Here is interesting article from an archeological magazine.
I have no health to translate it all by hand so I’ve used google translator and I’ve changed some parts. The translation isnt that bad to be honest!
I hope this will satisfy at least partialy you Drago.


“How Slavane colonized Skandinavia”

Slavic-Scandinavian contacts took place throughout the Viking era. Norman merchants and warriors then stayed on Polish soil.
Slavic goods were exported to the North. In time, the Slavic masses flooded Scandinavia. The testimony of those events are archaeological
sites and … contemporary Danish names of the villages.

For years, the Polish scientists didnt wanted to accept the fact that the Vikings were on the lands of the Piast dynasty.
Nationalist approach meant that the Viking was synonymous with Teuton. In this connection it must be considered only pejoratively.
Only in recent years we started to look differently on the visitors from the North. They are recognized not only as robbers but also merchants,
artists, or even allies and servants of Polish rulers. Produces as much controversy in the Scandinavian scientists reverse phenomenon,
that is, the presence of the Slavs in Scandinavia.

Honey, salt and vases

Underground storage of archaeological museum in Stockholm is a real maze. Magnetic cards and codes to open electronic locks, leading to
further sesame. Each room filled bookshelves, which put together the true treasures of the past. In one of them on the shelves are great
Viking swords and jewelry. Right next to the stand Friesian exclusive wine jugs and … Slavic dishes.
At the beginning, the Slavs and the Normans were joined by trade. Vikings contributed to the formation of trade emporia (settlement
Crafts bargain) on the south coast of the Baltic Sea. Perhaps through them goods produced by the Slavs were placed by the Baltic Sea.
The development of shipbuilding and shipping Slavic meant that the ark Vends also crossed the sea, passing on the way from knorrami
(commercial vessels) Scandinavians. Transported to the North sought them there good, which abounded Vendland (the land of the Slavs) –
salt and honey. On the way it is packed for ceramic vessels.
In the eighth and the first half of the ninth century of the goods exported to Scandinavia Vendlandia bubble put into a pot with a
curved outside the banks – the so-called. Feldberg type dishes. This pottery produced the Baltic population of the north-western areas
of the Slavs, lying between the Oder and Foam Warnow. Excavations confirmed that they were formed for example in Szczecin, Wolin, at the bottom
Parsęta and Mecklenburg.
In the second half of this century vases successfully attracted large aesthetic – the so-called Fresendorf type dishes. Produce them
Slavs living in a narrow strip of the Baltic coast of Mecklenburg in the west, to the mouth of the river Parsęta area in the east, as
well as on the island of Rügen.
Over time, the Slavic packaging have become popular in Scandinavia. Impact it could have on the technical quality and aesthetic
products potters from the southern coast of the Baltic Sea. Slavic dishes were in fact much better made and no doubt nicer than those of
its Scandinavian. Scandinavian pottery compared to the Slavic term may be established even primitive. Presumably because the pottery of
southern thought there even for a luxury.
