Human Behavior or Environmental Change: Zooarchaeological Research on Shell Midden Sites at Guanglu Island, China
This is an abstract from the "New Thoughts on Current Research in East Asian Archaeology" session, at the 84th annual meeting of the Society for American Archaeology.
The zooarchaeological research on Xiaozhushan, Menhou and Wujiacun shell midden sites, which are located in Guanglu island, provides empirical materials to understand the transformation of animal resources acquisition patterns from fishing-hunting economy to livestock way. This paper analyses the reasons for the appearance of wild and domestic animals in Guanglu island and the internal relation between animal resources acquisition patterns and animal population structure. We consider that human behavior caused profound influences on the animal population as prehistoric people landed on this island about 7000 years ago.
