Temporal & spatial entanglements at the Neolithic Yuchisi site, China

The Yuchisi site is crucial for understanding the late Neolithic (3rd millennium BC) in China's northern Anhui province. It yielded rich evidence of settlement (houses and burials) which have been analyzed for household and intra-settlement activities. However, Yuchisi has more to offer when studied at a higher chronological resolution and in relation to other sites. This talk, will discuss the ways in which the site can be placed as a node into a network of the long-distance transfer of religious knowledge as well as practices of social memory formation between generations of occupants at the site.
