Chapter Summary

This appendix contains the infrared photographs or, when available, the ink drawings of the inscribed wooden tablets discussed. In addition to the illustrations, a transcription of the text recorded on the tablets as well as basic information on typology, size, and place of discovery is given. Formally, the inscribed wooden tablets of the ancient period can be divided into eighteen types, each identified by means of a three digit number. This classification was created by the Nara bunkazai kenkyūjo and is adhered to by the Mokkan Gakkai. The length, width, and thickness of each inscribed wooden tablet is given in millimetres. Figures in parentheses ( ) indicate incomplete specimens. Basic information on each inscribed wooden tablet can also be retrieved from the online mokkan-database.

Keywords: inscribed wooden tablets; Mokkan Gakkai; Nara bunkazai kenkyūjo
