Description

BOOK DESCRIPTION
The archaeology of the Russian Far East is rich in new and sometimes surprising discoveries. Very early pottery dates, in several locations, are perhaps the most important and interesting of these finds. Connections with other parts of the Far East are also established in these new studies. The chapters that follow in this regional synthesis elaborate these themes. Arranged in chronological order and by region, each is written by a specialist who has participated in some or all of the archaeological expeditions reported here. The chapters are replete with archaeological details, allowing the reader to judge the interpretations independently. Illustrations and maps add to the information provided. They show not just the unanticipated richness of the archaeology of the Russian Far East but, more important, the contributions these sites can make to the archaeology of the region and of the world.
