      Yes, fun, that's why I'm here!

      But I'm still surprised!

      I understand that White Croats left what was recently called Halychyna
      (Galicia)-SE Poland/W Ukraine, but didn't think this area went west of about
      Cracow. Croats from Bohemia? Is this thought to be the origin of the Red

      Also , from where south did Slavs enter Bohemia? I have heard of
      Slavic settlements as far west as Regensburg,Bavaria in the south, and even
      supposedly Hamburg Bremen in the north!

      I'd like to learn more about these issues.
