Early Medieval China is a journal devoted to academic scholarship relating to the period roughly between the end of the Han and beginning of the Tang eras. Boundaries in historical time are rarely abrupt or sharp, so the journal's coverage is occasionally extended in either direction. The focus, though, remains on the people, events, and culture of the years 220-589 A.D.

This journal is maintained by the Early Medieval China Group; the web archive is maintained and hosted by the University of Florida , Department of Languages, Literatures & Cultures.

Editor: Cynthia L. Chennault
Book Review Editor: Alan J. Berkowitz

Early Medieval China is indexed in the MLA International Bibliography.
