 Borderland Archaeological Research Center of Jilin University and Inner Mongolian Institute of Cultural Relics and Archaeology, Neolithic Xiliang Site at

Jinggouzi in Linxi County, Inner Mongolia

   

    KEY WORDS: Inner Mongolia     Xiliang site     Neolithic Age   

                 Xiliang type

    ABSTRACT: The Xiliang site at Jinggouzi in Linxi County, Inner Mongolia, was excavated in 2003. 11 house-foundations and two ash-pits, and characteristic pottery, stone, bone and shell artifacts were discovered in the revealed area of 550 sq m. The site shows quite early Neolithic cultural features, including pottery with extremely distinctive attached strips and designs combined from them. Clearly different in cultural content from the Xinglongwa culture and other Neolithic remains in western Liaoning, this sort of recently ascertained archaeological complex can be named Xiliang type. The excavation of the site offered new knowledge of the system of Neolithic archaeological cultures in the western Liaoning region.

 

 

Zhu Yonggang, On the Xiliang Remains and Related Problems

 

    KEY WORDS: Xiliang remains    attached strips    Xiliang type

                 Neolithic cultural sequence in western Liaoning                 

    ABSTRACT: The archaeological remains represented by the Xiliang site constitute a new archaeological cultural type. With the pottery characterized by attached strips and the designs they combine to form as the important mark of its difference from other archaeological cultures, this type can hardly be assigned to any Neolithic cultural sequence already known in western Liaoning. These strips and their arrangement manners are similar to those in the Neolithic culture within the Songhuajiang-Nenjiang Plain and the middle Heilongjiang River valley, and, moreover, the cultural type under discussion shared the same fishing and hunting living mode with the Neolithic culture in the above mentioned regions. It can be concluded that the Xiliang type existed outside the main culture of western Liaoning and reflects cultural spread or people’s migration between regions. 

 

 

Epanggong Palace Archaeological Team of IA, CASS, and Xi’an Municipal

Institute of the Preservation of Ancient Monuments, Excavation of Building 

Ruins Nos. 1 and 2 on the Shanglinyuan Garden-site in Xi’an City

 

    KEY WORDS: Xi’an    Shanglinyuan garden-site    building ruins    

                 Warring States period

    ABSTRACT: In November 2004 and March—April 2005, two spots of ruined large-sized buildings were excavated to the west and southwest of the anterior pavilion of Epanggong Palace-site. On the No. 1 ruins, rammed-earth platforms, corridors and aprons were revealed in the south, i.e. in the palace area, and an L-shaped stone canal as remains of a stream sight vestige in the north, i.e. in the garden area. On the No. 2 ruins, in the lower part of remains is a two-tier rammed-earth platform with vestiges of superstructures on the surface, which must have been the foundation of a multi-storied high-platform building. All the material data from the two spots of building ruins date from the Warring States period. Their locations suggest that they are left over from the Qin State Shanglinyuan Garden of the Warring States period and had nothing to say with the building of the Epanggong Palace.

 

 

 

Weishan County Office for the Preservation of Ancient Monuments, Han Period Pictorial Stones Recently Unearthed from Weishan County, Shandong

 

    KEY WORDS: Shandong     Weishan County     pictorial stones     late

                  Western Han to Mid and late Eastern Han period

    ABSTRACT: In recent years, pictorial stones of the Han period were successively discovered in Liangcheng Township, Tanghu Township, Xiazhen Town and Nanyang Town of Weishan County, Shandong Province. The carvings are very rich in content, including buildings, human figures, animals, mythical beings, fantastic beasts and various decorative designs. They represent myths, historical stories, celestial maps, horse and chariot processions, acrobatics, hunting, granaries, kitchens, feasts and other living scenes, with dating inscriptions occurring in some cases. These works are greatly varied in type and made on the whole with two techniques: engraving in intaglio and carving in bas-relief. In date they can be assigned to the late Western Han to the mid and late Eastern Han period. These finds provide new data for studying the Han culture in the southern Shandong region.

 

 

 

Luoyang Municipal Archaeological Team, Excavation of the No. 1350 Tang Tomb at Guanlin in Luoyang City, Henan 

 

    KEY WORDS: Henan     Luoyang     Tang tomb at Guanlin     painted

                 pottery tomb-figurines

    ABSTRACT: In October 2003, the Luoyang Municipal Archaeological Team excavated a Tang period tomb at Guanlin in Luoyang City. This is a single-chambered earthen-pit grave consisting of a passage, a corridor and a chamber. Despite robbery and disturbance, it still yielded 65 pieces (sets) of various funeral objects, including pottery tomb-figurines, model animals and practical vessels, and a small number of porcelain, bronze and iron artifacts. The pottery tomb-figurines are rather great in number and are painted in colors; part of them are fine in decoration and lively in representation. Chronologically the tomb can be assigned to the later early Tang to earlier high Tang period. There was an important Tang burial area between Luoyang Guanlin to Longmen, and the discovery of the tomb offered new material for researching into the regionalization and burial custom of Tang tombs.

 

 

  

Qin Xiaoli, Research on the Evolution of the Pottery from the Erlitou to the Erligang Cultures in Southwestern Shanxi

 

    KEY WORDS: Southwestern Shanxi    Erlitou culture    Erligang culture 

                 evolution of pottery

    ABSTRACT: The evolutionary course of the pottery from the Erlitou to the Erligang cultures in southwestern Shanxi can be traced by analyzing the change of pottery in pedigree, the typological composition of pottery assemblages in different periods, the change of cooking vessels in capacity and the difference of cord marks in shape. It is very clear that the pottery was changed from multi-pedigree composition to the single-pedigree nature in the Yi-Luo and Zhengzhou system. As time went on, the contracted-necked li tripod absent in earlier times became to be used extensively, the previously prevailing deep-bellied jar decreased in number, and the change of vessels in capacity shows a reducing and standardizing tendency. These alterations were brought about commonly in the peripheral areas with the archaeological sites belonging to different systems, which reflected the unification of pottery making at that time.

 

 

 

Yu Lizi, A Study of Three Byzantine Gold Coins Recently Unearthed in Northwest

China

 

    KEY WORDS: Northwest China    gold coins    Byzantium

    ABSTRACT: Three Byzantine gold coins were recently unearthed from Anbian Town of Shaanxi and Qingshui County and Tianshui City of Gansu. Studies of their types, sizes, designs and legends indicate that the former two are Soliduses and the latter one Semissis, and that they were issued by the Byzantine emperors Zeno (474—491), Phocas (602—608) and Basiliscus (475—476) respectively. These coins were not imitations, but Byzantine legal tenders. Their appearance in Northwest China is a piece of evidence of Sino-Byzantine exchange through the Silk Road.

 

 

 

Zhang Xuelian and Qiu Shihua, Series Samples Dating Applied in the Xia-Shang-Zhou Chronology Project and Related Problems

 

    KEY WORDS: Xia-Shang-Zhou chronology project     14C dating    series

                  samples method    dendrochronological calibration  

    ABSTRACT: Series samples dating constitutes the 14C dating of samples unearthed from  archaeological sites and belonging to a relative chronological sequence and at the same time the emendation of the acquired 14C dates through dendrochronological calibration. As these samples are implicative of each other in date, the errors of their calendar dates dendrochronologically calibrated can be reduced to a great extent. The precondition of the application of series samples  dating is to establish highly precise dendrochronological calibration curves; and the acquisition of precise, reliable 14C dates and the correct application of the archaeological information of given samples insure the success of dating. The all-round analysis of examples of dating researches in the Xia-Shang-Zhou chronology project contributes to furthering the understanding and effective application of series sample dating.

 

 

   

Peter Kaulicke, The Neolithic Period in Northern Peru

 

    KEY WORDS: northern Peru       Neolithic period       chronology

    ABSTRACT: The Neolithic period in northern Peru spanned several millennia, during which there were a series of heavy changes that led to the formation of complex societies living mainly on hunting and gathering. The chronology of Neolithic northern Peru is based principally on stratigraphical evidence from open-air sites, material data from a few cave sites, pottery typology and pottery cross-dating. The early phase dates from 6000—1500 BC; the middle phase, 1500—600 BC; and the late phase, 600 BC—AD 100. The Neolithic in northern Peru can be seen as a long process towards civilization, a course full of diversity and dynamism, in which some important changes are still to be defined more precisely.
