  • Kua‘āina Kahiko: Life and Land in Ancient Kahikinui, Maui by
           Patrick Vinton Kirch
    • Abstract: <p>By Michael Dega</p> This captivating volume builds upon more than 17 years of archaeological, ethnographic, geographic, and demographic research by the “Dean of Hawaiian Archaeology,” Dr. Patrick Kirch, along the dry, windswept leeward coast of Kahikinui, Maui, Hawai‘i. Kirch combines autobiographic accounts of his many years in Kahikinui with serious archaeological research in a way that is extremely accessible to a wide range of audiences. Kirch’s special relationship with the kama‘āina, or residents of the land, as well as his anecdotal prose, should make his book appeal to a general readership while still being instructive to specialists in Hawaiian archaeology, history, and the natural sciences. Kirch herein lifts a ... <a href="https://muse.jhu.edu/journals/asian_perspectives/v053/53.2.dega.html">Read More</a>

  • A History of Myanmar since Ancient Times by Michael Aung-Thwin, Maitrii
           Aung-Thwin
    • Abstract: <p>By John N. Miksic</p> This book was written just as Myanmar began to come out of the shell in which it had reposed for 50 years. During that period, historians and archaeologists had little contact with foreign scholarship. Some foreign archaeologists maintained contact with their counterparts, but they ran the risk of being condemned for appearing to support the military regime. There was a brief thaw in the late 1990s and early 2000s, when the Myanmar Historical Commission sponsored a number of international conferences. During that time, a number of scholars including such major prehistorians as Ian Glover and Charles Higham (and others including the author of this review) were invited to the site of Nyaung-gan in central Myanmar to ... <a href="https://muse.jhu.edu/journals/asian_perspectives/v053/53.2.miksic.html">Read More</a>

  • Securing the Harmony between the High and the Low: Power Animals and
           Symbols of Political Authority in Ancient Chinese Jades and Bronzes
    • Abstract: <p>By Rui Oliveira Lopes</p> One of the issues that has given rise to lengthy discussions among art historians is that of the iconographic significance of Chinese Neolithic jade objects and the symbolic value the decorations on bronze vessels might have had during the Shang (c. 1600–1045 b.c.) and Zhou (1045–256 b.c.) dynasties. Some historians propose that the representations of real and imaginary animals that often decorated bronze vessels bore no specific meaning. The basis of their argument is that there is no reference to them among the oracle bones of the Shang dynasty or any other contemporaneous written source.1 They therefore suggest that these were simply decorative elements that had undergone a renovation of style in line with an ... <a href="https://muse.jhu.edu/journals/asian_perspectives/v053/53.2.lopes.html">Read More</a>

  • Archaeological History of a Fijian Island: Moturiki, Lomaiviti Group
    • Abstract: <p>By María Cruz Berrocal, Antonio Uriarte González, Sidsel Millerstrom, Susana Consuegra Rodríguez</p> In 2007, we started a project to record rock art in Fiji (Cruz Berrocal and Millerstrom 2013; Millerstrom and Cruz Berrocal 2009, 2010), focusing in 2008 on a site called Vatu Vola that had been discovered in 2006 in the Naisogorourou area on Moturiki (pers. comm. Jone Balenaivalu, 13 September 2007). We designed our fieldwork there as a selective survey to understand the mechanisms of landscape construction associated with the making of rock art on small islands. The survey and further archaeological explorations of Moturiki rendered significant data and raised research questions presented in this article (Cruz Berrocal and Millerstrom 2013). Moturiki is one of the islands in the Lomaiviti group in ... <a href="https://muse.jhu.edu/journals/asian_perspectives/v053/53.2.berrocal.html">Read More</a>

  • The Vanuatu “Butterfly Sail”: A Polynesian Oceanic Spritsail
           in Melanesia
    • Abstract: <p>By Anne Di Piazza</p> Before the time when the labour trade made the natives afraid to move about, and “recruiting” meant destruction of canoes for the capture of their crews, red “butterfly” sails were the common and pleasing ornament of an island scene in the New Hebrides and Banks groups. In the first volume of Pirogues Océaniennes, Father Neyret, a Marist missionary assigned to Fiji, the Solomon Islands, and New Caledonia, wrote: The most beautiful examples of naval construction are the canoes of Malakula and its neighboring islets: the most typical model is the magnificent high seas outrigger canoe . . . , a model that must figure among the most original and interesting of those of Melanesia, and which gives us a ... <a href="https://muse.jhu.edu/journals/asian_perspectives/v053/53.2.di-piazza.html">Read More</a>

  • Ceramic Firing Structures in Prehistoric and Ancient Societies of the
           Russian Far East
    • Abstract: <p>By Irina S. Zhushchikhovskaya, Yury G. Nikitin</p> Technological history is an important part of past culture-historical patterns in any region of the world. The archaeological record allows researchers to obtain fragmented information about some old technologies, including the knowledge and skills possessed by ancient people in thermal processing of such raw materials as metallic ores and clays (Wertime and Wertime 1982). In particular, investigations of early pottery making and the craft of roof tile production focus significant attention on indicators of firing technology. Pottery firing technologies have a long and prominent history in East Asia. The archaeological and historical records of China indicate dramatic technological developments, from ... <a href="https://muse.jhu.edu/journals/asian_perspectives/v053/53.2.zhushchikhovskaya.html">Read More</a>

  • Editors’ Note
    • Abstract: I would like to formally announce that Dr. Mike Carson has joined me as a new co-editor for Asian Perspectives. Mike, who is an archaeologist with the Micronesian Area Research Center (MARC), University of Guam, brings his expertise in Pacific Island archaeology to Asian Perspectives. He will be working with authors who submit manuscripts on Pacific region topics, including initial inquiries about these submissions and guiding the authors through the peer review process, and he will be handling all book reviews. In recent years, we have had a number of special issues devoted to particular methodological topics, innovative theoretical approaches, and syntheses of current research in particular regions of ... <a href="https://muse.jhu.edu/journals/asian_perspectives/v053/53.1.editor.html">Read More</a>

  • Mapping Local Perspectives in the Historical Archaeology of Vanuatu
           Mission Landscapes
    • Abstract: <p>By James L. Flexner</p> Much of the work of contemporary landscape archaeology could be said to fit broadly into the framework of constructing narratives about past places. The concept “place” has been important for understanding culture, notably in humanistic geography, from which the theoretical literature on place is largely derived (Buttimer and Seamon 1980; Cresswell 2004; Pred 1984, 1990; Seddon 1997; Tuan 1978). Work on this topic in anthropology and archaeology has also grown over the last two decades (Basso 1996; Bender 1993; Bender et al. 1997; Bowser 2004; Ingold 1993, 2000; Pauls 2006; Rodman 1992; Wheatley 2004). Theorists often contrast space, defined as an abstract, measured way of dividing up the world, with place, which ... <a href="https://muse.jhu.edu/journals/asian_perspectives/v053/53.1.flexner.html">Read More</a>

  • Tracing Post-Dvaravati Culture from Space: Applying Remote Sensing
           Technique in West-Central Thailand
    • Abstract: <p>By Podjanok Kanjanajuntorn, Supamas Duangsakun, Budsaba Uamkasem, Ramphing Simking</p> The application of spatial technology to archaeological research in Southeast Asia is increasing (CRMA 2012; Mackay and Sullivan 2008; Pryce and Albrams 2010). Countries such as Thailand have made this sophisticated technology available for research in the social sciences and humanities. Archaeology is one of the disciplines that benefits. Remote sensing technology can yield detailed information on the history of the landscape that often leads to an understanding of human activities. Satellite images and aerial photographs can reveal previously hidden archaeological features and help identify archaeological sites, specifically ancient features such as earthworks and ditches. Such imagery provides visual ... <a href="https://muse.jhu.edu/journals/asian_perspectives/v053/53.1.kanjanajuntorn.html">Read More</a>

  • Finding the “Early Medieval” in South Asian Archaeology
    • Abstract: <p>By Jason D. Hawkes</p> The “early” or “premedieval” period exists as a well-established, if poorly defined, period in the study of South Asia’s past. Broadly accepted to have extended from around the seventh to thirteenth century c.e., the term “early medieval” has emerged in scholarship to define a particular phase of social and cultural development that mark it as being broadly distinguishable from the earlier ancient period that came before. Developments held to define the beginning of the early medieval include: the emergence of new political structures in both North and South India, a reorientation of exchange networks and urbanism across the subcontinent, and the crystallization of distinct regional cultures and identities ... <a href="https://muse.jhu.edu/journals/asian_perspectives/v053/53.1.hawkes.html">Read More</a>
