China Archaeology Lecture Series
9-10 October 2015

We were privileged to hear wonderful presentations given by all the presenters at The China Archaeology Lecture Series, over the weekend of October 9-10, at the Chinese University of Hong Kong. Attendees had their eyes opened to the incredible and dedicated research and archaeological work currently being done in China, including Professor Zhang Chang Ping’s (Wuhan University) work on the Erligang site at Panlongcheng, Mr. Chu Xiao Long’s (Henan Provincial Institute of Cultural Relics and Archaeology) on Neolithic yue (ax), Professor Zhao Jun Jie’s (Jilin University) work on Goguryeo culture in northwest China, Professor Jing Zhong Wei’s (Jilin University) research into Northern Chinese bronzes in the context of cross-cultural exchange between the Central Plain and the Eurasian Steppe, Mr, Liu Hai Wang’s (Henan Provincial Institute of Cultural Relics and Archaeology) on a Han Dynasty village in Henan, and Mr. Huo Wei’s work in the Qijia culture site in Lajia, Qinghai.   Each session of lecture series included a question and answer segment, where astute questions were asked by the audience members, and where the speakers themselves also had an opportunity to share comments and feedback with each other, as fellow archaeologists.

We want to once again, thank the scholars who came here from various parts of China to share their research with us, and thank those who came!
