Human lives during the East Asian past were shaped by complex population movements and contact among a variety of human groups. An array of subsistence strategies, not all of which were pursued in other parts of the world, resulted in somewhat unusual interactions between human communities and their local environments. To situate the other chapters presented in this volume within their specific environmental settings and archaeological contexts, this chapter reviews a wide range of sources on the peopling of East Asia and the development of indigenous subsistence practices in that part of the world.
