Archaeology in the East and the West free pdf The book presents papers from a conference that was held in Beijing on 26-27 September 2005, in collaboration between the Swedish National Heritage Board (NHB) and the Institute of Archaeology, Chinese Academy of Social Sciences (CASS). The conference marked a fresh start for archaeological collaboration between Sweden and China.

The papers describe archaeological projects and problems, such as urbanization processes and 'Neolithization', and the special sciences pursued in respective institutions: palaeobotany, osteology, archaeometallurgy, conservation, and digital survey methods.
