During the 19th ct. in the town of Bol lived a large Vuković family of 6 brothers.

3 of them were priests and the other 3 were successful naval captains.

The brothers owned a fairly large sailing ship which successfully traded the Mediterranean and earned them a great wealth.⬇️
They lent a lot of their money to citizens of Bol; among them there was a guy names Marko with nickname Sila (Force) cause of his fierced nature.

Marko owned a considerable piece of land and as he could not repay his debts, he sold it to the Vukovićs piece by piece. ⬇️

Dalmatia through history.
Part III:

In previous 2 threads you could have read:
1) about the therm Dalmatia and what it meant in the time of creation
2) what was left of her after crash of Roman authority and arrival of Slavs

In this "sequel" we will see how Dalmatia, from the scattered cities and islands, has become what we consider Dalmatia today.

I will also explain where the historical pretensions of the Italians to Dalmatia came from.

Let's go in order.
Everything we do and don't know about Dalmatia in the period of 2 centuries after the arrival of the Slavs, ie the end of organized Roman rule and written news about the events in it can be underlined and summarized by the provisions of the Peace treaty in Aachen, signed in 812.

Retour ce soir des #BRAC balade de reconnaissance des aménagements cyclables, en heure de pointe, spéciale #coronapistes, en format très réduit pour assurer la distanciation physique des participants.
Reconnaissance des aménagements réalisés à l'ouest d'#Amiens : avenue Salvador Allende à la Hotoie puis avenue Georges Pompidou. Très bonne impression globale sur ces larges pistes créées, de nombreux cyclistes croisés ravis, et une circulation automobile qui reste très fluide 👌
On a bien suivi les conseils de @p_rifflart sur le parcours en repositionnant les séparateurs 😉
