Random quote: "Kitos tautos, mūruose, uolose užsirakinusios, vos ne vos išgelbėjo savo liuosybę, lietuviai ir žemaičiai, gyvendami giriose ir laukuose, mokėjo ja ilgą laiką džiaugtis ir nuo visų baisiausių savo neprietelių saugoti viena savo narsybe ir kantrybe." Simonas Daukantas, "Istorija žemaitiška" (1837)

I am student of the Gdańsk University and I wrote essey on Women in medieval society of Prussians (more or less until 13th century). I wanted to compare customs between Prussians and Lithuanians as they arevey closly kin. But I Could have found any sources about treating women in tribal Lithuania. I would actually focus on such things as (if they existed in Lithuania at all):

-the ritual of burning women after the death of her husband;
-sale of women as an act of marriage;

I would be very grateful if You would like to give me any advice where to find (I am so shamed that I even do not try to ask you for quotation it directly in email ). I hope my English is not so bad Yoy will have any problems with understanding.
