The Huayuanzhuang East oracle bone inscriptions (殷墟花園莊東地甲骨) form a corpus of more than 2,500 individual divination accounts, which were engraved on turtle shells and bovine scapulae in the late Shang dynasty (c. 1200 B.C.). The book offers the first complete English annotation of these fantastic epigraphic texts and introduces the reader to key aspects of daily life in early Chinese civilization.
