As multi-functional as they are artistically important, folding and standing screens assume a variety of roles unique to the cultures of East Asia. Frequently used in dwellings, temples, and tombs, East Asian screens have a rich history from ancient times up to the modern period, and yet they rarely have been examined as an art form in themselves. This volume of essays makes the art of screens its focus of inquiry. Originally written for the Center for the Art of East Asia’s 2011 symposium, “The Screen in East Asia and Beyond,” these nine essays take a fresh look at the complexity of this traditional art form by presenting the most recent art historical research and analysis of archaeological evidence. Starting from Bronze Age China, the essays address the historic use of screens in East Asia, the materials used in their creation, and the significance of their artistic content. The essays explore a variety of philosophical, religious, political, aesthetic, and gender issues related to the production of the screens. These scholarly studies are suitable for serious students and can also be appreciated by a broad range of art audiences.

Cultural Relics Press, 2007. 《军都山墓地（全4册）》介绍的为玉皇庙墓地的资料，葫芦沟、西梁土光两处墓地的考古发掘报告也将近期出版。1985-1991年北京市文物研究所军都山考古队以冀北山地东周时期含直刃匕首式青铜短剑为主要内涵特征之一的文化遗存为专题，在北京市延庆县军都山进行了考古调查，并选定了玉皇庙、葫芦沟、西梁土光三处墓地作了科学发掘，  共发掘东周时期墓葬594座，出土各类富有特点的大小文物6万余件。其中以玉皇庙墓地规模最大，出土文物最为丰富，所获资料系统而完整，是迄今冀北山地一带所发现的此类文化遗存中最具代表性和有重要学术价值的一批资料，其文化面貌既不同于燕和中原文化，也不同于同时期的夏家店上层文化，特命名为玉皇庙文化。发掘者从地望、时代、文化内涵与埋葬制度特征，以及经济形态特点，并结合历史文献记载考证，“玉皇庙文化”的主人应与中国先秦历史上以畜牧和游牧为生的山戎部族有关，军都山墓地应是东周时期聚居在这一带地域的山戎部落墓地。 这三处墓地的考古学资料，对探索冀北山地此类文化遗存的源流与发展具有突破性意义，对历史学、考古学、民族学、科技史与艺术史研究具有重要参考价值。.
