Monthly Lunch Meeting

For our 8th Monthly Lunch Meeting Jos Schaeken will present his paper: "Birch-bark Literacy from Medieval Russia: Contents and Contexts."

In this talk, he will introduce a unique collection of private correspondence from Medieval Russia. The documents — written on small pieces of birch-bark — give us a direct insight into every-day life in Novgorod between the middle of the eleventh and fifteenth century.

Everyone who is interested is welcome to attend on Friday 8 December in room 1168/005 from 12 to 1.
