ArchaeologyFest Film Series: Best of 2007
Saturday, November 10, 2007 - 7:30pm
The infamous Genghis Khan was born some 850 years ago and came to rule the largest empire in the history of the world. In so doing, he changed the course of history as no one before or since. Let's find out how this world-changing figure emerged in this opulent film with a cast of hundreds of actors. Lavish scenes bring to life the lost world of history's most powerful and feared warlord.

How do we know what everyday life may have been like during the Middle Ages of Russia? Astounding discoveries of birchbark writings were made in 2003, letters which tell of life in the city of Novgorod, one of the few urban centers in the area to escape the Mongol invasions. The city's past is also explored through 10th and 12th century cathedrals and icons. This film's fictional re-enactments bring to light imagined scenes from Novgorod's
illustrious past.
