Blurb/Shorttext:
The Baltic peoples (the Baltics, the Balts) began to form approximately at the end of the first millennium BC, after falling away from the Slavic-Baltic community, before that they were part of the ancient Indo-Europeans, which were formed within the "Great Steppe" - from the Southern Urals to the Black Sea coast. Most likely, the word "Balts, Balts" comes from the word "white" - in Latvian balts, in Lithuanian balta. As a scientific term it was suggested in 1845 by the German linguist Georg Nesselman, professor of the University in Königsberg, instead of the term "Lithuanians". The Balts (Baltic tribes), settled in the 1 millennium AD, the territory from the south-west of the Baltic to the upper Dnieper and the Oka river basin (Goli), at the turn of 1-2 millenniums became part of the Old Russian people. The Western Balts (Zemgale, Zemgale, Kurshi, Latgaly) are the ancestors of modern Latvians and Lithuanians. This book has been translated with Artificial Intelligence.
