Survey in China (Liangzhu site group)

From February 26 (Mon) to March 2 (Fri), I went to Zhejiang Province in China as my survey in our cooperative project "Rice Farming and Chinese Civilization" and examined human bone remains from the Liangzhu site group. 

My survey were conducted into the core survey in late FY2017.  Together with other members, I examined all of human bones excavated from the end of FY2016 and FY2017, and I took dental calculus samples from 4 of them.
