Mysterious Ancient Notebook Found by Archeologists

At one of the digging sites in Pskov city, in the 15th century layer archeologists have found a leather cover with a waxen wooden plate inside of it.
      The object is presumably a waxen plate that served a sort of a personal notebook in the olden days.
      Such wax-covered plates are known from excavation works in Novgorod and West European cities. The description of the Pskov finding, its photos and pictures will be sent to Novgorod to be studied by experts.
      Those waxen tablets, called tsera, are plates made of wood or bone with a hollow filled with wax, on which one could write with a special metal stick.
