Archaeology of the First Japanese State
An interesting and pioneering study of early state emergence in the Nara Basin
Research on the emergence of the early Japanese state all too often lacks information from an archaeological perspective, maintains author Gina L. Barnes. Protohistoric Yamato presents settlement data from Yamato, an ancient province that corresponds to present-day Nara Basin and the center of early Japanese civilization. Barnes also discusses urbanization, economic specialization, and state formation in protohistoric Japanese society.
