Chapter Summary

This chapter gives an overview of Chinese field research on the Nestorian remains in Inner Mongolia after the proclamation of the People's Republic of China (PRC) in 1949. It focuses primarily on the research conducted by Chinese archaeologists Gai Shanlin and, to a lesser extent, the research overseen by Wei Jian. The ancient city remains and cemetery at Chengbuzi were further researched and extensively excavated in 1995 by the Inner Mongolia Institute of Archaeology and Cultural Relics, the Wulanhua City Museum, and the Siziwang Banner Office for the Management of Cultural Relics. The final sections of the chapter introduce foreign field research from 1997 onwards, including the author's own research and fieldwork conducted in Inner Mongolia between 2001 and 2005.
