Detailed description

862 officially recognized as the year of education of the Russian state.

The formation of statehood in Russia - this is certainly the most controversial and little specific period in our history. Much of the reason for this scarcity of written records that have come down to modern times. Yes, and the information gleaned from ancient records are often too scarce and fragmentary, gives too wide a scope for making judgments modern historians.

The mere fact, inscribed in the annals of "Tale of Bygone Years", it remains undisputed that gives grounds for scientific conclusions. The stories related to the 9th century, mentions two dates. Year 859, when over the territories of Tschudi, words, and Krivichy dominated by Vikings, and 862, when they were driven out of the sea, and the people who inhabit Ilmensky Lakeland, became independent. He describes the story and mission of Prince Rurik, who began to rule in Novgorod, and the appearance of the names of the Russian land.

Later chroniclers often used these facts, adding certain details, new details. Already in the annals mentioned Gostomysl ages 15-16, an elder who is an ancestor of Rurik and the most important figure in the moment of his vocation.

However, state education is not an instantaneous process. The union of tribes and peoples under the Rurik power in Great Russia lasted for many years, and today is considered a dynasty Rurik first Russian tsars.
