If you didn't back up the repository, then the history is gone, so
you only have the revision that's currently checked out in your
working copy. You could import that into a new repository and start
over from there.

I believe Subversion (at least the current version, 1.3.2) will
ignore the .svn directories when importing, so you should just be
able to "svnadmin create" the repository, "svn import" your old
working copy into it, and "svn checkout" a new working copy from the
new repository and get back to work.
