Advances in Archaeology of Prehistoric and Early China

Part of: Society for American Archaeology 82nd Annual Meeting, Vancouver, BC (2017)

The last decade academic has witnessed a dramatic progress in development of research on archaeological sciences in China. Recent achievement in this area has resulted in some interpretations on new materials of prehistoric and early historic China which would be interested to international communities. Papers in this symposium will present on-going projects that address new methods, results and perspectives. Papers have striven to integrate analyses into broader interpretations of meaning of the origin and evolution of human and technology, transition of culture, origins of agriculture, rise of early state, and paleo-environmental reconstruction and the forth from approaches of archaeological sciences (eg. archaeobotany, zooarchaeology, stable isotope analysis, use-wear and residue analysis, material analysis), ethnoarchaeology and anthropology.
