The influence of Holocene environmental change on human activities in the Daegu Basi, Korea, during prehistoric and ancient times

Pages 99-109


The strong influence of nature on human life during ancient times requires that people must have chosen their habitats based on the limits of their technology, especially of farming technology, and an understanding of natural conditions. To verify this assumption, the correlation between natural environment and habitat placement in the Daegu basin in Korea over the recent Holocene has been investigated. In this paper , we attempt to correlate various changes in the natural environment of the Daegu basin with the location of bu r.r I sites, cultivated fields, and residenti al areas during the Bronze Age, toe Iron Age, and the proto-Three Kingdoms Age. We also comp ared the changes in location and extent of inhabited areas to the development of tools, soil characteristics , and to the climatic changes based on the sea level changes durin g the Holocene. We conclude that people probably did limit their habitats according to their und erstanding of their environment and their technology.
