Archaeologist-Led Studies on Bronze Casting in Ancient China: 1928–2000 (2017)


Chinese bronzes are both valuable archaeological remains and significant objects of study in the history of art and technology due to their unique style, complex functions, and technological sophistication. In 1928, the archaeological excavation in Anyang was regarded as the symbol of the establishment of the field of Chinese archaeology. By 2000, tens of thousands of bronzes, and some bronze foundries had been excavated and studied. In archaeologist-led studies, the issues involved are generic, and their scope is restricted, while in multi-disciplinary studies involving both archaeologists and historians of technology, the research is more specific, indicating that research effectiveness and scientific collaboration are closely correlated.
