  • 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.

He is a Senior Research Fellow at the Tibet Center, University of Virginia, and has lived in high Asia for three decades.
