Me poshte do te sjelle rrefimin e Simon Fitzsimonsit te vitit 1322:
Itinerary from Ireland to the Holy Land
ku ai na jep informacion te vlefshem per "sllavet" dhe "greket", ku perkatesisht ""sllavet""(korrigjim i mevonshem: "greket" ) paraqiten me plisa te bardhe ne koke , dhe po keta paraqiten me doke, zakone, veshje e sjellje te njejta me ato te shqiptareve . Pra sllavet dhe greket, nuk jane asgje me shume, vetem nje devijim religjioz nga trungu i etnise shqiptare(natyrisht me perzjeret perkatese)
And then after spending a few days, we passed through the city of Ulcinj, which belongs to the king of Rascia (2), and sailed to Durrës, a city once famous and mighty by land and sea, subject to the emperor of the Greeks but now belonging to the prince of Romania (3), the brother of the aforementioned king of Jerusalem (4), (this city) being in the province of Albania. It should be noted that Albania is a province between Slavonia (5) and Romania, having a language of its own and which the aforementioned schismatic King of Rascia has subjected to his rule. For the Albanians themselves are schismatics, using the rites of the Greeks and are entirely like them in their dress and manner. For like the Greeks, they rarely if ever wear the cowl, but rather a white hat lowered almost flat to the front and raised at the back so that their hair, the length and beauty of which they are extremely proud, may appear more attractive to the eyes of the beholder. The Slavs on the other hand, of whom mention was made above, wear a white hat, oblong and round, on the top of which their nobles stick a long feather in order to be distinguished and recognized more easily by the peasants and common people.
