Indo-European heritance in Baltic plant names, legends and folklore

Investigations into Baltic legends and folklore will be used as a source of information of inherited mythological concepts, especially myths associated with lakes and bogs which touches upon the role of music and musicians in the society, the location of the Otherworld and beliefs regarding the hereafter.

Other research projects will be studies in Baltic place names in a historical and mythological context and an Etymological Dictionary of Baltic Plant Names.
