The main goal of this research is to clarify the migration process from the Balkan-Carpathian lands during the 1st and 2nd centuries A.D. As a condition sine qua non for the understanding of the stages of this process is the detailed reconstruction of the tribal structure of the proto-Slavic (or Thracian) territories during the pre-Roman Era.

The historical sources used for the research have various origins:

  • Written sources (narrative, documental, epigraphic)
  • Toponymic
  • Cartographic
  • Archaeological
  • Ethnologic
  • Dialectological

A clear definition is proposed for the usage of terms as Proto-Slavs, Proto-Slavic Period (Era), Proto-Slavic language.

The chapter The Tribes is focused on the reconstruction of diverse tribal structures and their historical destiny. The paragraphs that deal with every separate tribe are organized as “nests” – on the basis of the linguistic origin of the tribal names. They follow alphabetical order. The present volume comprises the tribes and the related names starting with the letter "A".
