The «Seven in the Past» is a sequel of the historical experiment «Alone in the Past». This time, seven people, men and women, are going to live for nine months from December to September on a early medieval farm with a huge cottage in the center. Without electricity, modern facilities and communications. The participants are allowed to use only authentic medieval clothing, tools, equipment and food.

Some facts about the Project
The preparatory stage — from December, 2015 to July, 2017. Historical experiment is going to take place at a new site with meadows, hills, river and forest, away from highways and noisy neighbors. You can monitor the project and learn about the life in Medieval Russia from sapog.ratobor.com.
The participants have a task: not just to survive, but to establish a joint mode of life and to ensure supply of food to the end of the project, the date of which falls on the Harvest feast. If they want to finish the project as a thriving community, they should be engaged in agriculture and crafts.

Cattle and animals
In the spring-2016 we’ll acquire several species of cattle and animals, which are very similar to the medieval ones. Only the best and the most adequate animals will be chosen for the active phase of the experiment.
