To sum up my thoughts concerning the prehistory of the Curs, I propose the following: their forefathers were the Curonians, a Baltic tribe, who had, just as *here*, learned from the Vikings to sail and go war at sea. They made an alliance with the Finns in the 11th century (something like that has existed even *here*) when both nations were threatened by invasive North Slavs, the former by Skuodians and the latter from the ancestors of the Nashs. The Curonians were the dominating part of that alliance because of their power on the seas, and founded some naval bases in the Finnish S coast. Later, the Curonians having lost some big battle against Skuodians (on the dry land, I presume) started a mass move to the colonies. Here they rose a flourishing culture based by merchandise, fishing and ship building. They could stop the threatening Nash invasion, and their prestige was high among the Finns, which explains the large Finns substrate in the language of the ethnic mixture that became the Curs. Fist the Hanseatic League was strong enough to make end to the Curs merchandise power. After the fall of the Curs in the economical sector they were quite a piece of cake for the Swedes in the 14th century. [J.S. Junttila]
