Unknown Manuscript of Novgorod First Chronicle Discovered in Berlin

Researchers of the History Faculty of Saint Petersburg State University have found an unknown copy of Novgorod First Chronicle in the Manuscript Department of the State Library of Berlin.
      
      "This manuscript is unique for the fact that it contains excerpts, which had been lost in all other Chronicle copies found before" - said Alexander Mayorov, Doctor of History and Head of Museology Department of History Faculty in St. Petersburg University.
      
      Dr Mayorov emphasized that the found manuscript with the ornate cursive writing on 169 sheets completely reproduces the ancient text of Novgorod First Chronicle and has no visible damages.
      
      The Novgorod First Chronicle is considered one of the oldest monuments of Russian writing of annals.
