web source for Russia and Ukraine
- A new page has appeared on the web for the study of Medieval and Early
Modern Russia and Ukraine. The author is Daniel C Waugh, a professor at
the University of Washington, Seattle.
From the author:
"This web page will provide links to resources for the teaching and
learning of the early history of the areas encompassed primarily by
today's Ukraine and the European parts of Russia and some adjoining regions
of Eastern Europe. The particular focus will be on the culture of the
Orthodox East Slavs; the period to be covered extends to approximately
1700. The emphasis is on material available in English; this is not
intended as a resource primarily for the support of serious academic research."
There are translations of Primary sources, art and culture sources and
other juicy tidbits. I'll add the link to the Russian Knowledge Page ASAP.
