The need for fresh fishing and hunting grounds brought them north to the shores of the White Sea, where they little by little put down their roots. The remote location and harsh northern conditions forced these Pomors - as they became known - to be extremely self-reliant. Their homesteads consisted not only of sturdy log homes, but also saunas, storehouses (on piles for protection from animals), ice-block freezers, and special devices for dragging their wide heavy wooden boats – known as barkas – onto shore. Over time the Pomors developed their own unique architectural style.
