Kjerring√ły trading post

Kjerringøy trading post is an open-air museum at Kjerringøy in Nordland, Norway. It is operated as part of the Nordland Museum of cultural history. Kjerringøy trading post was established in the late 1700s, it traded over a large area, was licensed to provide accommodation for travelers. Through the buying and selling of fish and fish products is became an affluent trading post; the Kjerringøy merchants bought fish in Lofoten and elsewhere in Nordland, dried or salted the fish and sold it in Bergen and other places. The ships used to transport the goods where single masted open cargo sailing ships, such as the Anna Karoline; the ships returned with foodstuffs, fishing gear and other equipment, which they sold in their local store, or in the Lofoten islands. The business remained quite modest until about 1820; the herring fishery experienced a peak from about 1860. The merchant post's business was at the height of its prosperity around 1875, after which it declined; the merchant at the time invested in mining and other modern enterprises with little success.

The first merchant of note on Kjerringøy was Christian Lorentzen Sverdrup who owned the business from 1803 until his death in 1829. He had earlier traded at Hundholmen in Bodø, it was under his ownership. Sverdrup's daughter, Anna Elisabeth, married Jens Nicolai Ellingssen, he invested in the fish trade with great success. Ellingsen died in 1849, his widow continued the business with increasing help from Erasmus Zahl. They got married in 1859 and Zahl's rise coincided with Kjerringøy's heyday. Zahl amassed exceptional riches and stamped his mark on the business life of Nordland for several decades. Anna Elisabeth died in 1879, Zahl in 1900; when he died, the Kjerringøy business and its earning power had been declining for a couple of decades, as was true for most of the other northern Norwegian merchant posts. Local merchant and politician Gerhard Kristiansen took over the business and ran it from 1900 until his death in 1937. During his time, it became a purely local; the commercial operation of Kjerringøy trading post was discontinued at the end of the 1950s and the premises were bought by Nordland Museum in 1959.

There had been little or no activity there for many years and the buildings had become dilapidated. Most of the buildings at the museum now have been restored. Today the museum comprises 15 functions as an open-air museum.

Mikhail Pogodin

Mikhail Petrovich Pogodin was a Russian historian and journalist who, jointly with Nikolay Ustryalov, dominated the national historiography between the death of Nikolay Karamzin in 1826 and the rise of Sergey Solovyov in the 1850s. He is best remembered as a staunch proponent of the Normanist theory of Russian statehood. Pogodin's father was a serf housekeeper of Count Stroganov, the latter ensured Mikhail's education in the Moscow University; as the story goes, Pogodin the student lived from hand to mouth, because he spent his whole stipend on purchasing new volumes of Nikolay Karamzin's history of Russia. Pogodin's early publications were panned by Mikhail Kachenovsky, a Greek who held the university chair in Russian history. Misinterpreting Schlozer's novel teachings, Kachenovsky declared that "ancient Russians lived like mice or birds, they had neither money nor books" and that Primary Chronicle was a crude falsification from the era of Mongol ascendency, his teachings became exceedingly popular, spawning the so-called sceptical school of imperial historiography.

In 1823, Pogodin completed his dissertation in which he debunked Kachenovsky's idea of Khazar origin of Rurikid princes. He further stirred up the controversy by proclaiming that serious scholars should not only trust but worship Nestor; the dispute ended with Kachenovsky's chair being devolved on Pogodin. In the 1830s and 1840s he augmented his reputation by publishing many volumes of obscure historical documents and the last part of Mikhail Shcherbatov's history of Russia. Towards the end of the 1830s, Pogodin turned his attention to journalism, where his career was a slow burner. Between 1827 and 1830 he edited The Herald of Moscow with Alexander Pushkin as one of the regular contributors. Upon first meeting the great poet in 1826, Pogodin famously remarked in his diary that "his mug doesn't look promising". However, this remark is taken out of context as Pogodin wrote glowing reviews of Pushkin's work as early as 1820. In the wake of the Polish Uprising it feel to Nicholas I's minister of education, Count Uvarov of finding aways to unite the various branches of the "true Russians".

Uvarov began looking for an author who could provide historical justification for the annexation and integration of the new western provinces into the empire. Uvarov's first choice was Pogodin, approached in November 1834 and submitted his work in 1935, however his work did not satisfy the minister's demands nor the tsars' as his book presented the history of northeastern Rus as too distinct and separate from the history of Southern Rus undermining the projects main goal. In the report of the investigations into the actives of the Brotherhood of Saints Cyril and Methodius, professors Mikhail Pogodin and Stepan Shevyrev were named as key figures in the Slavophile movement. However, though a key figure in the emerging pan-Slavic movement by stressing the unique and self awareness of the Russian nation, Pogodin sent an example to non-Russian Slavs who wished to celebrate their distinctness and their rights to autonomy and independence. From its beginning, Ukraine took a special place in the Slavophile movement.

Pogodin and Shevyrev both showed a great interest in the culture and history of Ukraine in particular. Mikhail Podogin, saw cultural differences between Russians and Ukrainians that went beyond language and history, he wrote in 1945, "The Great Russians live side by side with the Little Russians, profess one faith, have shared one fate and for, for many years one history. But how many differences there are between the Great Russians and the Little Russians". In the 1840s, Pogodin suggested that there had been linguistic differences among the population as early as Kyivan times, that they coincide with 19th century's distinctions between Great Russians and Little Russians. Thus, while the population of Kyiv and Halych spoke Little Russian, that of Moscow and Vladimir spoke Great Russian. What more, he considered the Princes of Kyiv, including such a major figure in the development of the Grand Duchy of Muscovy, Andrei Bogoliubsky, to have been Little Russians. According to Pogodin it was only Bogoliubsky's descendants he argued that had "gone native" in the north-eastern lands and became Great Russians.

According to historian Serhii Plokhy "Pogodin's account of Kyivan Rus history deprived the early Great Russian narrative of its most prized element-the Kyivan period". Pogodin drastically changed his analysis of Kievan Rus and of Russian nationalism after the arrest of his pro-Ukrainian associate Mykola Kostomarov and the remaining members of the Brotherhood of Saints Cyril and Methodius. In his 1851 letter to Sreznevsky, Pogodin asserted that in reading the early Kyivan Chronicles, he detected no trace of the Little Russian language but rather of the Great Russian language, consciously or unconsciously aware of the fact that the chronicles had not been written in Old East Slavic but Church Slavonic. In 1841 Pogodin joined his old friend Stepan Shevyrev in editing Moskvityanin, a periodical which came to voice Slavophile opinions. In the course of the following fifteen years of editing and Shevyrev slid towards the most reactionary form of Slavophilism, their journal became embroiled in a controversy with the Westernizers, led by Alexander Herzen, who deplored Pogodin's "rugged, unbroomed style, his rough manner of jotting down cropped notes and unchewed thoughts".

Pogodin's main focus during the last segment of his scholarly career was on fending off Kostomarov's attacks against the Normanist theory. By that period, he championed the pan-Slavic idea of uniting Western Slavs under the aegis of the tsars and visited Pra
