Summary

In May and June 2015, archaeologists from the Gansu Provincial Institute of Archaeology, Harvard University, Peking University, Yale University, and National Taiwan University, conducted archaeological and geophysical survey at two important sites in the Tao River drainage: Dayatou and Siwashan. Whereas Siwashan is the type site of the Siwa Culture, and has long been known as an important archaeological site, Dayatou has previously not undergone any published systematic research. Furthermore, previous work at Siwashan has not clarified the complicated distribution of material at the site. This recent research lays the foundation for additional focused work, and was also the last fieldwork conducted by Pochan Chen before his untimely death one month later.
