There are no records
of who built the serpents wall and when, we
only know they were built in ancient times to protect my hometown from
nomads tribes and some other wild folks.
May be those arrow-heads remember Mongols. In 13
century, the Baty-Khan, the grandson of Genghis Khan brought his army
to the walls and tryed to talk people of my town to surrender.
The Baty-Khan was captivated with the beauty of a churches and didn't want to ruin it.
As Kievers refused to surrender Mongols sieged town.
Siege lasted for a weeks and as nearly all male
population died in defending town, some traitors opened gates and
thousands of Mongols broke in.
Killing people and burning
houses they surrender last defenders at this church and many climbed on
the roof. Finally church fallen, burrying everyone and it was the end
of epoch of freedom and prosperity called Kievan Rus and beginning of
the Tatar yoke.
Sometimes I think, it was good for those people to die and
not to see all rape and slavery which lasted for more then hundred
Before Mongols came the people in my town had blue eyes and
blond hair, now we mostly have dark haired people with hazel eyes and I
am one of them and I don't mind being a brunette.
