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 Lev Kozlov is sure that maps can tell even more than chronicles, historical documents or memoirs.
