:page_facing_up: MEETUP PLAN: As it will be 100 years since his birthday, we’ll take a train to Kovalyovo cemetery and visit Knorozov’s burial site to pay respects and lay flowers on his grave. After that we’ll take a train back to St.P. to return to @pathetiquejazz’s apartment, to watch a documentary about Knorozov and to sign postcards.

Please note that you may join at whichever stage you want. If you only want to sign postcards, or, for example, only want to visit the cemetery, that’s fine. Please notify me when you would like to join/leave.
The amount of guests I’m able to host equals to amount of seating places I have with access to the table to sign postcards at.

Yuri Valentinovich Knorozov (19 November 1922 – 31 March 1999) was a Russian linguist and ethnographer, who is renowned for the pivotal role his research played in the decipherment of the Maya script, the writing system used by the pre-Columbian Maya civilization of Mesoamerica.

The special issue stamp we will use for inspiration for our postcard:
