    It's a good scene with children playing near the Mound. The Kurhan Slavy is a popular tourist destination in Minsk.

In fact, Ukraine - the likely birthplace of Slavs - has a lot of fertile soil. It' could be one of the reason for a great number of Slavs in the Iron age who popuplated entire eastern Europe at some stage.


    Monk Nestor of Kiev wrote a chronicle about Slavs in 1113. He was Christian writing negative things about neighbouring Slavs who were pagan and positive things about Drevlyans and Polians that were first baptised living around Kiev. I suspect Roman historians stating we were undeveloped because we were pagan. Back in the days Christianity was an important part of any European community.

    Geralt remained silent. Tired, he had nothing to say. “How... How will it happen?” he asked her at last, coldly and without emotion. “I will take you by the hand,” she replied, looking him straight in the eye. “I will take you by the hand and lead you across the meadow, through a cold and wet fog.” “And after? What is there beyond the fog?” “Nothing,” she replied, smiling. “After that, there is nothing.”

    Slav and Slave is coincidental as Piotrus pointed. Our self identification is Sloveni (in plural) . Most common etymology of Sloveni is from 'Slovo' - 'word'. We named Germans - niemcy . Numb people. The common explanation of 'niemcy' are people speaking a language which Slavs could not understand.

    Lithuanians called Belarusians Gudai. The etymology of the term is language of people which Lithuanians could not understand.

    I really meant that I have no clue about linguistics, but I can make cool conclusions, at least at the level a novice tries to explain population genetics
