Summary

The Austronesian expansion both in Island Southeast Asia and Oceania after the Neolithic times is one of the famous cases of human maritime colonization and adaptation in the world. This paper explores the evidence of Neolithic to Early Metal-aged maritime networks and maritime adaptation in East Indonesia or northern part of Wallacea based on our recent excavations in Northern Maluku and Central Sulawesi as well as some other latest archaeological outcomes in Island Southeast Asia. We summarize the excavation results, explore their implications for reconstructing maritime networks and adaptation, then also discuss the possible human colonization and inter-islands networks between Island Southeast Asia and the Pacific Islands mainly Near Oceania after Lapita times.
