THE ART OF WAR OF THE EARLY SLAVS (6TH-7THC. A. D.)

 

 

This study deals with the development of warfare among the early Slavs during 

the 6th and 7th c. A. D. Its main focus is based on the equipment, the tactic, the 

art of ship building, the use of the horse, the art of siege and the fortifications. The 

testimony of sources is critically viewed with respect to the above questions, while 

with regard to the equipment a number of archaeological data is also added. The 

conclusions reached, attribute to a large degree the development of the early Slav 

warfare to contacts with nomadic tribes, and the Avars in particular, with whom 

they conducted common attacks in Byzantine territory. In certain cases, the 

extensive use of the horse by the Slavs is attested, as against the traditional view 

that they usually fought as foot soldiers, and the absence of fortifications among 

the Slavs of the Lower Danube. The use of the Slavic light spear by the Byzantine 

army is also noticed.
