A Study of Conservation Models for Industrial Heritage of Modern Times【Author】 LV Jian-chang(Shanghai University; Shanghai 200444)
【Abstract】 There are various forms of industrial heritage,of which,the conservation model also varies according to specific protection requirements and the concerns for urban development and environment protection.While each conservation model has its particular targets that it serves best,each bears insufficiency.For example,the Museum Model is easy to approach and more favorable in terms of conservation and utilization.It is,however,less profitable,and may cause fiscal pressure.Such problems affect the quality and effectiveness
of industrial heritage conservation, calling for more investigations into the models of conserving and reusing industrial heritage.
【Key words】 industrial heritage; the model of conservation; museum;

On the Origin of Agriculture and Theoretical Change of the Broad Spectrum Revolution
【Author】 PAN Yan CHEN Chun(Department of Cultural Heritage and Museology of Fudan University; Shanghai 200433);
【Abstract】The Broad Spectrum Revolution is an important theoretical concept in the studies of the origin of agriculture around the world.Since 1960s,this theory has been used to explore the change of human foraging strategies and subsistence patterns,and has achieved encouraging results.In the half century that followed,this concept has been continuously tested,elaborated and improved,and challenged by new data as well.At present,the subsistence shift of the tranitionary period at the time is increasingly becoming a concern in archaeological studies in China. A proper understanding of this concept will be helpful to improve our research standard and provide a profitable theoretical orientation for the study of the origin of agriculture.

A Review of Research on the Origin of Agriculture in Southeast Asia【Author】LI Yi-yuan(School of Archaeology and Museology of PeiKing University; Beijing 100008);
【Abstract】 It has been more than a half-century since the research on the origin of agriculture in Southeast Asia started to be carried out in the 1950s.Numerous archaeological discoveries have indicated that the nature of the early agriculture in Southeast Asia was based on the domestication of root crops and the cultivation of tubers,and that the characteristics of early agriculture in this region were closely related to the practices of arboriculture.Yet the time scale of the agricultural origin has not been well established. Due to the particularity
of the plant remains and agricultural features in this region, scholars have applied multiple research methods and developed a range of different concepts. The research into the agricultural origin in Southeast Asia is instructive to the exploration of early agriculture in Southeast China.
