Produced in conjunction with the Russian Far East Institute of History, Archaeology and Ethnography and the Jilin Provincial Cultural Relics and Archaeological Research Institute, this is a well-illustrated survey of Nuzhen/Jurchen relics found at sites in Russia's far East. The Jurchen were the Jin dynasty rulers of northern China and the relics appear to date primarily from the 10th to 13th centuries AD with what appears to be some earlier material. The objects are mostly pottery and small bronzes, many of which show a 'steppe' influence. Two two-page prefaces in English, otherwise texts in Chinese and Russian.
