Description
Summary:Samuel Szádeczky-Kardoss and his co-authors spent many years on the written sources on the Avars. Translations and commentaries were published in Hungarian in two volumes. In the published material are mostly narrative sources on the political events. Short geographical reports were omitted. In this paper I focus on three medieval geographical works mentioned the Avars: Anonymous of Ravenna, the Frankish Cosmography and the Ebstorf map. The first and second are contemporary sources (7–8th c.), but the map was constructed in the 13th century. These short sources help to complete and specify our knowledge on the history and medieval historiography of the Avars.
