Many important archaeological finds have been excavated in China. These discoveries reveal hitherto unrecognised societies with mysterious beliefs and social systems. Human-like figures from the south-west and strange heads of monsters from central China are evidence of religions quite different from those practised by the great dynasties known from written records. Published as the catalogue of an exhibition at the British Museum from 13th September 1996 to 5th January 1997, sponsored by "The Times", this work presents essays by Chinese and European scholars reviewing recent research in the archaeology, history of religion and social development of ancient China.
