Sidan 8 - Kansu, ie the extreme northwest of China, passes south of the westernmost extension of the Great Wall but north of the Nanshan range, westward across Sinkiang (Chinese Turkestan), skirting the Tarim Desert either north or south to reach Kashgar (Issedon Scythica), the gate of the Pamirs. Kashgar is some 1,500 miles from Lanchow, and Turfan, the region of Stein's great discoveries, lies roughly halfway between the two cities. The middle section crosses the Pamirs to reach Merv (Antiochia Margiana)...

Sidan 3 - Glass objects are generally made entirely of glass, whilst glazed objects consist of one or more layers of glaze applied to a core or base of other material. Glass is made by heating the ingredients in a crucible until they fuse into a liquid, which is either poured into a mould, pulled out as threads when in a plastic condition, or allowed to cool and then broken from the pot. Faience, on the other hand, is moulded to shape as a powder, lightly held together with some liquid such as milk of lime,...
Sidan 49 - East by a hand to hand trade across the steppe, probably in part along the future trade route. Early in our era, glass vessels of western make were reaching the Far East, but centuries before this — c. 300 BC or earlier — two entirely differently ornamented types of western beads were reaching China in sufficient numbers to be admired and to be copied on a considerable scale, though such copying was not servile and the foreign elements might be considerably modified. Both types of bead were common...
Sidan 58 - Arab» glass alluded to on p. 13 the glass objects include 200 glass tips (blue, brown, yellow, and green) for the rods (jiku) on which are rolled sutra scripts, and about 62,500 glass beads, while many glass beads of different colours help to compose the headdresses worn by the Emperor Shomu and his consort. There are also pieces of bead work and lumps of unworked glass. We can hardly suppose that such numerous objects are of western origin. Our own specimens include...

Sidan 3 - ... beginning of our paper to indicate what is meant by »glass», and to point out the differences between glass, glaze, and faience. Glass, glaze, and faience are all made of similar materials ; their chief constituent is silica and they all contain lime. Glass and glaze always contain soda or other alkali, whilst small quantities of soda are usually present in faience. In ordinary modern European glass, 6% to 10 % of lime, 15 % to 20 % of soda, and the balance silica, is a common formula. In faience,...
Sidan 35 - ... analysis, though since it exists it seems advisable to record it ; the interest of our observation is that among many hundred beads buried with their women by those keen collectors the Vikings, there were no examples of a type of bead traded over much of Europe and Asia in the centuries immediately preceding and following the beginning of our era. The export of this bead from the Mediterranean area, and presumably its manufacture there, must then have ceased by Viking or pre-Viking times. BLUE...
Sidan 50 - Laufcr had already shown that the Chinese dove-chariot was of European origin,88) without, however, reference to the socketed celt. It is admitted that in the early part of the Han dynasty swords and halberds were of bronze; later, about the beginning of our era, the Chinese were fighting with long iron swords, while among Chinese scholars there is the general belief that iron was known and used in agriculture as early as the fourth or fifth century BC The time-lag ceases to be astonishing when the...
