A year ago, when we were all just starting our lives in Zoom, MsTeams and other wonderful virtual places, it seemed as if one of our biggest problems was organising practical tasks and projects. However, what we feared did not come true: on the contrary, it turned out that the virtual world is simply waiting to be conquered by philologists.
At the end of August, second – year students of the educational program “Philology” visited the next expedition. This time they were in the village of Bykovka in Vorotynsky district. This is the ancestral home of one of the wealthiest families of Imperial Russia.
