Research undertaken by Rowan Flad, Dept. of Anthropology, Harvard University, focuses on the site of Zhongba, in Zhong Xian County, Chongqing Municipality, China. Issues explored include the study of salt production at the site and how excavated remains relate to issues in economic anthropology. Research at Zhongba speaks to issues of trade and interregional interaction as well. Published works on this project have centered on analyses of animal remains from the site, radiocarbon dates and their significance in understanding technological change in the region, and how salt production in Zhongba can be used to study the nature of specialization at the site.
