Objectives
Excavations are being carried out on various archaeological sites in Hong Kong for information on the early human occupation in this area. This study also looks at the relationship of coastal landforms and settlement patterns, the links between Neolithic, Bronze Age and early historical populations in the area, and the possibility of Austronesian origins in the south China region.
