Abstract
Accelerator Mass Spectrometry radiocarbon dates for rice husks and grains embedded in the fabric of pottery from India, Sarawak, and Bali are presented. Although it is not possible to prove that these specimens are all from cultivated and domesticated rices, their cultural and biogeographical contexts suggest that this was the case. The results can be used to support a dispersal of rice cultivation from the presumed Yangzi homeland to as far as the Ganga Valley and equatorial Malaysia by at least the mid-third millennium B. C. KEYWORDS: Rice, prehistory, India, China, Southeast Asia.
