Klaipeda University has put up more volumes of Archaeologia Baltica in PDF format:
http://www.ku.lt/leidykla/Archaeologia_BALTICA.php

You can only download the entire volume, not individual articles. eLABA does have some individual articles from 2006 and 2007, though.

Incidentally, Lietuvos virtuali Biblioteka (The Virtual Library of Lithuania) lets you search freely available journals if you click on the "e-žurnalai" link at the top right-hand side.

Via [personal profile] florentinescot, via SCAToday, via the Joong Ang Ilbo:


The National Museum of Korea has an exhibition on called The Crossroads of Civilizations: Ancient Culture of Uzbekistan.
The thing that seems to be causing all the excitement is that there is a reproduction of (at least one of) the 7th c. murals from Afrasiab Palace, Samarkand, that has been interpreted as including two Korean ambassadors.

What caught my eye, was this from the Joong Ang Ilbo piece:
The actual nationality of the two men in the painting was long debated by specialists, with some saying that their clothing shows they are from the Silla (57 B.C.-935) or Balhae (698-926) eras. With the revelation of the jougwan, however, many have concluded that the men are from the Goguryeo era.

A bit of background -- this is the Three Kingdoms period, so your three choices in the seventh century are Goguryeo, Silla or Baekje. And it seems all three varieties of kingdom official wore jougwan (조우관), although the main debate seems to have been between Goguryeo and Baekje.* (Just to confuse, what came after Goguryeo was Balhae, where they continued wearing jougwan.)

The only argument I can find that firmly describes the ambassadors as Goguryeo comes from this article (will open a pop up window, and you need to go to page 97), which implies it isn't so much the jougwan that is the deciding factor, but the diplomatic clout of Goguryeo.

If you want to see a line drawing of the reconstruction, this article [PDF] on page 33 will help.

*For example, this article from the Journal of the Korean Society of Clothing Industry or here says Baekje officials wore jougwan.

And so I don't get confused, again, this is the Korean Society of Clothing Industry. This is the Korean Society for Clothing and Textiles. They have all of their English pages here, and you can access their Korean journals for free here.

I could sort these articles by topic, since there are a lot about place-names which could be useful for locatives.

I only went looking for this because the hardcopy journal is held at a Monash library, and because it seems I get *some* postgrad perks at the moment, I thought I should hunt it down. I didn't realise it was already online for free.

Google found a few articles on fabric weaves in folk costumes.

The list of books and citations Google has pulled up for Baltic archaeology is really interesting looking.
(Schwedische Kolonien in Lettland is here)

*slobbers all over the Libraries Australia Database*
"Die Kontakte zwischen Ostbaltikum und Skandinavien im frühen Mittelalter" is at Sydney university. I swear it wasn't there before!
"Gutar och vikingar" is at ANU in Canberra.
"Die Verbindungen zwischen Skandinavien und dem Ostbaltikum in der jüngeren Eisenzeit" doesn't seem to be in there though.
