m pl the Biarmians; [the Biarmians inhabited the country on the shores of the White Sea, northwest of the river Dwina. Alfred calls them Beormas. They were called Biarmians by Icelandic historians, and Permiaki by the Russians, and now Permians. In the Middle Ages, the Scandinavian pirates gave the name of Permia to the whole country between the White Sea and the Ural. In an Icelandic manuscript on geography, written in the 14th century, Beormia and two Cwenlands are located together.]
