Publisher's description: The treasures discovered from the prime of dynastic Kiev -- namely the nearly 70 medieval hoards of gold and silver jewelry of the ruling powers, nobility, and the Christian Church -- are documented in this beautiful book. The splendor of a once powerful cultural and political center of Eastern Europe is evidenced by these pieces that are unique to Kiev. Their artistic workmanship and magnificence of style enriches the understanding of Kievan art and allows it to stand on its own as separate from Byzantine art history. Featuring objects that have never been published outside the former Soviet Union, this survey provides a complete picture of the three largest medieval hoards unearthed in the now-Ukrainian city -- in 1906, 1842, and 1824 -- while tracing the history and whereabouts of other lost treasures and providing invaluable insight into the rich heritage of Kievan Rus'.
