This drawing was made 700 years ago by a 7-years-old boy named Onfim who lived in Novogrod.
He left his notes and homework exercises scratched in soft birch bark (beretsy)which was preserved in the clay soil of Novgorod. Onfim, who was six or seven at the time of his writings, wrote in Old Slavic; besides letters and syllables, he drew “battle scenes and drawings of himself and his teacher”
