China

China plays an important part in world archaeology, offering not only rich archaeological data, but also new possibilities for alternative theoretical approaches. The Institute of Archaeology is currently carrying out research on China's neolithic cultures (in particular on archaeobotany and environmental archaeology), the Bronze Age and historical archaeology. The subject is presented from a comparative perspective, and the cultural exchanges and interactions between China and other civilizations are examined. Other subjects at the Institute - such as material sciences, conservation and heritage - also make use of Chinese archaeological material, and are building strong links with China’s academic institutions. The Institute is also home to the International Centre for Chinese Heritage and Archaeology (ICCHA), a joint venture between UCL and Peking University.
