唐代奚・契丹史研究と石刻史料 Some recently discovered stone engravings as historical sources for the study of the Xi and Qidan peoples in the Tang dynasty
This paper sets out current trends (and problems) in research on the history of theXi and Qidan peoples in the Tang dynasty. It also introduces epitaphs of these peoplesthat were discovered during the late-twentieth and early-twenty-first century in Chaoyang (Liaoning Province), Beijing, Xi'an, and Luoyang, while clarifying current scholarly issues and the direction of future research. These epitaphs provide new information on the "loose-rein prefectures" (jimizhou), territories indirectly administered by the central imperial authority, and the Fubing military system in the Tang dynasty.
