Description

Most researchers now agree that fur money was in circulation in 11th-13th century Rus’. This form of commodity money was in use only in the cultural and political borders of Early Rus’ and did not spread beyond its borders. The paper examines the known written accounts handed down by travellers to Rus’ in the Middle Ages and second-hand eyewitness reports about its customs, and discusses the financial side of the fur money circulation. A few attributed finds of fur money seals are presented.
