn’t like the result?
              If you still think that there are contradictions in my words, I will explain it specifically for you at the most primitive level. The state - Russia, which in historiography is usually called Kievan, by the name of its capital, ceased to exist, breaking up into many separate sovereign principalities-states with their capitals, leaders, and the state apparatus. If you think differently, name me the capital of the united Russian state and its leader for the year 1200.

        Quote: Trilobite Master
        States, you know, have this property - they are born, age and die[dot, next sentence] The peoples who inhabited them are changing, transforming into other peoples, changing languages ​​and customs.
        There was a crowd of states, with their own languages, customs, culture, languages.
        They gathered together, called the USSR.
        A process has begun in which almost everyone has learned to speak the same universal language, not always forgetting their native ... exchange of culture, customs ...
        The USSR collapsed, breakaway education called itself to the extent of education and corruption (including Lithuania, which has all the attributes of the state, even if it depends on everyone and everything). The same Lithuania is inhabited by people endowed with some kind of culture and having a history. In addition, both culture and history are once started and / or invented. Normal people call the second option myth-making.

              So: for reading you need to: study at least alphabetwhich is somewhat different, all sorts superscripts and other signs, the meanings of many obsolete and changed the meaning of words, Reduceof which there are many history, surprisingly. Those. read "without stress" will not work.

        According to physics, mass and acceleration must be considered. And, accordingly, the strength of the tree itself and the strength of the masonry. I believe in a good oak or larch.

          And the type of shock is elastic - inelastic and load distribution in the thickness of the wall. You can simulate, but the validity of the model is in question. The experiment is expensive.
          From the history
          The ram tree was always used in tandem with something solid for the knob. They tried to work against the gate, but they also broke the walls
          It shows how an Assyrian ram breaks a wall. But as far as I remember, typical walls of that time were using clay instead of mortar.
          http://xlegio.ru/siege-machinery/poliorketika-and-paraskeuastika/assyrian-siege-machinery/

          The Romans used the largest ram of Nikon in the Judean War (apparently with a standard ram head from a bronze cast, but very large)
          They were opposed by powerful block stone walls with lime mortar.
          Nikon cracked the city wall in a few days. Against the temple wall, even he was powerless.
          Even earlier, typical legion rams could not defeat one of the towers of Jerusalem

              My opinion is that they were hardly cast, but they were probably clad in metal. Hardness of the impact surface is very important.

            Good evening,
            There are hot topics. About good Stalin and bad Khrushchev. About politics and economics. Take a walk, have fun, arrange a cabin. No, they’re climbing here. There used to be one Bar, but I treat him like a nachkhim on a submarine. And then the Mongol invasion is direct, as illiterate as it is aggressive.

        It would be interesting to know what our direct ancestors were doing at that time - the Eastern Slavs and, partly, the Western ones, namely those who later created the state in which we now live.

        Michael,
        I welcome, slowly, but I hope confidently, I am going to this. The second part of the article will be about strengthening our ancestors in Eastern Europe.
        Not all historiography is available to me, I read a lot of new things, YOU do not see the links - and they are in the original of my article for each "sneeze", or it is about Ancient Russia - there is my element - I rush there

      some elements of the figure suggest archaeological sources

      Sure, but the elements themselves are very few.
      The ax of the Slav is most likely taken from the Kazan article, already laid out a link to it in the previous topic
      The Byzantine helmets are standard spangels, they are also sometimes segmented composite

          Good afternoon, edward
          Kazan has excellent articles in terms of systematization and visibility. Everything is cataloged and marked on maps.
          It seems to me that it would be worth mentioning it in the sources. Not only because of its correctness, but also because it should be recommended for reading to everyone interested. It does NOT contain "many bukfs" and a lot of information for thought.
          It is somewhat surprising that despite the scarcity of archaeological finds, the esteemed Mikhail Kazan supporter of the existence of squads among the Slavs in the 6-8 centuries. His opinion certainly carries weight.

            Now, when one article about gray is about weapons, I don’t agree with everything with Kazan, in particular about the squad, as mentioned above, there will be many references to a number of his works.

      Yes, a little written, a little archeology.
      Sword - similar to the Byzantine VI-VII centuries. , helmets - spangelhelms, I wrote an article here on VO about all the finds of the VI century. (V-VI and VI - beginning of the VII centuries), there are many finds in the present and already "then" lands of the Slavs: two are kept in Bratislava, there are many from the Balkans.
      I'm not talking about whether they used it or not - there is no exact data, but if they were in the same territories, why not?
      The “Romans” have both helmets according to Pixida from the Hermitage of the VI century.
      Ax - a rare ax from the Slavic settlement - Zimno, most likely the beginning of the VII century. About Zimno and other early Slavic fortifications - this is in the next article.
      I copied the details from the excise - that's why the stairs are like that.

    The development of the siege of the Slavs (according to available evidence in historical sources) shows how in a very short period of time they were able to master a rather complicated military craft,
    I admit, I didn’t look at this waste further. The brilliant idea of ​​historians at the moment is as follows. For thousands of years, the Slavs lived in the forest, prayed to the wheel and banged with a stone ax (one on all Slavic tribes) at the crown of the head.
    Then, in the divine West, the Greatest of the Great Western Civilizations flourished. The vile Slavs got out of their filthy forest and (in a "short period of time"), carrying their bloody idols at the ready, rushed to gut the western cities ...
    It is impossible to argue with such a "point of view". If your opponent does not show any signs of intelligence at all, then he cannot be persuaded. There is simply nothing to overpersuade. I do not advise you to waste time retelling the customer's manual. It can be read in many other "works" of this kind on various other issues. Let the author simply walk through the forest.

        I, I mean, not only you personally, but also many others, apparently Prince Vladimir forgot to withdraw.
        You, like the previous speaker (mikhail3), probably also "did not look". And, like him, a long time ago. And what they "looked" did not understand. However, I think that you most likely gained such confidence in the "incorrectness" of classical history not by studying the works of historians proper, but by tasting the fecal mass of what I call pseudohistory, meaning all kinds of fomenkov and other Samson-Petukhov's fetid cloaca.
        Do not believe them. They all lie and, first of all, they lie about what the real historical science says. All that nonsense that you deigned to voice sarcastically in your comment has nothing to do with the real story, and you probably know better where you got it from.

However, this approach on your part does not surprise me at all - the level of your intellect and knowledge in the field of the humanities has long been known to me, as to many here. Only that naive frankness with which you admit your own ignorance, considering it your indisputable merit, is surprising.

    The city had a double wall with a thickness of 2 to 4,6 m, a height of 8,5 to 12 m, which completely coincided with the theoretical settings prescribed in Poliorketiki.

            What should be is an assumption.
            The works indicate the parameters of the walls of Thessaloniki of the XNUMXth century
            The question hung: "Material of facing and inner backing?"

            In all existing fortresses, the walls were constantly changing, both in location and in design. Take, for example, changes in the design and layout of the walls of the Moscow Kremlin from the XNUMXth to the XNUMXth centuries.
            Compare Lyubshanskoe settlement and Old Ladoga, Izborsk and Porkhov. Pskov and Novgorod Kremlin.

            The questions are not idle, the knowledge of the answers will suggest why some fortifications were able to defend for a long time, while others were destroyed by small squads.
            The average abstract fortress is like a spherical horse in a vacuum.

                  About who they fought with - all the previous articles have now come to those. questions, then more about weapons will be, and further, the history of the centuries of the Slavs (with emphasis on military subjects) forward, something like this.

                        An important factor in historiography is the question of what interests society today on this historical topic.
                        I don’t know if you read an article about the work of prof. historians, I wrote in December.
                        The Second World War, too, at first part of the information was classified, "military tricks" were needed by themselves, military operations were studied at the Academies with the aim of using "if we can repeat", and what, can we say that they saw this case incorrectly, that is, the participants combat (organizers) taught future officers wrong? So, since then, nothing has changed - in the assessment of military operations. Yes, there is, for example, a rethinking of the Prokhorov battle, but ...
                        Or let’s say an estimate of the losses of the USSR in the Second World War is a slippery and contouring topic that requires research, right? but the claims in this case are not to the sources, but to the researchers.
                        If a historian of some 7th century studying nomads has no influence whatsoever, then a WWII historian can even fall under an article.
                        In the first millennium, differences in "interpretations" were no less.

                        Perhaps, but we will never know about it, therefore we should move within the framework of historiography and analysis of sources, there are questions to the sources - read in the original language, if you know it. Even in the preparation of this article, I had to check some sources with Greek originals,
                        I stated in this text not "my opinion", but the data of qualified historians-researchers, and not charlatans about whom they write in this chat,
                        Therefore, "interpretations" - as opposed to the stated - can only be from those who own historiography like me, and have not read one book on the topic, and reads sources in the original language, otherwise, these are fantasies about Russia, Etruscans, Slavs in 13 century BC etc.
                        And I understand and contrast: "my opinion", which everyone has the right to have, and "concepts" from amateurs, worse, from charlatans.

                        The most common problem for many historians is that they are not proficient in related disciplines. Often, the fact that for the humanities it is a non-negotiable truth, gleaned from academic sources, for many techies seems ridiculous and ridiculous, or at least provoking questions. Similar "bloopers" occur in cases when the Author has not been to the places of the described events, and often even did not analyze space images (by the way, a very useful resource if you know how to use it).
                        All of the above does not in any way detract from the importance of written sources and does not belittle the achievements of specialists working with them.

                        For example, I was in Istanbul, I had 4 times near the walls, 2 in Thessaloniki, twice on the Bulgarian coast (Byzantine places), etc.
                        You so boldly declare that someone owns archeology there, someone doesn’t, do you specifically think that I don’t own archaeological techniques and are not familiar with the historiography of archaeologists on this topic?
                        it will be more correct to write specifically, and which of the famous professional historians does not own archeology? appearances, passwords - give specifics.
                        According to the historiography of fortification: can you list the key archaeological work according to this particular article?
                        This is a rhetorical question - you still don’t know anything.
                        And here's a joke, here on the VO dispute arose more than once, and more than once: amateurs, apparently and in their specialization, tried to write something there on the subject of professional historians.
                        Someone wrote judging by the cars that are made in our country, it would be better if they were made by humanities.
                        But strange as it may seem, there are not a few historians with a world-famous reputation in Russia, but with techies it’s not very.

                        I don’t think so, but if in this vein, then using the often used algorithm for proving the lack of writing among the Slavs, I could formulate as follows: "If the article does not mention the data of historiography of archaeologists, then there is no knowledge on the topic."

          Fortified points in European provinces went to Byzantium from the Roman Empire. The walls of the fortifications were designed to confront the barbarians of the beginning of our era - the Celts and Germans, who did not possess wall-to-wall technologies.

          The standard wall was a masonry of limestone blocks of a meter thick, the reinforced wall was two parallel masonry with a sand-gravel mixture filling in between.

          Limestone blocks were perfectly pierced by Slavic wall-hung tools - vices made in the form of oversized carpentry goats, inside of which logs were suspended on leather belts with a comel forward with the possibility of pendulum swing. The goats were covered with shields to protect against arrows and spears (as well as soaked in water to protect against fire) and placed on wheelsets for thrust against the wall. Komel was upholstered in metal.

    As far as I remember, the Byzantine army was not enough for all borders. The organization of defense of the city of the Empire is a matter of exclusively citizens. In general, you need to judge that it was not professional. Organized, yes. But there were few warriors there.
    Yes, and even the Slavs had a traditional set of sieges for all the military of that time.
    Stairs, helipoles (siege tours-mobile towers made of wood), trebuchet catapults (according to Sinkell's descriptions)
    From the sea they used dugouts (boats from one piece of wood) and thus it was possible to turn a section of the sea into a kind of land and fill it with soldiers.
    In general, as the Byzantines themselves described, the Mother of God herself drowned all these pagan things. Under the walls of her temple. The storm is shorter. And the Byzantines themselves retreated in time. Maybe they just foresaw the weather.

    A very similar death of the Slavic flotilla on monoxyls in the calm sea is described in the collection of miracles of St. Demetrius of Solunsky. When at the turn of the XNUMXth – XNUMXth centuries the Slavs moved in a dugout to storm Thessaloniki.

    Ours about the siege of 626 was not. Contemporaries do not mention. But with the light hand of the Monk George Mtatsmindeli, who did not distinguish between the tribes, they began to dignify us all.
    The way the Slavs retreated was also traditional. Burn all property (siege weapons, dwellings, etc._) that interfere with a quick retreat
    Details can be found in Theodore Sinkell "On the insane attack of godless Avars and Persians on the God-protected City and on their shameful retreat thanks to the philanthropy of God and the Virgin"

    The Slavs, whose ancestors had practiced carpentry in the forest zone for several thousand years and traveled exclusively along rivers, did not cost anything when storming cities to build log cabins for assault towers and put them on rolling logs using river transfer technology.

    Some of the fortresses were taken by the Slavs by storm from the rivers or the sea, using plows, which were not Papuan pies (as the trumpers think with the term "monoxil"), but 20-meter sailing-rowing vessels with a collapse of the sides 2 meters wide, high-raised bow and stern extremities , spacer stiffeners, drop boards and upper deck made of planks.

    The base of the plows was made from a solid deck of wood several tens of meters high and at least a meter in diameter (three meters in coverage) by cutting logs to a thickness of 2 cm and then forming the body using water vapor and stretch marks.

    Only with such unique technologies for wood processing and the manufacture of large-scale structures from it, it was possible to squeeze all (except one metropolitan) European province from the Romans - Illyria, Pannonia, Tavria, Dacia, Thrace and Achaia.

He clearly and frankly says that SPLIT in the 17th century was a civil war for its faith against an alien Western religion and, accordingly, against a foreign elite that imposed its pro-Western culture on the Russian people.
                In fact, the Razin Rebellion and Streltsy riots are a RELIGIOUS war. And it was no less than the civil war of the 20th century.

    Informative! Indeed, the military affairs of the Slavs in the 6-7 centuries. developed by leaps and bounds., especially when compared with the Germans. The latter first encountered the Romans under Julius Caesar, and then for 5 centuries, until the fall of the Western Roman Empire in 476, they never learned to take cities and fortresses. Even the Ostrogoths, having conquered Italy, could not really learn this craft, which was demonstrated during the siege of Rome in 537.

        Greetings, Edward! As for the Germans, to be honest, the idea is not mine, I don't remember which of the researchers I borrowed. But at a superficial glance, it is fully justified. Let's take vandals as an example. The capture of Carthage, Rome and other cities was caused by the factor of surprise and the lack of resistance from the townspeople. And when the garrison and the townspeople entered the fight, as in Hippo-Regia, nothing "shone" to the vandals. As a result, they obliged the subordinate population of North Africa to tear down the fortress walls, recognizing their helplessness in the siege business. So are the Goths. They took possession of Rome as a result of betrayal. But in the future, all their attempts to expand the boundaries of the possessions in Gaul, stumbled upon the walls of cities: here and the unsuccessful siege of Narbonne, and repeated and unsuccessful attempts to capture Arles and the siege of Clermont, which also ended in failure. Often the Germans took cities by treason or starvation, like the Ostrogoths Rome and Milan, and the Lombards Titinus. Actually, they took possession of most of the Roman cities as federated allies (this is especially true of the Burgundians), but they did not demonstrate any great success in attempts to take them by storm.
        In general, it would be nice if you later highlighted this point - a siege among the Germans.

    It would be three floors so that archers and slingers could be placed in it - in a word, to build such a machine with which, he claimed, they would definitely take the city. "

    And with regard to shipbuilding, it is somehow doubtful that even at that time the Slavs had "serious" ships that could compete with the European ones.
    ... learned about the technical possibilities of building more complex ships.

      about the tower - no, not built, the next intervention of St. Dmitry and ... everything was gone.
      And with regard to shipbuilding, it is somehow doubtful that even at that time the Slavs had "serious" ships that could compete with European

      What do we know about shipbuilding and ships of European tribes and "barbarian" kingdoms for this period:
      1. Dominant - Roman Empire: they were the only sailors of the Mediterranean, continuous expeditions: Africa, Italy, Sicily, Spain, etc.
      2. Vandals were able to do something in Africa, but it was rather based on Roman shipbuilders, Sardinia pi Corsica belonged to them, earlier they devastated Greece, Italy and took Rome;
      3. I think that if someone had something, then everything was based on the Roman (Greek) tradition, so during the struggle for Italy the Goths tried to compete at sea, successfully took Sicily and Corfu in 551,552. But when the Byzantine fleet entered the business, that was it: they were defeated at sea.
      4. In the north, outside the influence of Constantinople, noble sailors Saxons, Angles and Utes, capturing England during this period;
      5. In Scandinavia, the “pre-Viking” period begins - Wendel - 7th century, ships to match the Vikings.
      6. Yes, I almost forgot, the second half of the 7th century. - Arabs, more precisely the sailors of Egypt and Syria in the service of the Arabs: they create a powerful fleet.
      Something like that.
      Of course, the Slavs against this background are not at all “noble sailors”, all the more so since the information about sea voyages is “precise”, but the fact that the Slavs could and used the ships more seriously than odnodrevki follows from their piracy on the Greek coast of the 7th century. , and the Lombards were sent to the Avars by the Italian ship masters at the beginning of the 7th century.
      But no more than that.

              Well .. So it turns out. Never a color printout remains untouched, and often does not help out, especially when you try to make a paper model ... NOT a paper assembly but a Model.
              What can I say. Now I don’t print in color. And expensive and pointless. Only color schemes are important.
              No less than the skill, knowledge and experience of a modeler.

    The point is not so much progress in the methods of capturing cities, but that, for example, the "Slavs" of Procopius and the "Slavs" of Theophylact are different "Slavs". The term "Slavs" is not an ethnonym. Procopius writes that the "Slavs" were formerly known as Sporoi. There are two main versions that this is distorted either Serbs or Spali (Spalei), but in this context it is not important, because both of these peoples are Sarmatian. Theophylact calls the Goths "the Slavs" (by his time the Ostrogoths and Gepids had already lost their statehood)

        Sarmatians are mestizos of Erbins (R1b) and Northern Semites (J2), and Serbs are mestizos of Aryans (R1a) and Northern Illyrians (I2).

        The Illyrians are the first representatives of Homo sapiens who came to the European subcontinent 50 thousand years ago. Arias came to Europe 12 thousand years ago, Erbins - 5 thousand years ago, Sarmatians - 2,5 thousand years ago.

          Based on "politically correct" theories, the Caspian steppes are considered the birthplace of R1a. In any case, it is present in significant quantities in all Sarmatian populations. Moreover, all of the above applies to R1b. And all because the very "fundamental" difference between R1a and R1b is also pure politics - the accepted classification divides absolutely speculatively different subclades of the same haplogroup into two haplogroups, and then a theory is built about an insurmountable ethnic and almost racial difference between their carriers, despite the fact that both are considered Indo "European". But the difference even according to this official classification is only in the 3rd sign. Most of all in this division of R1a and R1b I like the maps of their distribution in Europe, where the border between the territories where these haplogroups prevail strictly coincides with the borders of 1945 and the border of the "eastern" and "western" blocks

            In the Sarmatians, the number of carriers R1b and J2 is half and half, the proportion of R1a is at the level of 10%, carriers I2 are absent.

            The Serbs have the number of carriers R1a and I2 - half to half, carriers J2 are absent.

            The boundaries of the predominance of carriers R1a and R1b in Europe mainly formed 3300 years ago - see the battle in the valley of the Tollensee River.

              Modern Serbs have l2 just as a result of coming to the Balkans. Although, again, whom to mean by modern Serbs. The totality of citizens of Serbia, regardless of ethnic origin, or the Serbs themselves? But all modern research is carried out according to the first option (a set of citizens), and there is a deliberate substitution of the concepts of nation and ethnicity. And how are the data on modern populations, and even notoriously incomplete, related to the population in the VI century. There is simply no such data. In addition, in some Sarmatians, carriers of l2 are present, for example, in Cossacks (Khazars). They have them from Trypillians. And the same Cossacks have a lot of R1a.
              About the political separation of R1a and R1b, as well as the absolutely political border between them, I spoke, but I want to add that the leader in the post-Soviet space, the preacher of this separation - Klesov, is a US citizen. For me, this fact alone is a significant marker

                This refers to the genotype of modern Serbs, and not all residents of Serbia.

                What is the relationship between the Iranian-speaking Sarmatians and the Turkic-speaking Khazars, the time gap between which in terms of coming to Europe is more than 1000 years? Yes, and in the Khazars there are no carriers of R1b, one of the two main harmogharmy of Sarmatians.

                And did Klesov organize the battle in the Tollensee river valley? laughing

                  In the Russian Federation and in Ukraine, the study was carried out on a national, not an ethnic basis, so I reasonably doubt that it was different in Serbia. But this is not so important, because, in principle, what such information can shed light on is only the composition of the racial mixture of the modern ethnos (not even its proportions, this requires a more representative sample). And here again a return to the imaginary difference between R1a and R1b. The presence of any of these haplogroups in a racial mixture means the same thing - the Indo "European" component. And since they mean the same thing, the accepted classification is erroneous (and quite intentionally) and it is more correct to consider them as one haplogroup R1.

                  The Khazars are Sarmatians, and are mentioned in the S. Caucasus before the arrival of the Turkic peoples in Europe. The Türkic-speaking of the Khazars has never been proved by anyone. This is an assumption that for some reason is considered the most probable. Although it is not clear why. From the fact that they were somehow under the rule of the Türks? So under the authority of the Goths they were. And under the rule of many more

                  From the above about Tolensei - even if you interpret the data as the presence in the battle of two German factions of steppe warriors, they could act as mercenaries or subjects (albeit with a special status) on one or both sides (as often in the history of the Khazars or Alans of times VPN)

                    As for the separate classification of R1a and R1b, this is for geneticists.

                    In the 13th century BC in the Tollens region, people lived as clans and tribes in the Stone Age and fought with stone axes. The first natives of the Scandinavian Peninsula - the Cimbri (which formed German times) are reflected in the Roman annals only after 1200 years. There are no mercenaries or, especially, subjects under the tribal system by definition.

                      Such research is impossible without government or "transnational" support. Geneticists may be specialists, but they voice the conclusions that are convenient for their sponsors. What is the "official" Balanovskys, what is the "unofficial" Klyosov.
                      The Scandinavian Bronze Age began somewhere in 1800-1700. BC. By the 13th century BC Indo-Germans reached Hindustan. The whole sensationalism of Tolensee is that the scale of the battle directly indicates the statehood of the warring parties. Because only the state could organize and set up an army of a similar strength

                        Sanskrit in India is just from the Germans. Tilak already informed everyone more than 100 years ago. It's just that after the events of the 40s, it became inconvenient to remember this, and they immediately came up with a theory about the "steppe ancestral home" and began to use the politically correct term "Indo-Europeans"

                        Haplogroups with languages ​​are not connected at all in any way. Slavic was created in the IX century. based on East Germanic languages. Gothic in the first place. With the addition of Latin and Greek vocabulary. All the main components of Slavic are related to Sanskrit. Similarity to Sanskrit from Gothic, as in Lithuanian, Prussian, etc. But not a dialect anyway

                        The opus of Tilak is confirmed by reports of ancient authors. Jordan, for example, said that Scandinavia is the womb of peoples
