Birchbark Day First Time Celebrated in Novgorod Region

Today the Novgorod Region for the first time celebrates the Birchbark Day dedicated to the first find of a medieval birchbark manuscript in Novgorod on 26 July, 1951.
      Flowers have been laid today to the grave of archeologist Nina Akulova, who found the first birchbark manuscript in Nerevsky archaeological pit, as well as to the grave of the well-known Novgorod restorer and researcher Vladimir Povetkin.
      In the course of excavations in Novgorod more than a thousand birchbark manuscripts have been found. The most ancient of them date back to the period of the 11th-13th centuries. The thousandth birchbark manuscript was found in Troitsky Pit in 2010.
