The 10th-14th centuries is a period of formation of Slavic states and their borders. This concerned both state and internal borders (provinces, smaller principalities, tribal territories). Changes of the borders were very rarely carried out peacefully - they usually took place as a result of bloody conflicts and fights. In many cases, Slavic peoples expanded at the expense of other, non-Slavic peoples. This session extremely widely shows conflicts between Slavs and neighboring communities.
