ABSTRACT

Subtle inquiries regarding time setting of early Neolithic Period in Korea are still underpinned in the academic world. Given the results found from Gosanri sites in Jeju Island, there are certain progresses of this research area while showing disparate tendency and absolute age differences compared to early stage of North-East Asia. Most of Korean researches on this certain period seem to focus on the systems and formalities which drains this kind of difference. Therefore, this work mainly sheds light on the everyday life, rehabilitation of early Neolithic Period. It is also certain that most of early stage sites are limited to Jeju Island, which means rather shortages of Neolithic sites in the peninsula. Natural resources of flora and fauna fluid that is crucial evidence of identifying rehabilitation of prehistoric times are hardly discovered which makes the relevant researches fragmentarily achieved. Based on the research about the location of sites and used implements, it seems that early people actively engaged with gathering and hunting while no certain evidence of fishing. Slightly later, both Jeju Island and Southern areas showed fishing activities and especially heavily engaged in the Southern areas. Earthenware bowl with raised pattern that is typical southern pottery of this period is also found in Jeju Island which proved rigorous interaction between two locals. Stone implements and resources, in the meantime, from peninsula of early stage Neolithic period are uncovered from Jeju Island which are clear proof of both areas. However, it seems there is no fishing evidence and no fishing sites in the Southern area which means inquiries are not yet answered enough. More substantial clue would be appeared in the near future.
