One of the two swords found during excavations of a tomb in Japan dating to the early sixth century has proven to be a one-of-a-kind discovery: the longest sword ever found in an ancient Japanese tomb. The second sword recovered from the underground tunnel tomb, known only as Burial Site 139, is also noteworthy in that it features a hilt rapped in ray skin, which makes it the oldest known East Asian item decorated in this manner. The tomb, located on Japan’s southernmost island of Kyushu in the Miyazaki Prefecture, was excavated from 2014 through 2015, according to an article appearing in the English-language version of Japan’s Asahi Shimbun newspaper. The two weapons were located alongside the skeletal remains found within the tomb, ind...

JERUSALEM (AP) In the innermost chamber of the site said to be the tomb of Jesus, a restoration team has peeled away a marble layer for the first time in centuries in an effort to reach what it believes is the original rock surface where Jesus' body was laid. Many historians have long believed that the original cave, identified a few centuries after Jesus' death as his tomb, was obliterated ages ago. But an archaeologist accompanying the restoration team said ground penetrating radar tests determined that cave walls are in fact standing - at a height of six feet and connected to bedrock - behind the marbled panels of the chamber at the center of Jerusalem's Church of the Holy Sepulchre. "What was found," said National Geographic archaeol...

It was with immense grief that I heard that my mentor and PhD advisor, Professor Edward Allworth, passed away last week in New York at the grand and befitting age of 95. As one of his last Master’s and then PhD students at Columbia University in the mid-1990s, I benefitted from six years of his tutorship, wisdom, compassion, intellectual rigor, high aspirations and expectations. He groomed us as cultural historians of a region – Central Asia – which he had discovered and loved since his own youth. Professor Allworth always defended cultural history during the Cold War when the tendency was to study strategy and weapons, as well as during the post-Soviet period, when the focus was on democracy building and economic transition models.
