Research on Neolithic Settlements in the Guanglu Island and the Liaodong Peninsula, China
Author(s): Yingxi Jin
The Liaodong Peninsula was a hub that documented interactions across distinctive Neolithic cultures in northerneastern China and the northern Korean Peninsula. The Neolithic sites in Liaodong were neighbors with the Liao River (Liaohe) culture to its north; located across the Yellow Sea from the Huanghe culture; and were adjacent to the Chulmun Neolithic culture in Korea across the Yalu River. Thus Liaodong is a key region to understanding cultural interactions throughout the Neolithic period in Northeast Asia. The Institute of Archaeology of the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences has conducted fieldworks in several Neolithic shellmidden sites in the Guanglu Island in Liaodong for the last decade. This study focuses on changes in settlement patterns in the Guanglu Island and coastal sites in Liaodong.
