It will also be disliked by some? Lithuanians because it definitely proves that Lithuanians were not autochthons in Prussia but colonists.
Obsolete fantasies. What Mortensens "definitely proved" was refugees returning home after 200 years of wars with teutonic knights after 1422 pease of Melno, which in fact was the first division of Lithuania.
Archaeology, linguistics and historical sources definitely prove Lithuanian nation, language and state cradle was in the left Nemunas bank.
For years I have been looking for evidence that Lithuanians in East-Prussia were autochthons. I haven't found any. Exactly what evidence do you have?
What kind of evidence you need? First and simplest evidence is that jetwingi is misspelled lietuvininkai just without L in the beginning.
Mendowe (Mindaugas) king of Lithuania was of lietuvninkai stock and lived in lietuvninkai country until 1260 (cronica Polonia Maioris).
