摘要The presence of Han-style artifacts in present-day Guangzhou after Emperor Wu’s conquest and its implication for understanding the ruling strategy of the Han Empire in the South have attracted broad attentions in previous literature. Among the material package of Han-influence, the introduction and widespread of iron objects were often considered as one critical component. Nonetheless, the types of manufacturing techniques, and to what extent the iron technology of objects from Guangzhou is similar to that in the Central Plains region, have yet been comprehensively addressed and analysed. This paper introduces latest results of our metallurgical project collaborated with Guangzhou municipal institute of archaeology and cultural relics to study Han-period iron objects. The results show that, even though the majority of iron objects show a technological tradition (cast iron tradition) similar to that in the Central Plains regions, some collected samples were very likely to be manufactured via the process of bloomery iron, a technique that might have been related to local iron manufacturing.
