C) Staple Russian foods include wheat, barley, rye, beets, caviar (sturgeon eggs) and dairy (cattle are herded on the Russian steppes).

how do russians deal with the cold
How do Russians deal with the cold?

A Russian tradition is to go to the banya (Russian sauna). A beating with oak leaves improves your circulation. After sweating in the banya, you are supposed to take a plunge into an ice cold river or roll in the snow. *While Russians do drink a lot of vodka, alcohol LOWERS your body temperature.

ii early russian civilization
II Early Russian Civilization

A)During the time of the Roman Empire, Slavssettled by the Baltic and Black Seas.

B) By the 800s CE the Norsemen came as well.

The Norsemen were farmers and seafarers from Scandinavia (northern Europe). The Vikings were Norsemen who went on raids.

SLAVIC WARRIOR

Slavic people share a common culture. Descendents of the Slavs live in many eastern European countries such as Croatia and Serbia. As many were forced into slavery in the Middle Ages, the Slavs are the origin for the word “slave”.

iv russia under the mongols
IV Russia Under the Mongols

A) Batu, the grandson of Genghis Khan, led the Mongol army from Asia into Russia. The Mongols controlled Russia from 1240-1400s.

B) Though Russian princes in Moscow became wealthy by working with the Mongols, Russian infrastructure (roads, buildings, etc) had been destroyed, leaving Russia cut off from Western Europe for centuries!

The Mongols were a fierce nomadic tribe from north of China. Under Genghis Khan, they created one of the largest empires in history.
