Chapter Summary

This chapter outlines some basic facts about the western part of the Slovene territory that belonged to Italy. The part of the present-day Slovene territory that started east of Italy was included in another supra-regional name in the Early Middle Ages: Avaria. Concerning the organisational structure of Old Slavic society in present-day Slovene territory in the Early Middle Ages, what we can assume and only very hypothetically is that it was largely organised within a tribe in župe, and that the kosezi certainly were not part of the župe, and neither were of course the prince's family and its property consisting of manors as the centres of agrarian units. Such manors were also owned by the kosezi, if we generalise the reconstruction of a kosez manor at the eastern edge of Ljubljana.

Keywords: župe; Avaria; Early Middle Ages; Italy; kosezi; Old Slavic society; present-day Slovene territory; western part
