  1. I have a dilemma. I have a piece of “something” that I obviously have no idea what it is. I was told many years ago it was a “pi ring” and went on a rope tie of a chinese robe. May I email you a picture in hopes that you are able to identify what this item is?
    Thank you for your time and consideration.
    Kindest Regards,
    Janice Moree

  2. Dear Dr. Todd,

    This semester I taught a new course called “Archaeology of East Asia.” Your wonderful photo collections have been an immense help with providing images of artifacts for my lectures. Since I have never been to Korea, your photos from the National Museum in Seoul were especially helpful. I’m very grateful to you for the time you have spent in taking the photos and making them available to everyone. They are an outstanding resource to anyone who teaches Asian history and culture. Through a listserv that I own, I have also alerted other scholars of pre-modern Chinese history to your valuable photo collections. Thanks again for your hard work and willingness to share.

    • Thanks for your comments. Please feel free to share these photos with anyone. I just added the Tokyo National Museum which has an impressive gallery on Japanese Archaeology. I am also working on creating a wiki-type database which would link eventually to all sorts of historical photos. Since I do all this in my alleged spare time, this project will probably have to wait until summer.
