Description Lumír Jisl was a prominent Czechoslovak archaeologist whose field of research included both domestic research and excavations in Mongolia. In 1958 he led a very successful first Czechoslovak foreign archaeological expedition, which focused on the exploration of the monument to the Turk Prince Kültegin. In addition to archeology, L. Jisl was also interested in Buddhist art in China, Tibet and especially Mongolia. He drew his knowledge in this area from his stays in China and Mongolia (1957–1969), as well as from the study of museum collections in Prague (mainly Náprstek Museum), Central Europe (Budapest, Vienna) and Western Europe (Berlin, Leipzig, Rome, Stockholm, Hamburg, Bonn, Heidelberg). He published the results of in situ research and research on museological and private collections in monographs and magazines, both in Czech and in foreign languages. L. Jisl, one of the pioneers of Czechoslovak research in Mongolia and China, died prematurely on November 22, 1969 in Prague at the age of forty-eight. He was left with a rich, not yet completely processed scientific inheritance, which is carefully held by his two daughters.
