Some trends in Japanese archaeology: the 77th Annual Meeting of JAA

Some trends in Japanese archaeology: the 77th Annual Meeting of JAA_a0186568_1758243.jpgThe 77th Annual Meeting of Japanese Archaeological Association (JAA) have been held at Kokugakuin University, Tokyo.
JAA is the largest association for archaeologists in Japan, established in 1948, and now has about 4,200 members. Annual meeting of of JAA is conventionally held on 2days (Saturday and Sunday) in May. It seems too short schedule for such a large association. But it is caused by the character of member of JAA; majority of them are public or private company employees engaging cultural property and heritage management and it is difficult to join weekdays meeting. So we take place annual meeting and commemorative lectures on Saturday, and presentations on Sunday.
In the 77th annual meeting, 7 special sessions, 44 oral presentations and 23 poster presentations are submitted.

Title of special sessions are as follows (translation is not official, in my sense):session#1
Thinking ancient ritual structure through archaeological settings: methodology and perspective on Shinto archaeology
session#2
Use-wear/ or traceological studies on pottery: reconstruction of cooking method of Jomon, Yayoi and Haji-ki pottery refer with soot and burnt charcoal on pottery
session#3
Jomon agriculture revisited: with special reference to recent advances in archaeo-ethonobotany
session#4
Collaborative studies of archaeology and osteo-archaeology: on the case of Pleistocene human skeletal remains uncovered from Siraho-Saonetabaru Cave, Ishigaki City, Okinawa Pref., Japan
session#5
Searching on the difference of learning ability to make stone tools between Homo neandertalensis and H.sapiens
session#6
Archaeology in education: how teach Yayoi and Kofun Age for children, practice and problem
session#7
Great East Japan Disaster and archaeology: an urgent report of influence on cultural property and heritage management, and reexamination of post Great Hanshin earthquake campaign

The session#1 is on methodology of ritual archaeology especially on ancient Shinto concerning with history, Shinto studies and theoretical archaeology.
The session#2 is on functional studies of pottery with experimental archaeology.
The session#3 is on archaeo-ethonbotanical study to search domesticated plant remains in Japanese Is. Some presentations are including recent advantages in SEM examination of inprint on potsherds.
The session#4 is on palaeoanthoropological case study of Pleistocene skeletal remains from Shiraho-Saonetabaru Cave at Ishigaki I. (see the link page)
The session#5 is the prehistoric archaeological section of inter-disciplinary research project of 'Replacement of Neanderthals by Modern Humans: testing evolutionary models of learning'.
The session#6 and #7 are carried by special committees of JAA, issues on relation between community of archaeology/ archaeologists and public soceity.
