Historian, Prof. Lev Kozlov has worked for many years as a teacher at the BSU, Belarusian Pedagogical University named after M. Tank and the Belarusian State University of Culture and Arts. Since school years he has been fascinated with the legendary pioneers, who had created the first maps, and this interest predetermined his creative career. Now, historical geography and cartography of Belarus is among his scientific interests. He works on ancient maps, and colleagues call him “the Belarusian Mercator”. Lev Kozlov is sure that maps can tell even more than chronicles, historical documents or memoirs.

He is a member of the Belarusian Union of Entrepreneurs, the National Geographic Association (US), and the Global Trade Leaders’ Club. His publishing house "Arti-Fex" is a winner of the gold "Europe Award" (Paris, 2001).

The offered exhibition presents the main works of Lev Kozlov, including "Belarus on Seven Boundaries (the 11th – early 20th century)", a popular science album "Ancient Cartography of Belarus" in 3 editions, "Belarus in the Works of Polish Cartographers", "Polesye on Old Maps" and others. In addition, the "Great Historical Atlas of Belarus" in three volumes (co-author Lev Kozlov) is on display.

Visitors will be interested in such literary publications by Lev Kozlov, as a book of historical anecdotes "With the Permission of the King and the Grand Duke," a collection of jokes of all time "The Great Wit Museum", historical trilogy, "Radziwill the Orphan" (Vol. 1), and a collection of poems published under the pen name of Platt Gudovich.

The exposition also includes pictures and illustrative material. More than 50 documents are presented.
