Hi, I’m Gong Yangmin and I’m from Chengdu city, Sichuan province, China. From 2002 to 2009 I studied Archaeology in Sichuan University, and now currently work as an archaeologist in Chengdu Archaeology and Cultural Relics Research Institute. As a visiting scholar at the Center for American Archeology, I come to the field programs of the Center for American Archeology this year mainly to understand field methods and the use of geophysics in archaeological research. The geophysics is very useful on the sites and cemeteries which can’t be excavated. It’s cheap and helpful in getting much information about the site’s area, depth and position. It is especially useful for interpreting human culture which contain stone artifacts. I think the geophysics will be used more and more as the days go by.

I excavated several prehistoric sites and many cemeteries from Han to Tang dynasty of China. Joining in the various CAA field programs will improve our methods, skills and ways.

I’m glad to know you and hope for this blog to become a place of valuable archaeological exchange.

Thanks!

大家好,我叫龚扬民,来自中国四川,现在工作于成都文物考古研究所。从2002至2009年我一直在四川大学学习考古学,以中国汉唐考古为主要研究方向。此次来美访问,主要是想了解在考古调查研究中地球物理学的运用以及美国田野考古方法。

随着时代的发展,地球物理学在考古过程中的运用将会日益广泛深入,对于中国考古意义深远。在访问期间也会把个人在国内的一些发掘成果和研究与美国同仁分享,以达到更好的交流。

很高兴认识大家,希望此处成为考古交流的圣地。

感谢大家!
