- Author BiographyAnke Hein holds the Peter Moores Associate Professorship for Chinese Archaeology at the Institute of Archaeology at the University of Oxford. She is an anthropological archaeologist focusing on pre-historic and early historic China. In 2013, she received her doctorate at the Interdepartmental Program in Archaeology at UCLA with a thesis entitled, Cultural Geography and Interregional Contacts in Prehistoric Liangshan (Southwest China). Her work in the region has resulted in publications in top-tier journals such as Quaternary International and Asian Archaeology, and in important Chinese archaeological journals such as Sichuan Wenwu. Her interest in questions of inter-cultural contact is reflected in an edited volume on The Crescent-Shaped Cultural-Communication Belt : Tong Enzheng's Model in Retrospect that was published in 2014. She has been involved in archaeological and ethnographic work in the mountains of Southwest China for many years. In her newest research project, she is turning her attention to another expression of group identities reflected by focusing on patterns of ceramic production and usage in prehistoric Northwest China.
