It looks to me (after a bit of consultation with Wikipedia and Google maps, just because that's quick and easy for me) like the Kama River is entirely (but only just barely) in Europe - but the Khans make this more relevant to Asian archaeology.  Durn those ancient people for not paying attention to where modern geography puts boundaries Cheesy!

I've seen you classify links both by the location of the find, and by the location of the culture the find is related to - I don't think you really need to figure out a definite policy for this (or if you do, perhaps the key criterion would be "which thread will get lots of links this week, and which one will be sparse?"); I imagine most folks read all the threads.
