  • NARA, JAPAN—The Yangtze region could predate the more politically powerful Yellow River area to the north as both the site of the oldest civilization in China and the earliest cultivation of rice anywhere on Earth, according to preliminary findings by a team of Japanese and Chinese archaeologists. The report comes from the International Symposium on Agriculture and Civilizations, held here last month.
