Summary/Abstract: The article’s aim is to reveal the artifacts of the Mongolian time. Therefore, the author analyzes the materials of Primorye’s eight medieval monuments, which make it possible to distinguish artifacts marking the Mongolian time in the Jurchen complexes: 1) ceramic products with green glazing; 2) vessels with brown painting on a white background (a Tzu-chou style); 3) blue vases with floral ornaments; 4) vessels with cobalt underglaze painting; 5) land dwellings with a stone rectangular foundation, frame wooden walls on both sides clayed, with a southern entrance; 6) glassware (rings of white and black glass, raw materials in the form of plates, straps on the belt, earrings in the form of a question mark, etc. with a chemical composition (Na-K-Ca-Mg-Si), analogous of Karakorum one, 7) arrowheads; 8) cast-iron pommel maces; 9) like a mushroom form of shaped buttons. The emergence of Mongolian artifacts in Primorye on the monuments of the Jin Empire (1115—1234) and the Eastern Xia (1215—1234) has fundamentally changed the historical picture of the region. The question arises whether the Mongols destroyed the Eastern Xia state or whether the state continued to function after the defeat of the Jurchen Jin Empire.
