Description
Paleolithic sites from one million years ago, Neolithic sites with extraordinary jade and ceramic artifacts, excavated tombs, temples and palaces of the Shang and Zhou dynasties -- all these are part of the riches of China’s antiquity. This magnificent book surveys the country’s archaeological remains and in the process rewrites the early history of the world’s most enduring civilisation, shedding new light on many aspects of Chinese life. With hundreds of reproductions of archaeological discoveries, including very recent ones.
A beautiful book . . . attractively formatted and has been expertly translated and edited. CHINA REVIEW INTERNATIONAL
