Life in a Siberian Town

Life in a Siberian Town

(p.70) Chapter Six Life in a Siberian Town

Janet M. Hartley

Yale University Press

This chapter discusses life in Siberian towns over the eighteenth and first three quarters of the nineteenth century. Towns played a crucial role in Siberia's development. The earliest fortified settlements performed essential military and administrative functions. In the course of the eighteenth and the first half of the nineteenth century, these towns also began to develop an economic and cultural life of their own. In such a vast and inhospitable territory, however, they remained tiny outposts of “Russianness”—in architecture, population, occupations, and cultural and educational institutions—in an otherwise very alien land.
