There is some debate among historians about where the Slavs originated. Many believe that they were early farmers who cultivated the fertile lands around the Black Sea. Others believe that they came from present day eastern Poland.
By 500 A.D., the Slavs had separated into three main groups. Each of these three groups shared a similar set of beliefs and a similar lifestyle.
If we have our own "why" of life, we can bear almost any "how."
Friedrich Wilhelm Nietzsche
Until 1896, drivers in Great Britain had to warn of their presence by having a person precede their car on foot, waving a red flag.
