Synopsis: Ancient Central China provides an up-to-date synthesis of archaeological discoveries in the upper and middle Yangzi River region of China, including the Three Gorges Dam reservoir zone. It focuses on the Late Neolithic (late third millennium BC) through the end of the Bronze Age (late first millennium BC) and considers regional and interregional cultural relationships in light of anthropological models of landscape. Rowan K. Flad and Pochan Chen show that centers and peripheries of political, economic, and ritual activities were not coincident, and that politically peripheral regions such as the Three Gorges were crucial hubs in interregional economic networks, particularly related to prehistoric salt production. The book provides detailed discussions of recent archaeological discoveries and data from the Chengdu Plain, Three Gorges, and Hubei to illustrate how these various components of regional landscape were configured across Central China.

Book Description: This book is an archaeological study of regional landscape in the upper and middle Yangzi River region of Central China. The book reviews anthropological perspectives on interregional interaction and landscape and provides an up-to-date synthesis of archaeological discoveries in the region, including the recently flooded Three Gorges Dam area. The book highlights the importance of prehistoric salt production and trade and provides the only English language overview of archaeological finds in the region, offering a fresh perspective on archaeological landscape.
