Chance Finds As Sources Historical Research Of The Omsk Region Settlement


The paper is devoted to the study of material artefacts accidentally found in various areas of Omsk region for the purpose of argumentation or refutation of some pages of settlement of the territory of the region in the 18-19th centuries. The active settlement of the territory of the present Omsk region began at the beginning of the 18th century. Servicemen, Cossacks, immigrants, and exiles who came to a new place not only quickly adapted to the local climate, harsh Siberian conditions, but also introduced their knowledge, traditions, and experience to the life of a small local population. The paper presents some objects depicting the coat of arms of the Russian Empire confirming that despite the distance from the capital the uniforms and insignia of branch made by key producers were regularly delivered and actively used by the population. The military attributes of the 18-19th centuries found by the author and presented in the paper indicate the active presence of the representatives of military units here. The discovered remains of a dugout away from rural areas and villages indicate that despite the harsh living conditions, there were many people who could survive in a relative isolation and even absolutely alone. The authors tried to argue some facts of the history of invasion and development of the territory of Omsk region, as well as its settlements through specific artifacts. The presented sources not only replenish collections and museum exhibits, but also provoke interest in historical research and contribute to constructive controversy.
