The Meryas were a probably Finno-Ugric tribe which lived in the region of Moscow, Rostov, Kostroma, Jaroslavl and Vladimir. They may have been related to the Mari, or even more likely to the Mordvins and the Vepses between whom they lived. They were an old and important culture which is shown in the numerous archaeological finds in those areas.
