A number of artefacts from Northern China and Mongolia were recently acquired by the Metropolitan Museum of Art, a generous gift of Eugene V Thaw a long-time art dealer and collector. This book accompanies an exhibition held at the museum from 2002-2003 of these, and other artefacts, dating largely from the first millennium BC. Four short essays discuss the land and people, the types of artefacts within the collection and the legacy of the people of the Eurasian steppes. The main body of the book includes a catalogue of artefacts arranged by object type accompanied by colour photographs.
