Asian Archaeology Group

The Asian Archaeology Group (AsAG) aims to provide a forum for new research and discussion for those working in the field of Asian Archaeology.

 

We hold talks that cover the Asian continent in all its diversity – from megaliths in Borneo and minarets in Turkmenistan to phytoliths in India and starch grains in China.
