Summary

The inhabitants of Jeju island, Korea, maintained active trade routes with societies in the Korean Peninsula, the Japanese Archipelago, and mainland East Asia. These interactions are encoded in material culture, including imported pottery. Instrumental Neutron Activation Analysis provides high-resolution data on ceramic geochemistry that allows for differentiation among local Jeju clay sources, Peninsular clays, and those from farther afield. Samples from the earliest known pottery-bearing sites on Jeju through the historical period demonstrate the continuing role of overseas trade in Jeju society.
