The Proto-Slavic Tribes
Part One (A)
276 pages (in Bulgarian)
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)
A clear definition is proposed for the usage of terms as Proto-Slavs, Proto-Slavic Period (Era), Proto-Slavic language.
