Anthropologist Allard Discusses the Bronzes of Southeast Asia

In January 2014, Francis Allard travelled to Southeast Asia to carry out research on early metallurgy, and to present two papers.

The papers included: ‘The Bronze Age of Southeast China: Interrupted Trajectories and the Issue of Scale’ (at the 20th Congress of the Indo-Pacific Prehistory Association, Siem Reap, Cambodia), and ‘Han Imperial Expansion toward the South and Southwest: Perspectives from Archaeology and History’ (at the Vietnam Institute of Archaeology, Hanoi). He also conducted preliminary research for a long-term project designed to clarify the chronology and processes of bronze production in the region.

He was also named to the editorial board of ‘Asian Perspectives’, a journal dedicated to the archaeology of Asia and the Pacific Region.
