Subsistence Strategy, Pottery Use, and the Role of Animal Hunting on the Neolithic Korean Peninsula
Author(s): Seungki Kwak
This is an abstract from the "New Evidence, Methods, Theories, and Challenges to Understanding Prehistoric Economies in Korea" session, at the 84th annual meeting of the Society for American Archaeology.
One of the main topics of Korean archaeology is understanding of prehistoric subsistence throughout the Neolithic. However, due to the high acidity of sediments that do not favor long-term preservation of organic remains, we still lack critical information related to the subsistence of the prehistoric population of the peninsula. Cooking pots contain well-preserved organic compounds originated from culinary practices. Reconstructing food processing episodes through CSIA (Compound-specific Stable Isotope Analysis) of fatty acid extracted from pottery/sediment matrix can contribute to understand the true nature of the subsistence of prehistoric Korean peninsula.
