Historical Development

Levzeish literature

The earliest known writings in the area now considered Burgundie are from the northern Levzeish nomads some of whom, after a few hundred years on the Ipar, formed permanent settlements. The earliest known piece of Levzeish writing is written in a primal Latinic like language known as The Laws of the Harbor. The crude document details an agreement between the Levzeish townsfolk and a Latinic trader. This and a few other documents in Levzeish are part of an "aspirational tradition", meaning that the Levzeish adopted more advanced systems in order to try to compete in the changing world in which they lived. This reactionary style of culture ultimately spelled their doom as Latinic then Bergendii cultures ideologically and physically quashed the Levzeish.
