Japanese archaeology, in particular, with its rich excavation data and its long tradition of community engagement and public outreach, is in an excellent position to contribute to important contemporary debates the resilience of food systems and long-term sustainability of human society. This presentation will test a hypothesis that diversity and decentralization may be critical for maintaining long-term sustainability of human societies in the order of hundreds to tens of thousands of years.
