Based upon research results of starch residues from the archaeological sites, the map of "archaeological discovery of ancient starch" is now updated. I chose another design of the map.
The following papers have been publihsed until now. Because Japanese reports are just only conducted by this blogger, the list indicates papers outside Japan.
