How do we know what everyday life may have been like during the Middle Ages of Russia? Astounding discoveries of birchbark writings were made in 2003, letters which tell of life in the city of Novogorod, one of the few urban centers in the area to escape the Mongol invasions. The city's past is also explored through 10th and 12th century cathedrals and icons. This film's fictional re-enactments bring to light imagined scenes from Novogorod's illustrious past.
