ĖGLUPIAI


Sūduva is still full of Sūdovians
& some Yotvingians !!!

Lineal genetic descendants of Jotvingians. DNA doesn't Lie. People Lie.
The  Yatvings never really "vanished".

DNA doesn't Lie. People Lie.

It is very popular now in Lithuania to refer
to Pre-Christian Sūdovians as "Jotvingians".
The primary distinction now is religious
and does not consider ethnicity, nor the genetics of DNA.

The Vawkavysk area "LOKI BOUND" pendant, with it's Gotland influence, similar to / but not identical, to one found with other Viking artfacts at Gnezdovo by Smolensk. The Gnezdovo "mask" pendant resembles the Snaptun Stone of Loki. The LOKI bound pendant is also refered to as "the gripping beast".

By the 18th Century, most Sūdovians
and Yotvingians were either bi- or tri-lingual,
and thus not identified when speaking
Lithuanian, Polish, or Belarussian.

They converted, went to church,
and inter-married with others.
This is how
Játvįgs Jotvingians "vanished".

There may still have been old speakers
as late as the 19th Century in the
remote
Białowieża Forest area.

A census by clergy in Belarus at
that time revealed 31,000 church members
identified themselves as "Yatviags".

Specific embedded hallmark symbols [ C + Ͻ ] in the blade, link it to a sword from Stavne, near Trondheim Norway, and a sword from the Rapola Matomäki cemetery in Finland - and one from Limerick, Ireland ( #1864, 1-27 3 in the British Museum  ) !
