Potteries Connecting the World

From the archaeological ruins of Al Fustat, once a central area of politics and culture located in the Southern suburbs of Cairo, many artefacts such as potteries from as far as China have been found. These potteries were traded through a sea route known as the Porcelain Road, starting from Southern China via the Eastern and Southern China Seas and the Indian Ocean to the Arabian Peninsula.

This exhibition displays artefacts from the Al Fustat ruins as well as all kinds of ceramics from Western Asia, Southeast Asia, and East Asia of the collection at Aizu Museum to demonstrate how the world was connected through trade of pottery.
