Description - The Early Slavs by P.M. Barford

During the early mediaeval period the Slavs expanded from their original homeland in the Ukraine to colonize vast areas and to found most of the modern nations in Eastern Europe. With first-hand knowledge of the archaeology and other sources, the author creates a vivid picture of daily life in early mediaeval Eastern Europe from the early 5th to the end of the 10th century AD, a period of profound transformation. The final chapter sets the early mediaeval developments into the perspective of the history and culture of modern Europe. A series of specially compiled maps chart the main cultural changes taking place over six centuries in this little known part of Europe.
