In later this month, I'm conducting my new surveys in Niigata (URL: Japanese only, November 22-25) → Hokkaido (November 27-29) successively. I will take residue samples from potteries in Niigata and take samples from stone tools in Hokkaido. Regarding the Kitakogane Shellmound, I've got the following paper.
