First farming from China to Southeast Asia

9 July 2013

Prof Dorian Fuller's world-leading research on the development of agriculture is being presented as a series of public events in China. Following his talk in Guangdong Province in 4 July, Dorian continued his journey to Yunnan Province. On 8 July, Dorian gave a lecture at Yunnan Provincial Institute of Cultural Relics and Archaeology entitled "At the crossroads of Asian agriculture: Yunnan and the comparative study of pathways to agriculture in China and tropical Asian". 

The invitation formally recognises the beginning of Dorian's new ERC-funded research project on Comparative Pathways to Agriculture and the continuation of his ground-breaking research on the evolution of rice agriculture with the recent award of another large NERC research grant.
