Lost Maritime Cultures: China and the Pacific

Lost Maritime Cultures features the extraordinary archaeological discoveries found in southeast China over the past half century. Research indicates that these “lost” civilizations, which came to light in the early 20th century, may be the ancestors of Austronesians. From unique pottery to splendid jade pieces, this full-color catalog showcases artifacts from some of the ancient maritime civilizations that flourished along the coast of China thousands of years ago.
