The Early Slavs in the Light of Linguistics and Archaeology. The study tries to cope with the contradictory results of linguistic and archaeological research relating to the complicated Slavic ethnogenesis by pointing to one of the possible ways of solution. The relatively long duration of a uniform Slavic language in the Early Middle Ages, to which there corresponds the relative uni¬formity of the early Slavic culture in the 3rd quarter of the 1st millennium A.D. (Prague tape, Korčak and Peňkovka cultures), documents the very late culminations of the Slavic ethnogenesis — at about the middle of the 1st millennium A. D. Together with historical Slavs there appeared in the 6th cent. a new culture com¬plex lacking any immediate pre-stage of development. Cultures having preceded in its territory (Zarubincy, Przeworsk., Chernyakhov) participated in its earliest phases of development only partially through contact areas which appears most distinctly in the tale derivates of the Zarubincy culture which occurred in the area of the Baltic hydronomy. Tins observation is in accordance with the fact that Slavs developed in the Baltic-Germanic-Iranian contact area with a prevailing Baltic component.
