      Abstract: This latest issue of Asian Perspectives highlights the ever-growing diversity of research across the Asian and Pacific regions. In addition to the journal’s usual content, this issue includes a special theme section about archaeology in Central Asia, including articles on Russia, Mongolia, and the Xinjiang Autonomous Region of China, organized by guest editor Annie Chan. We want to acknowledge the hard work Dr. Chan put into making this section coherent and drawing together high-quality scholarship that transcends the sometimes linguistically isolated scholarly communities who work on this complex region.We continue to welcome new manuscripts of original research and we encourage authors to contact the editors in ...

  • Skeletal and Dental Health of Precontact Marquesans: The Bioarchaeology of
           the Human Skeletons from Ha‘atuatua, Nuku Hiva, Marquesas Islands

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Robert Suggs undertook one of the first archaeological investigations of the Marquesas Islands in East Polynesia in the 1950s (Allen 2004). Included in his seminal survey and fieldwork on the island of Nuku Hiva in the northern Marquesas were excavations at Ha‘atuatua Bay on the northeast coast of Nuku Hiva. Using skeletal and dental indicators of health recorded in skeletons excavated by Suggs at Ha‘atuatua, this article examines the health, diet, and lifestyle of precontact inhabitants of the Marquesas Islands. In addition to examining possible sex-related differences in health among the adults from Ha‘atuatua, limited comparisons with skeletons from the Hane dune site on Ua Huka in the northern Marquesas as ...

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Settlement relocation refers to the process of a population settling in a new place away from the original homeland, either voluntarily or under compulsion. Such relocations have commonly and repeatedly occurred throughout global human history, triggered by a wide array of factors including but not limited to changes in access to resources, natural cataclysmic events, military interventions, acts of political and social engineering, and religious reform (Birch 2013; Chao 1985; Duan et al. 1998; Jiang 2005; Li, M. 2016; Price 1995; Rossman 2017; Shi 1997). Settlement relocation has led to significant sociopolitical and economic changes in relation to the formation of early villages, cities, and states (Birch 2012 ... Read More

           Traditions in Prehistoric Xinjiang (China) and Mongolia

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Organized clusters of stone structures are a stark and ubiquitous archaeological feature of the Inner Asian steppe. Diverse in form but rather homogenous in constructional concept, these built forms represent significant episodes of human activity, particularly in funerary and commemorative respects, from the beginning of the second millennium b.c.e. to late in the first millennium c.e. Interest in their distributional characteristics has stimulated a critical development in methods of spatial and statistical analysis tailored to the idiosyncrasies of prehistoric steppe landscapes, most notably through field studies of Bronze Age and Xiongnu sites in Mongolia (Allard and Erdenebaatar 2005; Brosseder and Miller ...

  • Archaeological Research in the Ili Region: A Review

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Archaeological excavations conducted in the Ili River Valley over the last century have shown that the region was a hub of early interaction in East Central Eurasia since prehistoric times. An increasing number of scholars worldwide have stressed the importance of the Ili Valley for understanding the influence and spread of the Andronovo (ca. 1900–1200 b.c.) and Saka (ca. first millennium b.c.) cultures into the region during the local Bronze Age (ca. 1500–1000 b.c.) and Early Iron Age (ca. 1000–200 b.c.), respectively (Dupuy 2016; Kuz’mina and Mallory 2007; Mei 2000; Mei and Shell 1999).1 As will become clear from the discussion below, the current state of understanding the prehistory of the Ili region stresses ...

  • Results of Field Research on Ancient Stonework in the River Valleys of

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Recent archaeological field research on the ancient stone structures that are scattered across the montane grasslands of today’s Xinjiang Uyghur Autonomous Region has yielded a large corpus of new materials pertinent to the study of settlement and funerary activities in western Tian Shan (Caspari, Betts et al. 2017; Chan 2017a; Chen 1990, 2017; Guo 2011; Jia et al. 2017). The majority of field campaigns investigating structural remains have been carried out in the contiguous river valleys of Bortala and Ili (Fig. 1, Fig. 2). These have integrated excavations with extensive field surveys and aerial imaging, a distinct methodological shift from the traditional approach in Xinjiang archaeology centered around ... Read More

      Abstract: Few detailed, large-scale archaeological surveys of the landscape have been conducted in Xinjiang. Our knowledge of the macroregional distribution of material remains is extremely limited despite the obvious importance of Xinjiang for answering questions relating to early Eurasian transmission processes and cultural dynamics along the prehistoric “Silk Road(s)” and “Inner Asian Mountain Corridor” (Frachetti 2013; Frachetti et al. 2017; Kuzmina 2008). Most available datasets, including those from the Xinjiang Weiwu’er Zizhiqu Disanci Quanguo Wenwu Pucha Chengguo Jicheng 新疆维吾尔自治区第三次全国文物普查成果集成 [Compendium of the Third Xinjiang Uyghur Autonomous Region Cultural Relics Survey, XIA 2011], lack the detail, in terms of ...

  • Advancing Archaeological Research of the Mongolian Altai through the

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: At present, studying the culture of the nomadic peoples of the Mongolian Altai of the Arjan-Mayemir period (the first few centuries of the first millenium b.c.) is difficult due to a general absence of archaeological remains of settlements. Although a substantial number of funeral-memorial complexes have been dated to this period, with some being large in scale (e.g., Turbat et al. 2009), very few objects have been recovered from them. Ancient looting and modern destruction of these sites are ubiquitous problems. So far, museums in the region have gathered a very small collection of copper and bronze artifacts that were either found inadvertently or by local prospectors using metal detectors; other finds have been ...

      Abstract: The companion monographs Afetna Point, Saipan and Yellow Beach 2 after 75 Years offer a significant perspective on the history of a modest parcel of land on a small island in a remote corner of the Pacific. Although much of the parcel in San Antonio, Saipan had been disturbed by a deep sand mine, historic preservation officials for the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands (CNMI) had identified the area as having high potential for significant archaeological and historical resources, both pre-and post-contact (including a WWII American invasion beach). The archaeological project conducted by Boyd Dixon and his colleagues vindicates the wisdom of CNMI in anticipating the significance of the project area. That ... Read More

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Uzma Rizvi’s book provides a critical new perspective on an important regional archaeological landscape that has largely been marginalized as a somewhat enigmatic frontier backwater of the Indus Valley Civilization (IVC). Northeastern Rajasthan during the third millennium b.c.e. was a significant place of IVC resource extraction (copper), yet one that developed neither the well-known cultural nor sociopolitical trappings of its neighbor’s supra-regional, urban-rural “civilization.” Indeed, while much analytical effort over the past three decades has gone into understanding the role of craft production in the social and political organization of the IVC, other important regional loci of local craft production and ...

  • The Politics of the Past in Early China by Vincent S. Leung (review)

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: In his introductory chapter, Leung forcefully dismantles the essentializing notion, pervasive in older Sinological writings, that references to the past in early Chinese texts were overwhelmingly didactic in their motivation. He instead proposes to focus on the “deliberate mobilization of the field of the past as ideological capital toward the construction or deconstruction of various political arguments and ethical ideas” (p. 13). So far, so good, but can anyone come up with a new and truly superior understanding' As one reads on, such initial doubts are quickly dispelled. Chapter by chapter, Leung carefully builds a compelling and, as far as I am able to judge, quite original argument that does justice both to ... Read More

  • World Heritage and Human Rights: Lessons from the Asia-Pacific and Global
           Arena ed. by Peter Bille Larsen (review)

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Heritage and rights, ethical domains that sometimes overlap like Venn circles, also often erupt into discord, pitting local cultural values against a universalism born of colonial domination and still embedded in the lofty presumptions of what UNESCO recognizes as “Outstanding Universal Value.” Regional (Asia-Pacific) coverage is necessarily uneven both because the record is itself highly variable and because authors are treading on political eggshells. That much is clear from the nine case studies and five legal reviews laid out in this cautiously optimistic volume. Amid multiple contradictions in legal writ and practice, several important common themes emerge. Consent, participation, and prosperity, along with a ... Read More

           Investigation in an Archaeological Terra Incognita by Manjil Hazarika
           (review)

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: The subtitle of Prehistory and Archaeology of Northeast India refers to northeast India as an archaeological terra incognita; this is certainly no exaggeration. This volume is thus an important contribution to the history and archaeology of this fascinating yet understudied region. The northeast is here defined as including the Indian states of Arunachal Pradesh, Assam, Manipur, Meghalaya, Mizoram, Nagaland, and Tripura, a vast area bordered by Bangladesh, Bhutan, China, Nepal, and Myanmar. Almost completely overlooked by archaeologists, this region is a critical border zone between what is traditionally defined as South Asia and Southeast Asia. Its complex history reflects this interstitial location; one hopes ... Read More

  • The Archaeology of Afghanistan: From Earliest Times to the Timurid Period
           ed. by F. R. Allchin, Warwick Ball, and Norman Hammond (review)

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Afghanistan is without doubt one of the most important regions of the world for understanding the interactions between humans in Asia and beyond, beginning from the earliest period of hominin evolution up until the present. This region has attracted antiquarians and historians from the earliest periods of recorded history and has been a magnet for archaeologists, numismatists, and art historians since the eighteenth century. The first comprehensive volume on the archaeology of Afghanistan, published over four decades ago (Allchin and Hammond 1978), was one of the most important resources for scholars working on the history of the region. This new revised and updated edition provides an amazing amount of detail that ... Read More
