      The Interfax Agency cites deciphering of the text according to Sergei Troyanovsky, Head of the Archeological Research Organization and Support Centre: The birch manuscript is a letter from one of estates managers. He reports to his boyars (landlords) that he wants to catch the folks responsible for stealing hay from the hayfield and wonders what he is going to get in reward for this.
      This birchbark manuscript has become the 962nd of those discovered in the city of Veliki Novgorod.
