Slavs lived in small villages consisting mostly of relatives. They farmed the land, growing a variety of grains and vegetables. These peoples also hunted their thick woodlands for meat.
Slavic villages were made up of beautifully built log homes. These log homes were skillfully carved with pictures of animals, flowers, and gods, and would be considered comfortable, even by today’s standards.
The Slavs were generally a peaceful people, usually fighting only to maintain their lands, not to expand them further. They often depended on outside armies, such as the Vikings, to help protect them.
