Neolithic China! Did those words send a tingle down your spine? Then this field school is for you! Only a few areas worldwide are cited as the birthplace of agriculture and a sedentary society, and China is one of the most notable of those. Come with us to study the Middle to Late Yangzhou period in our China- Yangguanzhai field program. Yangguanzhai has a moat, a row of cave dwellings, subterranean houses, child urn-burials, and extensive pottery kilns. In the coming 2017 season, the project will plan to continue working in the northeast portion of the site.
So if you’re interested in exploring one of the birthplaces of civilization in this fascinating landscape, join us this summer in Yangguanzhai. This is a well established program that has revealed many exciting things to the world of archaeology. Come be a part of what is discovered next!
