Description

BOOK DESCRIPTION
This work investigates the craft production system in the Western Zhou (China), through a case study of a 'jue'-earrings workshop at Qijia in the predynastic capital site of Zhouyuan, excavated in 2002-2003. Conclusions are drawn from several lines of evidence, including spatial relationships of material remains in archaeological context, various stages of 'jue' production wasters, the author's experimental replication of 'jue' manufacture, and written texts and bronze inscriptions.
