In archaeological assemblages at Russian towns, one finds single leather objects, the material of which is visually distinguishable from the bulk of artefacts. “Foreign-cultural” objects may be divided into the following groups: 1) those the making of which was primarily defined by individual physical traits of the consumer (footwear); 2) articles which could be used by any individual (sheathes of knives, daggers and swords, purses, bags); 3) objects which originally were intended as trading goods (leather). Today, we are able to recognize three groups of “foreign” artefacts: western and eastern leather objects in Russian towns and Russian articles abroad.
