Lifeways of Prehistoric Hunter-Gathers in Japan

The work this summer will entail laboratory analysis of prehistoric food remains, such as charred nutshells and fruit seeds, retrieved from archaeological soil samples, which will take place at the Research Institute for Humanity and Nature in Kyoto. We will also collect additional soil samples at the Jomon period Goshono site in Iwate Prefecture, and do museum research at the Saru River Historic Museum, Hokkaido.

Message to Sponsor

Thank you for helping me assist Dr. Habu in Japan this summer. I am grateful to have the opportunity to work hard on this project. As an employed transfer student, this academic opportunity --made possible by you-- is so meaningful that I am unable to find the right words. I am truly grateful. Thank you.
