Wenzel, Walter: The Slav Colonisation of the Schlieben Area in the Light of Place and Personal Names, As Well As Finds From Excavations


Lětopis Abstract 2012 1: Wenzel, Walter: The Slav Colonisation of the Schlieben Area in the Light of Place and Personal Names, As Well As Finds From Excavations

The small state of Schlieben, formerly the administrative authority of Schlieben, borders on the western part of Lower Lusatia and belonged until 1990 to the old district of Herzberg. The area was already the subject of an investigation into the names and the history of its settlement as the subject of a dissertation about 50 years ago. The progress that has been made in the meantime in the study of German-Slav names and in archeology, has led to new discoveries both in the explanation of certain place names as well as the dating and extent of Slav colonization. Because of the natural circumstances of this region the Schlieben basin represents an ideal early medieval settlement area for study, in which around 800 Slavs settled. They probably came from Lower Lusatia, as the pagus Zliuuini, first mentioned in 973, shows a close connection to the pagus Luzici in terms of name typology.
