T. M. Dikova and N. N. Dikov collections, currently conserved in the North-Eastern
Interdisciplinary Research Institute(NEISRI),Far Eastern Branch,Russian Academy of Sciences,
are the largest collections of archaeological materials from the Kamchatka Peninsula. Although
ceramic specimens in these collections definitely play a significant role in our approach to study
the early history of the Kuril Ainu,only a small number of potsherd in them have been published
so far. In this study,we present a total picture of the pottery from Southern Kamchatka housed
in these collections and demonstrate that a hypothesis on temporal change in the distribution of
Naiji pottery can be supported.
