The book recounts the history of the Baltic people relying on archeological sources: provides an objective linguistic history and a description of the Baltic languages as well as an original and fresh insight into mythology in the ancient history of the Baltic peoples. With its numerous maps und figures this book is an unparalleled and original cultural exploration of the past of the Baltic people.
