WANG, Juan: A Zooarchaeological Study of the Haimenkou Site, Yunnan Province, Archaeology of East Asia 1, BAR Publishing, China 2018
Haimenkou was an important location, with trade and cultural links connecting parts of modern Southeast Asia and northwestern China in ancient times. This book is based on an analysis of the faunal assemblage recovered from the Haimenkou site during the 2008 field season in Yunnan Province, China. It investigates the human-animal relationships at Haimenkou through a time span running from the late Neolithic Period to the middle Bronze Age (ca. 5000-2400 BP).
