Background
V. Ia. Tolmachev was born in Shadrinskii uezd, Permskaia guberniia, on 21 November 1876 (O.S.). Upon graduation from the Ekaterinburg gimnaziia, he entered St. Petersburg University, where he studied in the physics and mathematics department, and simultaneously audited courses at the Academy of Arts. But his primary interest was archeology, and in 1900 he transferred to the Archeological Institute. Every summer was spent on expedition, and upon graduation from the Institute he went to work digging up artifacts in the Ural-Volga region. Many of the results of his scientific work appeared in Drevnosti Urala, which commenced publication in 1913.
