Historians know that Albanians came from the Caspian Sea, near Caucasus.
Albanians have NOTHING to do with Illyrians
The Albanians are from the Caucasus, originally. Caucasian Albania was located on the eastern area of the Caucasus
between the Caspian sea and the tips of the mountain ranges.
Old Albania was known only for wild dogs and barren snow covered mountains, for which it received the name Albania by
Turkish name for the Albanians is "Arnauti", which means "those who have not returned"..... And they truly did not
return, they stayed in Serbian and Byzantine lands.
Majority of Serb, Croats, and Bosnians (slavized Illyrians) are of Illyrian origin while one has to doubt the Illyrian origin of the Albanians (Latin influence in Albanian is from medieval Romanian and not ancient Latin Dalmatian dialect).
Also Albanian Ghegs (Tosks are in reality albanized Greeks) culturally and
even racially are close to Chechens and their culture is without any doubtwestern Asian in origin (Azerbaijan) and first written text in Albanian in Balkans occurred in 15 century (laws of Leka Dukagin).
According the racial anthropology majority of 'Slavs' in former Yugoslavia are not of Slavic origin while Montenegrin Serbs are racially the purest Illyrians(as a result of great racial similarity between them and Dorian tribe of Sfakia in SW Crete). Also the Montenegrins like Illyrians are tall and warlike while Albanians were always controlled by someone and were the last nation in the Balkans to get FREED from their semikin the Turks and whose state was created as a direct influence of Austro-Hungary and Germany.
Up until 19 century (until the so called 'Illyrian movement' in Croatia) sense of being Illyrian was widespread among Croats and Bosnians but after the 'Illyrian movement' in Croatia the Austro-Hungary forbade is very mention. Under direct influence of German and Austrian scientists the 'theory' was launched (for the first time ever about the "Illyrian" origin of the cultural backwater of Europe called Albanians whose culture in way is reminiscent of highly Romanized Dalmatia (gravitational center of ancient Ilyria) whose population is racially clearly the mixture of Illyrians (Montenegrin like people) and Romans while majority of Ghegs are mixed with Turks and seem to be of their origin and appear in Balkans with them.
Albanians have less Illyrian blood in them than do Serbs, Croats, and Bosnians and are in reality a newcomers in the Illyrianregion. As such they have absolutely NO claim on Serbian holy land of Kosovo. Serbs are the true children of Illyrya.
