ABSTRACT

Although the Polished Stone Arrowhead (Maje seokchok) has been one remains with some important features in Neolithic of our country with the Jeulmun pottery, so far, the concrete and comprehensive review of it hasn't been come true. In this study, after organizing recent data from a comprehensive survey and then categorizing by type, I'd like to review by the recording chronologically of each region and the mutual relativity. As a result, it has been confirmed that the Stone Arrowhead (Maje seokchok) was found in the lower classes of the Press down-patterned pottery (Apinmoon earthenware) stage of the eastern coast in the Korean Peninsula, especially focused on the ruins of Osan-ri and Munam-ri at the first time. Since then, it has been considered that the Press down-patterned pottery (Apinmoon earthenware) which was recorded chronologically as the former part of the Neolithic Age has been spreaded primarily into the southern coast of Korean in the process of diffusion. After as connected into the Jeulmun pottery stage of the middle part in Neolithic, while the east coast had a strong feeling of being cut off, these characteristic elements had the most appearance and development when they emerged suddenly in the northwestern coast centered on the remains of Gungsan-ri Oncheon and Jitap-ri Bongsangun Hwanghaedo. If considering the cultural characteristics of pottery, it has been appeared that some elements were combined with one of the South Coast region. Finally, it is determined that the middle part of the Neolithic Age represented as the Jeulmun pottery had been formed in the process of spreading to the south.
