“A Land of Forests and Swamp.” The image of Lithuania in
Medieval Europe

Kęstutis Gudmantas | ldkistorija.lt 2017 july 11 d. 12:41

“Lithuania [Lectonia] is a province of Scythia, and its
people are called Lithuanians. They are towering and strong,
warlike and savage people. Lithuania is a land of fertile
soil; much of it is swampland and covered with forests,
watered with rivers and lakes; there are many beasts and
animals there. The forests and swamps protect it; other than
the lakes, forests and swamps, they have few fortified
places [settlements]. And this is why it is doubtful whether
this area could be conquered in summer, perhaps only in
winter, when the rivers and other bodies of water are frozen
over.”
