Chapter Summary

By the end of the third quarter of the first millennium, a perceptible stagnation in the demographic dynamics of eastern Europe took place. The local population of the Carpathian-Danubian area fully profited from the pax Chazarica for almost two centuries. Regarding the presentation of the Carpathian-Danubians area in Armenian geographic writings, the latter specify that the Tyras (Dniester) separated Sarmatia from Dacia, and that "the large country of Dacia," was inhabited by Slavs, who had had 25 tribes. Between the ninth and eleventh centuries, in northern Moldavia the Romanians and the Tivertsians had Croats as their neighbours, who lived on the upper courses of the Dniester and Prut rivers. The result of John Tzimiskes' campaign in the summer of 971 was also of a great importance for the outer-Carpathian area, which became a direct neighbour of the Byzantine Empire.
