The Novgorod Occupation Archives

The Novgorod Occupation Archives, kept at the National Archives in Stockholm, are unique due to their age and size. They are war booty and date back to the years 1611-1617. Here the Muscovite state’s administrative routines from the 16th century are still being reflected. The Occupation Archives are considered the most complete older Russian state archives preserved to our day.
