Kamalov A. Sino-Uighurica: Revisiting the Uighur runic inscriptions and the T’ang sources // Bolor-un Gerel. Crystal-splendour. Essays presented in honour of Professor Kara Gyorgy’s 70th birthday. Volume 1. Ed. by Birtlan Agnes and Rakos Attila. Eotvos Lorand University, Hungarian Academy of Sciences, Budapest, 2005. P. 385—391.


The author is delighted to dedicate this study to outstanding Hungarian Orientalist scholar George Kara who made a remarkable contribution, among others, to the Uighur studies.

Runic inscriptions of the Uighur Empire in Inner Asia (744–840 AD) still contain many interesting accounts, which had not been fully utilised yet. A comparative analysis of these accounts with the information of parallel Chinese historical sources of the T’ang period enables us to address some significant problems of the political history of the Uighurs. A small number of autochthonous sources on the Uighur Khaganate produced by the Uighurs themselves and scantiness of their data makes sometime contingent the very use of these accounts. That is why the discussion of some historical episodes given below contains more questions than their solution.
