Life in a Siberian Village

Life in a Siberian Village

(p.55) Chapter Five Life in a Siberian Village

Janet M. Hartley

Yale University Press

This chapter discusses life in Siberian villages over the eighteenth and first three quarters of the nineteenth century. Siberia was different from European Russia. The environment, the climate, the natural resources, the terrain, the distances, and the difficulties of communication all affected the way peasants worked, dressed, and lived. The small number of serfs compared with state peasants, the presence of many Cossacks and military men, the indigenous peoples all had an impact on village life, on personal relationships, and on the way peasants governed themselves.

Keywords:   Siberia, Siberian history, villages, state peasants, serfs, Cossacks, military men, indigenous peoples
