Sidan 22 - ... ceramics). Before we leave the question of the Yang Shao Tsun ceramics we should mention that in one coarse, thick fragment we observed numerous imprints of plants which, as will appear from a description in the final chapter by G. Edman and E. Soderberg, have been shown to be husks of rice (Oryza sativa L.), which was thus cultivated at Yang Shao Tsun by the people of the late Stone age. This extremely important discovery, for which we have to thank the acumen and erudition of the above-mentioned...
Sidan 7 - Life is still very simple and existence is hard. Interest is therefore centred in material things and the maintenance of life directs activity predominantly to the cultivation of the fertile loess soil. The most fatally incalculable factor of the seasons is the rainfall. Since reckless felling has destroyed the last remnants of the primeval forests which, by the evidence of the Stone-Age deposits, once covered the land, the treeless loess plain has become exceptionally sensitive to changes in the...

Sidan 149 - ... by a certain head, or chia-chang, the persons living under these arrangements belong to an economic family. On the other hand, when they are economically independent they belong to different economic families. Ordinarily an economic family is composed of father, mother or mothers, grandparents — frequently a grandmother — the children of the father, and the wives of the children with their young children.
Sidan 149 - ... mentioned in FY. Furthermore, Bielenstein's map has served to do more than just show the localization and density of the population. It allowed him to follow the routes of the immigrations. As to the centers of large concentrations of people on the great plain, from where the emigrations had started, "it is possible, to a certain extent, that they still show the sites of the old feudal states, although great changes must have taken place since then.
Sidan 7 - Age deposits, once covered the land, the treeless loess plain has become exceptionally sensitive to changes in rainfall. If the normal light rainfall fails, there is no reserve of moisture in the plateau, which is drained by innumerable ravines. If, on the other hand, the summer rains come with the violence of a cloudburst, as not infrequently happens, the ravines are widened with catastrophic rapidity. New miniature ravines are formed in a single night of rain, houses are threatened and roads diverted.
Sidan 84 - ... Lower two-thirds of the vessel covered with vertical basket pattern which is obliterated in the upper one third, the surface of which together with the collar is smooth with fine concentric lines indicating wheel work. The vessel has one (probably originally two) lugs, rectangular-oval in basal-plan, triangular in vertical section, with two deep notches on the upper side, but smooth below. Height 295 mm. , diam. of mouth 208 mm. At first I interpreted this perforated vessel as a kind of colander...
Sidan 90 - ... which is from a new locality. Fig. 1. Ware light grey. This large vessel is of an exceedingly fragile build, the ware being only 2-4 mm in thickness. The specimen was collected in a large number of fragments and the bottom was missing. However, at the same place were found several equally thin walled bottoms of the same ware and surface pattern, and to judge from those it seems probable that the vessel had a flat bottom with the side-wall smooth nearest to the bottom. The larger part of the outside...
Sidan 80 - Legs and body on both out- and inside covered with mat-impression which ia however everywhere rather obliterated. Collar smooth, not set-off from body. Color of surface grey, in certain parts brownish. Diameter of mouth 137 mm.; Total height 263 mm.; height of collar 47 mm. Length of lug 106 mm. ; width of lug in lower, narrower part 32 mm., in upper part 40 mm. Plate VIII. Tripod Li of clay (Jig. 1) and bronze (fig. %-$) . Reduction approximately 1/3. Fig. 1 . Clay tripod of the type Li from Pu...
Sidan 40 - ... surface is covered with oblique basket pattern which is smoothened out and obliterated at the apex. The shape of the mouth remains unknown. Ware grey, thickness 7 mm. at the apex, 3 mm. in the higher part. Fig. 3. This is a fragment of a vessel of conspicuous and complicate shape. The ware is grey, 5-7 mm. thick. In the upper part the vessel is a simple pot, the bottom of which was probably slightly rounded as indicated by the figure. From the side of this pot an outer wall extends downwards...
