This post for Wednesday walk challenge. Walk through a small open-air museum. Samara region, outskirts of the village of Krasny Yar. The museum is unofficial, everything built on the site is the result of the work of a local farmer and his assistant. As they say, in the 90s the farmer began to get involved in the history of his native village. Study old maps and documents. In addition, the remains of the ancient defensive moat of the Novo-Zakamskaya defensive line pass not far from its site. In the distant 1700s, this moat protected from nomads from Asia. Today, little is left of it, just a ditch overgrown with grass. In general, several buildings were built on the site - a residential hut (in the title photo), and a palisade with defensive towers. There is also a mill, but last year two blades were torn off by a strong wind ... Recently, the place has become popular - a large number of people come from the city, whole excursions. Many travel with children. By the way, admission to the museum is free. But everyone can donate any amount for development - there is a special box at the entrance :)
5 All wooden idols are handmade.
9 Real millstones. Formerly used at a local mill
14 Something like a wagon, but instead of wheels - millstones :)
23 And this is a sacrificial stone. But it doesn’t contain the blood of those sacrificed to pagan gods - it’s ordinary water, just a recess on the stone is painted with a dye :))
