Description
 
This book details the exploration of archaeological sites on the highest parts of the Tibetan plateau conducted by the author on his Changthang Circuit Expedition in 1999. This pioneering research lays the groundwork for pre-Buddhist studies in Tibet by providing the requisite data needed to forge ahead in our understanding of prehistoric and protohistoric Tibet. The book begins with a comprehensive introduction to the pre-Buddhist culture, people and environment of Tibet. Particular attention is paid to why prehistoric man chose to permanently reside in one of the harshest environments in the world and to the adaptive religious strategies which were an integral part of the settlement process.
