講題:
Prehistoric Taiwan: A Possible Homeland of the Austronesian-Speaking Peoples

摘要:
This lecture will give a brief introduction to the prehistory of Taiwan. The prehistory of Taiwan is significant because of not only its complexity and diversity but also its important role relevant to the human history of Southeast Asia and Oceania. The island of Taiwan has long been recognized as an area perhaps involved in the transmission of the Austronesian peoples and languages from East Asia into the Pacific. Most of the archaeological, linguistic and genetic evidence tend to support the hypothesis that Taiwan was the area from where the Austronesian speaking people originated and spread. Therefore, all Austronesian speaking islanders in the Pacific are most probably descendents of the Austronesians who came South from Taiwan during the prehistoric period.
