Pogodin, M. P.

Pogodin was a member of that first generation of historians trying to decide what archeology meant to them and their discipline. He influenced the next, great generation of historians, including Solovev and Bestuzhev-Riumin. Very much a public intellectual, he published two journals, “The Moscow Herald” and “The Muscovite”; even Pushkin published in the former, but the latter was a Slavophile journal, a reflection of his politics.
