The Archaeology of Death: A Case Study of Early Medieval Chinese Tombs

Chinese Translation of Albert E. Dien’s “Six Dynasties Civilization”

Professor Albert E. Dien's "Six Dynasties Civilization," based on a large database of over 1,800 tombs as well as historical and literary sources, is a valuable contribution to the comprehensive studies of the material cultures of the Six Dynasties. By examining systematically the age from prism of material cultures, this book enriches the Western scholarship in understanding the society during the "Dark Age," and brings a different yet crucial approach to Chinese scholarship. Publication of the Chinese version will advance the exchanges between the Western and Chinese scholars.
