Chinese archaeologists have identified a number of archaeological manifestations that they attribute to shamanism.  These include music (drums, flutes, and bells), alcoholic beverages, and evidence of worship of the sky.  This talk examines the Chinese evidence, and then considers it in the broader perspectives of shamanism in East Asia from the Neolithic to the present.

Celebrate National Archaeology Day with us as we prowl through time to explore the role of cats in cultures around the world and through time. We'll climb up the cat family tree. And look into the future as we ponder what archaeologists will think about the plethora of cat videos. If you would like to create your own cat video, we'll show it on the screen during Family Day - just send a link to museumed@colorado.edu.
