Tartars

This is the name that Russians often give to the Mongol invaders, led by the descendants of Genghis Khan, who swept over the Russian state in the thirteenth century and held it under their oriental yoke for many generations. The story of this tragic conquest is told in 'The Tartar' chapter of RUSSKA.




 

 

 

Did You Know?
The first escalator England had ever seen was installed at Harrods in London on November 16th, 1898 to much fanfare, fascination and fear ! The moving staircase was such a strange and scary experience for people that Harrods began offering smelling salts and Cognac at the top in order to calm people after their terrifying ride.
