9780521772136: Ancient Jomon of Japan (Case Studies in Early Societies)

Despite an incredibly rich prehistory covering nearly ten thousand years, modern coverage of complex hunter-gatherer societies has tended to overlook the Jomon of Japan. This text presents an overview of the archaeology of the Jomon Period between 10,000 and 300 BC within the context of more recent complex hunter-gatherer societies. It bridges the gap between academic traditions in Japanese and Anglo-American archaeology and represents an invaluable source of reflection on the development of human complexity.

Book Description:

Despite an incredibly rich prehistory covering a period of nearly ten thousand years, modern discussion of complex hunter-gatherer societies has tended to refer to the Jomon of Japan in a rather cursory fashion. This important but accessible text presents an overview of the archaeology of the Jomon Period between 10,000 and 3 00BC within the context of more recent complex hunter-gatherer societies, and aims to bridge the gap between academic traditions in Japanese and Anglo-American archaeology. It represents an invaluable source of reflection on the development of complexity in human history.

Her publications include Subsistence-Settlement Systems and Intersite Variability in the Moroiso Phase of the Early Jomon Period of Japan, International Monographs in Prehistory (2001).

Book Description CAMBRIDGE UNIVERSITY PRESS, United Kingdom, 2012. Hardback. Book Condition: New. New.. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. In this 2004 book, Junko Habu illustrates recent developments in the archaeology of the Jomon period (circa 14,500-300 BC) of Japan and presents new analyses. Unlike most prehistoric pottery using peoples, the Jomon people are thought to have been hunter-gatherers. Evidence of plant cultivation does exist, but none of the cultigens recovered from Jomon sites seems to have been used as a staple food resource. High site density, food storage, and long distance trade also characterize this Jomon period. Using ecological models of hunter-gatherer culture and behavior, Habu examines various aspects of Jamon culture including subsistence, settlement, rituals, crafts and trade, and presents a model of long-term change in hunter-gatherer cultural complexity. In this comprehensive analysis, Junko Habu helps to bridge the gap between largely Japanese discourse on this 10,000 year period of Japanese prehistory and the modern scientific debate on later hunter-gatherer societies. It will prove invaluable to students and researchers alike. Bookseller Inventory # APC9780521772136
