In 24 short essays, Robert Thorp takes the reader on a guided tour of some of the most important archaeological discoveries in China of the last century. These sites start with the ‘cave home’ of Peking Man near Beijing and conclude with the tomb of the Wanli emperor (d. 1620) in the Ming valley north of the capital. Physical setting, plan and structure, contents, and dating of each entry are laid out in clear prose with helpful maps, plans, and line art. ‘Visiting China’s Past’ also features an informative introduction to archaeology in China; its history, theory, and practice. A bibliography of English-language sources and an index to archaeological sites complete the volume.
