Боярин Василий Казимир и топонимика Северо-Запада Новгородской земли конца XVI века

С. 19-30.

Per Ambrosiani is a well known and prominent researcher of Novgorod place names. This article deals with the issue of place names as an important part of the cultural heritage of independent Novgorod in the 16th century. The unofficial place name ‘Kazimerov Kotel’, fixed in documents from the Russian–Swedish conversations in Tjavzino in November 1592–January 1593, is a trace of 15th-century Novgorod landownership. The preservation of this name in unofficial discourse is a remarkable testimony to the existence of a kind of ‘historical memory’ in the Novgorod lands 120 years after the loss of independence
