The replacement of the Oksywie culture by Wielbark culture in the areas surrounding the mouth of the Vistula is sometimes linked to Jordanes' account of the migration of the Goths from Scandza (Scandinavia), when the Scandinavians marched under the flag of their King Berig to defeat the Rugians and the Vandals, the Vandals generally being associated with the Przeworsk culture).

Archaeological research of last decades near Pomerania in Poland suggests the transition of Oksywie culture into Wielbark culture was peaceful. Its timing coincides with the appearance of new population of Scandinavians in a previously uninhabited area ("no man's land") between the Oksywie and Przeworsk culture areas (Kokowski 1999). It appears likely that the new population which appeared on southern coast of the Baltic in the early first century AD catalyzed the transformation of Oksywie culture into Wielbark culture and can be identified with the Berig party described by Jordanes. The area where they settled suggests that Berig could be invited to defend the tribes known as Oksywie culture against their southern (probably Vandal) neighbors.
