The Early Slavs: Culture and Society in Early Medieval Eastern Europe

by P. M. Barford
 

Overview 
 More than 270 million people in Europe speak one of the many Slavic languages and dialects, but the origins and development of Slavic culture are still among the most difficult problems facing archaeologists. P.M. Barfordas book is a remarkably comprehensive and accessible synthesis of the most recent archaeological discoveries, linguistic research, and literary-historical evidence, gleaned in the wake of recent political changes in Eastern Europe, has been unavailable in English. During the early medieval period, the slavs expanded from their original homeland to colonize vast areas and to found most of the modern nations in Eastern Europe. With Barfordas first-hand knowledge of the archaeology and other research, The Early Slavs vividly portrays daily life in Eastern Europe from the early fifth to the end of the tenth century A.D., a period of profound transformation. Barfordas rich survey provides the latest thinking on issues central to ongoing and sometimes fierce debates about the origins of various Slavic nations.
