The Story of the Peinan Site

The discovery of the Peinan Site can be traced back 100 years, but large-scale excavation did not take place until 1980. Due to the construction of the New Taitung East Line Railway Station, a large number of prehistoric sites and remains were unearthed. Then excavation was carried out by a student team led by Professors Wen-hsun Sung and Chao-mei Lien of National Taiwan University. A total of 13 excavations were carried out over nine years. Among the remains excavated, were the slate coffins highly concentrated in one area, all arranged in the same position. As for the funerary goods excavated, these were stone and jade objects for grinding flour, and various types of pottery. According to the experts, a structured social group already existed at that period.
