Hakka Enclosed Houses

November 7, 2004

I have used the book Hakka Enclosed Houses  extensively in building these pages.  I bought it at the Hehu (Crane Lake) New Residence Museum in Longgang Town for 98 renminbi.  Most of its English text is reproduced either on the history page, the villages page, or the houses page.

It may be available elsewhere; its ISBN is 7-5360-3182-3

There are chapters with brief descriptions and a lot of full-color pictures covering 16 Hakka houses, one ancestral temple, the Dapeng Fortress, and a final chapter lumping together "The Others."  Aside from the Preface and the brief descriptions, all text--including picture captions--is in Chinese characters.
