Sample text

Gradually the term also began to be used to refer to a period and culture within the archipelago, now argued to have begun with the first appearance of pottery at about 10,500 BC. In 1884, a few years after Morse did his work at Omori, a pot missing its rim was found in another part of Tokyo. This vessel also displayed cordmarked decoration and differences between it and other Jomon wares were not immediately remarked upon. Other finds followed, however, and in 1896 the pottery was given the name Yayoi, since it had first been found in the Yayoi district, which now forms part of the Hongo Campus of the University of Tokyo (Tsuboi 1971a[1889]; Makita 1896).

Medieval perceptions of the impurity of the regions beyond the state boundaries were, however, clearly at work in this predominantly spatial model. The addition of a historical perspective was the crucial development of the nineteenth century. The appropriation of the Ainu into Japanese (pre)history has many facets and requires location in the complex discourses of colonialism and exploration. g. Caron and Schouten 1935, 13). Most eighteenth-century Japanese writings on Ezo origins were based primarily on ancient Chinese accounts of northern barbarians.

In an article in Popular Science Monthly (1879b) Morse described not only his work at Omori but also Japan's mythical history. The early chronicles were not critically evaluated, and written records were apparently presented as the context within which Japanese archaeology should be undertaken and understood (Bleed 1986, 66). Though less well known than Morse, Heinrich Philipp von Siebold (a son of Philipp Franz) excavated as many as seven shell middens in Japan in the late 1870s (Kreiner 1980).
