Adonqolo: New Type of Bronze Age Remains in the Western Tianshan Mountains

Bronze Age social and cultural interconnections across the Eurasian steppe are the subject of much current debate.A particularly significant place is occupied by the Andronovo Culture or family of cultures.Findings from the Adonqolo suggest the western Tianshan,China,is an assembly region with the specific cultural remains related to the Andronovo complex.The site is well preserved and offers robust potential for deeper study of the Andronovo culture complex.It also provides evidence for understanding the development of social complexity in this area.A new series of radiocarbon dates derived from Adonqolo challenge the existing models of eastward cultural dispersion,and demonstrate the need to reconsider the older chronologies and migration theories,particularly in the eastern mountain regions.
