Example text

The talented translators and other bilingual assistants are well on their way to productive careers of their own in archaeology. A huge, special thanks is due to the following individuals who helped with a variety of tasks, including assistance with resolving questions about content, editing text, editing figures, and communication with authors: Guo Mingjian, Robert Murowchick, Lin Hu, Lin Minghao, Jason Nesbitt, Pauline Sebillaud, Steve Victor, Daniela Wolin, Andrew Womack, and Ingrid Yeung. I am very grateful to Jinping Wang for her invaluable assistance with the references to early historical Chinese texts.

Newspapers and websites are awash with stories of looted Chinese sites and antiquities. It is unnervingly easy to pull up online news reports of case after case of archaeological vandalism, some on a very large scale, that feeds the seemingly insatiable appetite for China’s antiquities. In 1986, for example, some 400 people from eight villages in central Henan collaborated on the pillaging of 500 tombs of the Western Zhou dynasty (11th–8th centuries BC), and in 1987 it was reported that thousands of farmers looted a thousand ancient tombs during a 10-day rampage in southern Jiangxi (Abrams 1987).

More recently, it has become one of China’s most powerful realestate developers in Beijing and other cities. Its Beijing office complex, hotel, and performance hall includes the lavish Baoli Art Museum (保利艺术博物馆), which focuses on the collection and display of ancient Chinese bronzes and early Buddhist statuary acquired on the international market as an effort to “repatriate” national treasures. At the contentious auction of Yuanmingyuan treasures in Hong Kong in 2000, Baoli ended up successfully bidding on the bronze ox, tiger, and monkey heads, paying a total of nearly $4 million.
