Chapter Summary

The major point of the prevailing metanarrative of the 'Slav migrations', which completed its formation in the 19th century, was that the Slavs arrived in an 'empty house', the depopulated lands whose inhabitants were either exterminated or displaced due to the period of migrations in the last centuries of the Roman Empire. The relative security of Illyricum in the period of the early to middle Roman Empire provided an opportunity for significant economical advancement of the area, especially in the Pannonia and Dalmatian littoral. From the archaeological evidence and itineraries from Late Antiquity, scholars have detected an establishment of an entirely new system of habitation in Dalmatia in c. late 4th/early 5th centuries.
