  • Genuine Prestige Goods in Mortuary Contexts: Emulation in Polychrome Silk
           and Byzantine Solidi from Northern China
    • Abstract: The terms “prestige” and “prestige goods” figure very prominently in archaeological studies that seek to reconstruct past social orders. More often than not, status is used synonymously with prestige and, as a consequence, status symbols and prestige goods are treated without any degree of differentiation. The production and exchange of prestige goods are generally held to mark the beginning of social inequality and thus the start of complex society. Certain individuals actively used prestige goods to exert power over people who were not in possession of such objects.However popular such notions of prestige and prestige goods may be among archaeologists, remarkably, neither sociological nor archaeological ...

  • Out of Context, in Association: Human Remains Salvaged from the
           Mini-athiliya Shell Midden, Sri Lanka
    • Abstract: The region of South Asia has received considerable attention in the discussion of early dispersals of modern humans. While the skeletal record for anatomically modern human occupation of South Asia is generally sparse, Sri Lanka is a notable exception. Archaeological research in Sri Lanka over the last 150 years has yielded a wealth of important information. Modern humans have occupied Sri Lanka from the terminal Pleistocene, with early human remains from the island dated to 37,000 years ago (H.N. Perera 2010). People from the late Pleistocene to the mid-Holocene of Sri Lanka are commonly referred to as “Balangoda” people due to the discovery of numerous prehistoric archaeological sites from the Balangoda district ...

  • Human Foodways, Metallurgy, and Landscape Modification of Iron Age Central
           Thailand
    • Abstract: The association between environmental and human behavioral change, leading to multiscalar cultural change, is well-documented throughout human history. Natural environmental fluctuation and landscape modification (directly or indirectly caused by cultivation, animal husbandry, craft production, population expansion, conflict, etc.) contributed to cultural changes and stimulated a suite of coping mechanisms that are archaeologically visible (Bourke et al. 2007; Chapin et al. 2004; Zeder 2008). A wide variety of analytical approaches have been employed to identify these responses and characterize how people negotiated ever-changing landscapes. These approaches include, but are not limited to, methods derived from ... Read More

  • The Evolution of Curved Beads (Magatama 勾玉/曲玉) in Jōmon Period
           Japan and the Development of Individual Ownership
    • Abstract: The charm of the comma-shaped beads known as magatama, found throughout the Japanese archipelago and the Korean peninsula, has long attracted much interest from archaeologists, prehistorians, and the general public. These cashew-shaped stone beads are usually about 2–5 cm in length, and have a perforation through the larger, bulging end for hanging on a cord and wearing as a single pendant or as a chain necklace or bracelet interspaced with other kinds of beads (Ōtsubo 2015:29–30) (Fig. 1). Mizuno (1992:58–62) Slit earring and magatama beads: (a) slit-earring, Kagota site, Early Jōmon period (image from Iijimamachi Kyōiku Iinkai 1978); (b, c) standard-type magatama, Yayoi-Kofun periods (images by University of ...

  • Plant Microfossil Results from Old Kiyyangan Village: Looking for the
           Introduction and Expansion of Wet-field Rice (Oryza sativa) Cultivation in
           the Ifugao Rice Terraces, Philippine Cordilleras
    • Abstract: The Ifugao Rice Terraces in the Central Cordilleras, Luzon, were inscribed in the UNESCO World Heritage List in 1995, the first ever property to be included in the cultural landscape category of the list (Fig. 1). The nomination and subsequent listing included discussion on the age of the terraces. The terraces were constructed on steep terrains as high as 2000 m above sea level, covering extensive areas. The extensive distribution of the terraces and estimates of the length of time required to build these massive landscape modifications led some researchers to propose a long history of up to 2000–3000 years, which was supported by early archaeological 14C evidence (Barton 1919; Beyer 1955; Maher 1973, 1984).

           Tsang, Kuang-ti Li (review)
    • Abstract: Volume 3 in the Tainan Science Park (TSP) Archaeological Discoveries book series, this visually attractive book summarizes the results of more than ten years of rescue archaeology, beginning in 1996 and directed by Professor Tsang Cheng-hwa at the Tainan Science Park in Southern Taiwan, a complex of over 150 high tech factories employing approximately 60,000 workers. A local branch of the National Museum of Prehistory was included in the plan. At least one excavation team had over 100 workers and over 50 sites covering an area of 1043 ha have been excavated.The park lies on Holocene sediments deposited in the Tsengwen (Zengwen) River. Many of the sites are covered by around 2 m of alluvium, making their discovery ... Read More

  • The People Between the Rivers: The Rise and Fall of a Bronze Drum Culture,
           200–750 CE by Catherine Churchman (review)
    • Abstract: The People Between the Rivers is a masterful historical account of an important region, its peoples and chieftains, and the various Chinese administrative empires with which they constantly interacted. It provides a focused, interdisciplinary analysis of cultural interactions involving a neglected group of peoples over a large expanse of time, approximately 550 years. The author’s main sources are texts, mostly histories and other treatises written during the period under examination, but Churchman also brings broad insights and critical approaches from linguistics, archaeology, and anthropology to bear on the study; the result is nothing short of spectacular. This study provides a crucial missing link in the chain ... Read More

  • The Life of the Longhouse: An Archaeology of Ethnicity by Peter Metcalf
           (review)
    • Abstract: The work of anthropologist Peter Metcalf will be familiar to many archaeologists. His 1992 co-authored Celebrations of Death: The Anthropology of Mortuary Ritual is widely cited by burial archaeologists (Metcalf and Huntington 1992). Metcalf’s interest in the function and meaning of ritual in small scale communities stemmed from his doctoral research on Borneo in the early 1970s, and those who enjoyed Celebrations of Death should seek out his entertainingly detailed A Borneo Journey into Death (1982). A further short classic is Metcalf’s They Lie, We Lie: Getting on with Anthropology (2002), a highly recommended read for all archaeologists involved with community-based projects. In his latest book, The Life of the ... Read More

  • Glass in Ancient India: Excavations at Kopia by Alok Kumar Kanungo
           (review)
    • Abstract: Glass in Ancient India: Excavations at Kopia by Alok Kumar Kanungo (AKK) is a substantial work, reporting on five excavation seasons from 2004 to 2009 at the north Indian site of Kopia, which as early as 1891 was suggested to have been an ancient glass manufacturing site. Excavation in 1949 provided more evidence of glass production, including glass beads and other glass fragments, as well as fragments of reddish brown ceramic vessels thought to have been used as crucibles. Limited chemical analyses of the glass showed soda glass with high alumina and lower lime and magnesia (Roy and Varshney 1953). Based on this preliminary work, the author planned a new and more extensive excavation intended to focus particularly ... Read More

  • Mapping the Indo-Pacific Beads vis-à-vis Papanaidupet by Alok Kumar
           Kanungo (review)
    • Abstract: Alok Kumar Kanungo’s Mapping the Indo-Pacific Beads vis-à-vis Papanaidupet discusses the production of a particular kind of glass bead purported to have originated in South India over two and a half millennia ago. This Indo-Pacific glass bead is claimed to have spread across vast areas of southern and southeastern Asia as well as the eastern sub-region of the African continent. Borne from nearly two decades of Kanungo’s archaeological and ethnographic research on glass and glass beads in India and surrounding regions, this book maps the spread of the Indo-Pacific (IP) beads in Southeast Asia, documents the process of production of the beads at the extant glass bead making factories at Papanaidupet, and describes ...

Until his recent passing in October 2017, Dr. Yosihiko Sinoto (henceforth Yosi) occupied the Kenneth Pike Emory Distinguished Chair in Anthropology and was a Senior Anthropologist at the Bernice P.
