Novgorod Karamzin’s chronicle
(1204 – 1278)

Nicholas Zharkikh

Shortened text of the section. Full text in ukrainian version.

The Novgorod Karamzin’s chronicle (NKL) came down to us in a single copy of the late 15th – early 16th centuries [PSRL, 2002, vol. 42]. It consists of two series of extracts, which should probably be considered preparatory materials for the next chronicle work. According to A. Bobrov’s reasoning, the first series of extracts dated to 1411 (NKL1) is primary in relation to S1LSI, while the second series (NKL2) is secondary in relation to S1LSI [Bobrov A. G. . – Spb.: D. Bulanin, 2001]. We are interested in NKL1 itself.
