The Zooarchaeological Analysis of Pre-Zhou Animal Remains from the Zaoshugounao site and the Zaolinhetan site in Central Shaanxi, China
This is an abstract from the "New Thoughts on Current Research in East Asian Archaeology" session, at the 84th annual meeting of the Society for American Archaeology.
This research analyzed animal remains of the late Pre-Zhou culture from two sites of Zaoshugounao and Zaolinhetan in present-day central Shaanxi Province in China. The comparison of wild and domestic animal taxa, age profiles for main domestic animals, and sources and types of bone artifacts suggest distinct patterns of animal resource exploitation at the sites, showing different levels of complexity at Zaoshugounao and Zaolinhetan. This comparative zooarchaeological research provides new insights into the social and economic development in the historical ‘Bin’ area on the eve of the collapse of the Shang Dynasty.
