Abstract: The origin of agriculture in China is one of the most poorly understood topics in world prehistory. However, a considerable database has been accumulated since the 1920s on this issue. In recent years several important archaeological discoveries have shed new light on the origin of rice cultivation in the Yangzi Valley. Some of these discoveries are reviewed. But the origin of millet domestication in the Yellow Valley is still very poorly documented, mainly due to the lack of archaeological and archaeobotanic data. This paper discusses some observations concerning the domestication of foxtail millet.
