this is what you're saying and the following is what I found out aboit it
Ah but it doesnt contradict anything i said! Danzing was populated by increasingly large German majority for the past 300 years! The issue is that it was populated by a Polish majority for another 700 years and was built by Poles!
That it was a free city or under Teutonic influence doesnt change the fact that for 2/3rds of its history it was populated and developed by Poles.
However this entire link is absolutely worthless and useless, it claims that we do not know when did the first settlement came to be when we have clear historical and archeological account of Mieszko I of Poland building a stronghold there, please post non-biased links that do not attempt to put across falsified history that fits your emotional views rather than historical facts :)
If your source ignores such an important fact as Poles building the first organized settlement there then its clearly a worthless and biased one.The origins of Gdansk
The first mention of Gdańsk comes from 999 years , and we find it in the " Lives of the Saints . Wojciech " which speak of the Christian mission of the bishop, sent to Eastern Pomerania will of Boleslaw the Brave . It ended with the death of Adalbert , however , the future saint. Name of Gdansk saved in this document is " Gyddanyzc ", showing Slavic origin . Hundreds of years later appeared as the German name Danzig - " Danzig" .
As is clear from the archaeological research in the second half of X in Gdańsk from a small fishing village began to grow in importance, the town and harbor. Founding of the city in the years 960-980 . Although fishing and agriculture was then widely developed , as evidenced by excavations , the main wealth of castles Pomerania , including Gdańsk was trade and shipping . Transported away furs, honey and wax , but by far the biggest interest was , of course, amber , after which traders came from the most distant countries.
We know when the Polish city of Gdańsk was built, we know even the height of the earth walls surrounding it and yet your incredibly biased source ingores one of the most basic and historically sound facts of Poles building the city, please stop the bias :)))
