24-year-old man spends half a year alone in the Middle Ages

A historical reenactment group is attempting to recreate medieval daily life outside Moscow. The idea is to see if a modern person can survive in a 9th-century environment, with no access to electricity or other modern amenities.

The recreated medieval dwelling is situated just 28 miles from Moscow, near the noisy Yaroslavsky Highway. 24-year-old reenactor is going to stop using all modern technology and spend eight months as if he were living in the Middle Ages, without electricity or modern clothing. The experiment should last until March 22 - the start of the new year according to the Slavic calendar.
