1) and it is characterized by agricultural patterns inherent to the other zones, including poozer’e, interfluvial (similar to opol’e) and valley (similar to porech’e) agricultural landscapes. The change in the settlement pattern within this zone followed that of the western zone but with a time lag. Unfortunately, compared with the Novgorod area, fewer medieval historical documents (especially cadastres) describing the central zone remain today. Generally, the zone was characterized by larger agricultural plots 25 than in the west and their pattern changed several times as a result of non-strict natural limitations and high social pressures.
