Suspended Music: Chime-Bells in the Culture of Bronze Age China

Suspended Music: Chime-Bells in the Culture of Bronze Age China by Lothar von Falkenhausen
English | Mar 16, 1994 | ISBN: 0520073789 | 567 Pages | PDF | 12 MB

The Chinese made the world's first bronze chime-bells, which they used to perform ritual music, particularly during the Shang and Zhou dynasties (ca. 1700-221 B.C.). Lothar von Falkenhausen's rich and detailed study reconstructs how the music of these bells—the only Bronze Age instruments that can still be played—may have sounded and how it was conceptualized in theoretical terms. His analysis and discussion of the ritual, political, and technical aspects of this music provide a unique window into ancient Chinese culture.

The Making of Bronze Age Eurasia (Cambridge World Archaeology) By Philip L. Kohl
2007 | 320 Pages | ISBN: 052184780X | PDF | 10 MB

This book provides an overview of Bronze Age societies of Western Eurasia through an investigation of the archaeological record. Philip L. Kohl outlines the long-term processes and patterns of interaction that link these groups together in a shared historical trajectory of development. Interactions took the form of the exchange of raw materials and finished goods, the spread and sharing of technologies, and the movements of peoples from one region to another. Kohl reconstructs economic activities from subsistence practices to the production and exchange of metals and other materials.
