During the discussion at the seminar Professor Witold Hensel indicated the need to consider the ethnogenesis of the Slavs in a context that in the age of Europe's unification it would be not just European, but primarily worldwide. He emphasized the common cultural roots of the European peoples and expressed the opinion that in such discussions ignoring the non-European roots of the Slavs and placing too little importance to the common Indo-European origins of various peoples is a major omission. He also said that the question of historical sources on the Venetians is seldom discussed. Another point made during the discussion was the size of the original area from which the Slavs came in a paleodemographic context; considering the later numbers of Slavs, it is impossible for them to have come from a small territory (Lech Leciejewicz, Stanislaw Tabaczynski), the paleoecological context was also emphasized, the agrarian character of Slav economy excluding the possibility of their original homeland being located in an area not supporting agriculture (Marek Dulinicz). 1 Figure.
