Encyclopedia of ancient Asian civilizations by Charles Higham( Book )
10 editions published between 2004 and 2007 in English and Chinese and held by 581 libraries worldwide
"The civilizations of Asia rose over a vast territory that stretched from the region of modern Afganistan and the Aral Sea to Japan and Korea, and from Sri Lanka (former Ceylon) to islands of Southeast Asia. Encyclopedia of Ancient Asian Civilizations is the first work to bring together the complete range of early Eastern states under one cover, from the Indus Valley civilization in approximately 3,000 B.C.E. through the Cambodian empires of Funan, Chenla, and Angkor that lasted until the 15th century. In many cases the civilizations included here have thus far been treated only marginally in the English language." "The encyclopedia begins with a lengthy introduction to the history of the region, followed by approximately 900 detailed, A-to-Z entries that cover archaeological sites, agricultural and economic development, personalities and political institutions, as well as articles on religion, trade, warfare, and other important topics." "Fifty black-and-white photographs and illustrations, four maps, cross-references, a chronology, further readings, a bibliography, and an index make the information easily accessible. Encyclopedia of Ancient Asian Civilizations is a resource for students researching the subject, as well as a useful scholarly reference."--Jacket

The excavation of Khok Phanom Di : a prehistoric site in Central Thailand by Charles Higham( Book )
49 editions published between 1990 and 2004 in English and held by 240 libraries worldwide
"Khok Phanom Di is a prehistoric site located in Central Thailand. An excavation there in 1985 removed cultural material from a 10 x 10 metre square to a depth of almost seven metres. The previous five volumes in this series have reported on the excavation, the environment, biological remains, aspects of material culture and the human skeletal material. The excavation revealed that over a period of half a millennium from about 2000 B.C., the site was a major ceramic production centre. This volume is the result of over 15 years intensive research on more than 12 tons of ceramics, including the complete pottery vessels found as mortuary offerings, anvils used to shape pots, cylinders of prepared clay, caches of sand used as tempering material, and the stands used to support firing platforms. Hundreds of thin sections have been prepared and analysed in order to identify both local and exotic wares, and minute details of the complex patterns of decoration on the vessels have been considered. The form of the vessels changed over time, and this, combined with the identification of the many fabric types, has allowed Dr. Vincent to distinguish four major ceramic periods. These he then relates to the cultural sequence and a major contribution to understanding the role played by pottery manufacture and exchange within the site, and with other communities within its trading orbit. This volume sets a precedent and a benchmark for the analysis of Southeast Asian ceramics by the acknowledged leader in this highly specialised and complex field."--Jacket

The excavation of Nong Nor : a prehistoric site in central Thailand ( Book )
4 editions published between 1997 and 1998 in English and held by 33 libraries worldwide
Nong Nor is a prehistoric coastal site located in the Chonburi Province, Southeast Asia. It was excavated between 1991 and 1993 and shows two phases of occupation: the first, c.2500 BC, a brief stay by a community of hunter-gatherers living on shellfish, dolphins and sharks; the second, an extensive cemetery of 170 graves dating to 1100-700 BC, some with grave goods and a small group of unusually wealthy ones. The authors, in their conclusion, suggest that the first inhabitants of Nong Nor may have been ancestral to the later inhabitants of nearby Khok Phanom Di
