Would anyone ever tried to find out if "slonina" was originally extracted from elephant meat?
Is this the same what is in Serbian `slanina`? i suppose so
Yes it is from elephant, too bad we killed them all :-/
There is much more in it then possibility that elephants were all eaten, in the vicinity of Poles.
This could be taken as one of proofs that ancestors of modern day Poles originally populated Poland from the Balkan along the Danube river. Then, if we have `feed-back` of the word `slonina` - `slanina` on direction South-East to the Northern Europe (and if it is for sure based on the elephant meat), we can, by the evolution of language, say that this could be proof that speaks in the favor of Slavic autohtonicity in Europe.
Spot this... one of oldest Europe`s Mammoth`s skeletons is found in Serbia (500.000 years old), on Balkan (that was Ice age refugium during periods of glaciations; refugium means that it was place where was warmer climate and was possible for human civilization to exist in Europe during Ice age; when Ice age finished people started to disperse deeper in continent- always (!), preferable along rivers)Mammoth skeleton pulled from Serbian mineMarko Drobnjakovic, The Associated Press

Serbian archaeologists on Friday used heavy machinery to move a female mammoth skeleton -- believed to be one million years old -- from an open mine pit where it was unearthed nearly five years ago.
Serbian archaeologists say Vika is a southern mammoth, or mammuthus meridionalis, one of the oldest species found in Europe, which originated from northern Africa and did not have fur.
