Legends of ancient times bring us that long ago lived in the Ural mountains mysterious people — Chud, or as it is called, Divya people. For years, they lived happily and peacefully. And lived so until they were on the Ural land to build factories and mills. This situation forced divih people go underground for a long time.
Now for many of us Divya people — only the characters of children's fairy tales. But is it really? Onuchko known ethnographer in the early twentieth century, wrote that these subterranean inhabitants as real as you and me: "In the Middle Ages and later to Chud treated not only as to the actually existing people, but wanted to be friends with them. After Chud best understand the soul of the metal, the nature of the stone, and more. Culture they have the greatest, and the light from them in the mountains better than the sun. Divya people of small stature, very beautiful and pleasant voice. They say that Divya people built entire underground city, which is still home to their representatives. Moreover, they possessed supernatural powers and secret knowledge. From the outside world Divya people communicated through multiple cave passages. "
Historical sources indicate that in spite of this situation, contacts with envoys Tschudi settlers still occur. Most of these were quite unusual contacts through dreams. This is how one of them: "Once Tatishchev, founder of Yekaterinburg, had a strange dream. Appeared to him in a dream woman of unusual appearance and marvelous beauty. Was dressed in animal skins, on the chest of her glittering gold jewelry. And she said to him: "You are ordered to dig mounds in his new city. Do not touch them, there are my brave warriors. There will be no rest for you is not in this world, if they disturb dust or take expensive armor. I Chudskaya Princess Anne, I swear that broke and the city, and all that you build, if you touch the graves … ". And Tatishchev heed the ban, and ordered not to touch these graves. "
About the people mentioned and the famous Russian scientist and traveler, artist and writer Nicholas Roerich in his book, "The Heart of Asia." Allegedly, when their lands began to grow white birch, which means coming soon people will set their own rules here, Chud left the ground, and covered with stones for an underground entrance. Chud but left not just the ground, and one they know the country. Nicholas Roerich stated: "When you come back a happy time and people come from Belovodye and give the people of great science, then Chud back with all mined treasures."
This was echoed by the ancient Greek legend about the Hyperboreans who lived beyond the Riphean (Ural) mountains. Hyperboreans lived a happy life: they knew no war, no disease, and death were thinking only satiated with life. The ancient Greek writer Lucian mentions a meeting with one of the Hyperboreans, "I did not believe them until I saw a flying alien, barbarian. In my eyes the day people hovering in the air, walked on the water and took a slow walk through the fire. "
New immigrants coming to the bare uninhabited places, usually there is a lack of living space oriented. In the Urals, was nothing like this. Story conveys to us that the mineral deposits in the area which were built Ural plants, followed by the city and were marked Peipsi labels. All this suggests a certain cultural mission Tschudi in the Urals. That Peipsi mounds were built of Yekaterinburg, Chelyabinsk, and next to the largest mound stands the city of Kurgan.
Medieval German scientist Georg Agricola, the first to release a book on mining, often mentioned Dwarfs, "They usually come in two forms: some are small, but strong, like the Pygmies, while others have a view of decrepit, gnarled old men, and all live in the mountains."
With regard to the Ural mountains, in their interiors contain the entire periodic table, not to mention the multitude of minerals. All this wealth of the Urals were up to that time until this "wild edge" to start seeing the factory owners and industrialists. They were surprised to find these, at first sight, pristine mountains and ready-made mines and metallurgical tracks! Academician Ivan Lepekhin in 1768, wrote about it: "… lived here Chud yellow-eyed just very good ore pulling away, climbing under the ground like moles …". However, being here is not only the ancient mines and ancient bronze ware of great beauty. But in the biggest impasse scientists put a plaque depicting dwarfs, riding on a dragon.
Among the Ural Tschudi was spread the idea of a mythical beast with the head of the armed horn and elongated torso with shields along the back. A few decades later in the Kama area were found the remains of such a beast, like two peas similar to those shown in the bronze badge!
