I'm involved in bronze destruction and deposition phenomena in the Shang Dynasty of China. Through a comparative study on the explanation system of bronze hoard and destruction between Central Plain and local political entities (e.g. the ancient state of Shu, Dongyi, Qiang and Tufang state), I attempt to find another discourse system for reference in the perspective of the local forces.

Curriculum vitae

Jingjing entered Shandong University for his master's degree in 2017 and began studying archaeology. After completing his master's program, he received his master's degree in 2020. His master's thesis was a case study on the phytoarchaeology of the Qingqiu mound site, analyzing the chronological changes in the phytoarchaeological record of the site from the Neolithic to the Qing dynasty, studying social archaeology from the perspective of economic archaeology. Jingjing commenced his PhD studies at Leiden University in 2021, with financial support from CSC where he studied the bronze deposition of the Shang dynasty.
