Kenting Site

Map:Kenting Site
In the 1930s, Japanese scholars discovered the Kenting Archaeological Site during the first official archaeological excavation in the history of Taiwan. Apart from hunting and fishing tools, such as stone spears and fishing net sinkers, they also unearthed agricultural tools, including stone hoes and knives, as well as numerous red corded pottery and jade ornaments. From the various items found at the site, it can be speculated that a centralized village existed at the time, and that the residents had already adopted a farming lifestyle.
