Caption: Fish smoking in Kamchatka, 18th century artwork. Women are cleaning and preparing the fish (lower right), while the men are tending to the fire and hanging the fish fillets on a rack where the wood smoke will flavour and preserve the meat. Kamchatka is a remote peninsula in the Russian Far East, first visited by Russian explorers in the 17th century and inhabited by a variety of indigenous peoples. This engraving is from a 1771 volume of Allgemeine Historie der Reisen zu Wasser und Lande (General history of travel by sea and land), a travelogue edited by the German scholar Johann Joachim Schwabe (1714-1784).
