Summary

Intensive archaeological research in Jeju Island, Korea conducted over last three decades have produced a rich set of spatial data on archaeological sites and feature distributions across the island. While these spatial data have high potential for improving archaeological understanding of past human activities, a systematic analysis of spatial data from Jeju has yet to be fully undertaken by archaeologists. In this study, we employ spatial analysis on high-resolution topographic data to enhance our understanding of landscape-driven subsistence strategies and settlement patterns. While we limit our scope to Neolithic data for this study, we anticipate that spatial analysis will contribute to a long-term understanding of human-environmental interactions on the island.
