The newest issue of the Bulletin of the Museum of Far Eastern Antiquities (BMFEA) in Stockholm is a special edition for the 100th anniversary of the discovery of the Yangshao Culture by Johan Gunnar Andersson. For this special event, we have created a booklet of abstracts in both English and Chinese.

A PDF of the abstracts can be found here.

The volumes can be purchased from the shop at MFEA, one just send an e-mail if outside Sweden (in Sweden it can be purchased through the web shop – and in the Museum itself, of course if one is in Stockholm), see the following link for more details:
