It is also known from legends that Kiev was co-founded by the brothers Kije and Chorivem (pronounced Horivem, each on its hill) and Šček (probably Forefather Čech) Even genetic and DNA evidence falls in line with the linear etymological/onomastic information because we now know conclusively that the ancestors of the Slavic speaking people could have been in Europe 4 thousand years ago, long before any recorded mention of the language they spoke.

This distinction between mythology and folklore can be blurry at times, however, such as in instances in which smaller tales become larger ones, like the development of famous fairy tales or the Arthurian legend. This is, of course, a simplification of a very large and complex system that covers all of the Korean tale types. Although the Archaic Maori is popularly called a 'Moa Hunter', the expression, with its economic overtones, is misleading as there were areas of the country populated by people from East Polynesia who would never have encountered the bird.

Twenty-seven also signified the number of warriors comprising a war-band, and the number of the members of a Celtic chieftain's royal court. It is even rumored by the peasants in the Dunk & Egg books that he can warg with the mist (exactly like Loki). This tradition which involved Croatian women tattooing themselves with Christian symbols and designs, so as not to be forcefully married off to Muslims or taken as slaves, has existed right up to this day even.

The first of these is documentary sources, or texts. The busy-bodies (they had some in those days as well as now) were set to wondering why he always kept a kihei, or mantle, on his shoulders; and for such a handsomely shaped, athletic young man, it was indeed a matter of wonder and speculation, considering the usual attire of the youth of those days.
