Sample text

The Wei zhi suggests Yamatai controlled most of western Japan in the third century, but the archaeological record does not support such a degree of political unification until much later. Archaeologists have proposed the existence of several chiefdom-type polities in western Japan in the Yayoi. These were regional polities based on a large, central settlement with populations of perhaps several thousand people. Such polities may correspond to the ‘‘countries’’ (Chinese guo) described in the Wei zhi but their political control did not extend beyond their particular basin or river valley.
