The Imperiia Project: a spatial history of the Russian Empire


We passed this place before my morning coffee. It is, apparently, "a village where the so-called Byegunes or Stranniki, a sect of the Raskolniks, originated at the end of the 18th century."

I would have said I was diligent, but apparently there were gaps in my research. Maybe I will look up these Byegunes and Stranniki when I return to London.

Most likely I will forget.

And spend the rest of my life wallowing in ignorance.
