Canvas Empire: a spatial history of the Russian Empire

part 1: in search of a legend

This story begins with a confession.

A confession about a map. A map of a city. A map both with and without a legend. It is a story about how historians work through their own memories, as well as through the archives, in order to understand the past. A story about a Black Sea town in the early 19th century.
