My name is Peter and I am singer/guitarist and also main lyricist of the Latvian pagan metal band SKYFORGER. With our band we are trying to shed some light on history, traditions and folklore of Baltic people: Latvians, Lithuanians and Old Prussians. I decided to make this blog, where I could give more insights about things I am writing in my lyrics and tell something more about history of Balts.
Few things about me:
I am not a professional historian, but history is one of my strongest life passions. I have gone through great piles of books, documentary films and the like, and thus have formed my own views on the past from doing so. Though I am not one of those crazy scholars who come up with really sensational ideas taken out of this world!
As not being historian myself I will mostly use sources and authors which in my view will fit the best for themes I want to share here. And in the end I must apologize in advance for my English, as it is not my native language.
So, I hope you will enjoy my writings and maybe will find some new information about things which is hardly known beyond borders of Baltic States.
