Abstract: Research regarding Japanese archaeological history up until now has been advanced with a central focus on investigation and research in the Japanese archipelago (the naichi [“domestic territory”] or Japan proper.) Meanwhile, archaeological research in the gaichi (“overseas territories”)—areas outside the Japanese archipelago that were temporarily made territories of Japan—has hardly been taken up as a matter of consideration. This paper, taking archaeological history to be a part of modern Japanese history, summarizes the significance of research in the overseas territories. The “Greater East Asia Co-Prosperity Sphere” was a concept that came to be espoused in 1932 for the sake of establishing the framework for a new order in East Asia, and throughout East Asia there was archaeological research carried out in connection with the policy. Following the annexation of Korea in 1910, the post of Governor-General was established on the Korean Peninsula, and research was conducted throughout the region, with research locations established in Pyongyang, Gyeongju and Buyeo under the Government-General Museum of Chosen. Research on Han dynasty tombs in the Lelang region is specially noted. With the establishment in 1932 of Manchukuo in northeastern China, the Far-Eastern Archaeological Society, organized in Japan proper, independently carried out archaeological research. The northern region of China was called Hokushi (“North China”), and the Far-Eastern Archaeological Society took on research in this region as well, researching sites that included Han dynasty tombs and the Yungang Grottoes. In the southern region of China, research on matters such as artifacts excavated at Yinxu in the Nanjing area was carried out by Japanese scholars as well. That is to say, in the early Showa period (1926–1945), following the Sino-Japanese war that began in 1937, archaeological research was conducted primarily by Japanese official scholars in colonies that were occupied under the framework of the Greater East Asia Co-Prosperity Sphere; and this point is verifiable as a characteristic feature in the archaeological history of the era.
