Archaeology of East Asia

Series editor: Anke Hein (University of Oxford, UK)

This series provides a platform for data-rich studies on a variety of topics and materials from all over East Asia as well as conference proceedings reflecting the newest research insights and trends. The series takes a regional approach to East Asia, encouraging projects that cross national borders, even into adjoining regions and/or cover areas usually overlooked in mainstream research. This includes all parts of China, Japan, Korea, Mongolia, the Russian Far East, the Tibetan Plateau as a whole and the northern reaches of Southeast Asia. Especially encouraged are submissions proposing and conducting new approaches and methods in all aspects of archaeology including scientific techniques, spatial analysis, various digital methods, but also theory and model-based or traditional chronology-focused studies.
