Since 1949, he has been settled in Hong Kong and has made significant contributions to the study of ancient Hong Kong history, making him a representative of “Hong Kong archaeologists.” Recent archaeological discoveries have revealed that Hong Kong has a history of 7,000 years, rather than just being a “small fishing village” as previously believed. This lecture will introduce the relationship between Professor Jao Tsung-i and the development of Hong Kong archaeology and illustrate the 7,000-year history of Hong Kong’s ancient culture.
