    @Alain: I was talking about the leitmotif of Walter Pohl et al. Regardless of what they touch, about what they write, be it Germanics or Avars, its always the same kind of Marxist inspired, revisionist intepretation of history. Other scholars have to beat them to accept, with irrefutable, hardest evidence, to what any normal human being with just common sense would have assumed in the first place. And they constantly criticise others for not accepting their point of view, yet when disproven themselves, they go on as if nothing happened. As if they wouldn't have been wrong about virtually everything before and they start again to defend the next element of their strictly ideological positioning. Unless you can beat them to accept it, with absolutely irrefutable evidence, they never give in and distort your words.

    Well, when analysing the physical remains, it was clear that the rich burials being absolutely dominated by East Asian derived people. And now the genetic evidence points to that too:
    A genetic study published in Scientific Reports in January 2020 examined the remains of twenty-six individuals buried at various elite Avar cemeteries in the Pannonian Basin dated to the 7th century AD.[50] The mtDNA of these Avars belonged mostly to East Asian haplogroups, while the Y-DNA was exclusively of East Asian origin and "strikingly homogenous", belonging to haplogroups N-M231 and Q-M242.[51] The evidence suggested that the Avars were a patrilineal and endogamous people who entered the Pannonian Basin through migrations from East Asia involving both men and women.

    Of course there is an "Avar period Pannonian population" and there are "Avars in the narrower sense". But the vast majority of the former never became Avars, you see it in the remains, not just that they were clearly European derived with practically no admixture, but also in their settlements and grave goods. They were just local inhabitants under a new rule and the rulers were the Avar minority, to which ranks, over time, some rose too. But there was no large scale Avar identity which encompassed them all. Which is why "the Avars" disappear almost completely from the record after defeat, just like that, while many local Slavic (R1a), Germanic (I1) and Roman provincial lineages (like E1b guys) might have survived up to this time, or at least into the Hungarian period.
    In the Hungarian period something similar happened, but the Hungarians were more numerous, started with the integration of the locals earlier, and of course they formed a real state and adopted a Christian, writing culture, with a sophisticated, German helped administration and state. This resulted in their ability to transform the majority of the population to a Hungarian identity over time, but even then it needed time.
    The Avars never managed to do that, they always kept their warrior-pillager lifestyle, which just pressed the majority of the locals into submission, with more booty coming from raids abroad, as long as they were winning. Their tools to gain this superiority was the stirrup and excellent horsemanship, as well as the political and financial contacts to the East, especially the Byzantines.
    When their opponents adapted and the support from allies was lost, they were losing their position as well and had no roots in the regions.

    I try not to blame anyone, just it's disappointing that people, history, archeology and genetics use it for their political purposes. It is important to me that the truth just comes out and that all people get to know their and other history without any political tendency but unfortunately that doesn't always work, I know the paper from 2020, there is nothing wrong with it and of course everyone can make hypotheses, only if a scientific magazine refutes or agrees you have to look at it of course

    It looks like these E-V13 guys were newcomers there, from Carpathian-Pannonian plain.

    this image is showing that closest relatives to modern Bulgarians are probably Greeks ( and Macedonians of course )
    I agree that northern greeks especially those from Macedonia and Thrace are closer to Bulgarians and N.Macedonians. But keep in mind that it depends the city/region. Those from Serres, Thessaloniki are more Slavic. Those from xalkidiki, katerini are not So Slavic.

The people below them were oftentimes used like cattle and the Slavs pretty much hated the Avars for this, as is evident from the fact that a major reason for many Slavic expansions was that they tried to evade and fled from the Avars, as well as that there were numerous uprisings against their rule. In battle the Avars often used the Slavic foot soldiers as cannon fodder, putting them in the first ranks to lure the enemy and to take its missiles, to bind them in melee, before they themselves attacked with their elite cavalry units in a shock attack. The Avars were in Central Europe among the first to use stirrups:


    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stirrup

    One of the first Slavic empires was founded with the help of a Frankish merchant, called Samo, who subsequently defeated both the Avars and the Franks with the united Slavic army of his rule:
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Samo%27s_Empire

    The bad relationship between Avars and Slavs also explains, in part, why "the Avars" largely disappear after their military defeat, namely because the Slavs were glad that they got rid of them, because they were regularly used as cannon fodder, pressed, pillaged and even raped by the Avars, which is all written down in the historical records of the Avar rule. And again, this was an important factor for the many Slavic tribes to move, because they wanted to get away from the Avars, beyond their reach.
    There is also a second theory about Samo's origins. Today, other interpretations are more secondary, but they are quite numerous. So, contrary to the information in the Fredegar Chronicle, Samo is seen as a Slav, mainly due to some information in the Conversio Bagoariorum et Carantanorum (see below the section on the geographical location). Recently, the word Samo has sometimes been viewed as an old Slavic title: Samo should mean “master” or “autocrat”, especially since “samo-” means “self-” in Slavic languages. But there are also already outdated views that Samo is an abbreviation of the Slavic name Samoslav. So some of them cannot exactly determine their origin, despite the Frankish ban, they delivered weapons to the Slavs, almost like a negotiator

    @Hawk: Yes, fits into the general picture. Especially this quotation is interesting:
    Metal objects are rare in the Svilengrad pit complex. Among them figures an inter-esting iron instrument classified as a trunnion axe. Its shape allows its identification as a chisel of type III 1 C (Wesse). The distribution of this type is dated the period between the eleventh and seventh/sixth century BC and encompasses the western Balkans and the Carpathian basin; single finds are known from Slovenia and Middle Dnepr region.33 The finds of iron trunnion axes/chisels in Bulgarian territory are limited and mainly without clear provenance. Most of them were found in North Bulgaria. Only three samples are known south of the Haemus Mountains: from Omarchevo, Ada tepe and Dositeevo.

    I can still imagine that there will still be some genetic investigations about the Avars so far there have been three (three papers), clearly the origin is East Asian but mixed individuals were found in some Hungarian graves, which probably heralds the later phase of the Avar period. The Lombards were an Elbe-Germanic tribe and had an influence on what is now northern Italy, as the name "Lombardy" reveals

    Nobody claims they didn't mix with locals, actually I was quoting the chronicles which claimed they did, but first look at which way (by force quite often) and secondly that doesn't make the idea of an "Avar amalgamation" more true. There were just different ethnicities in the (true) Avar sphere of influence.
