Description :
The temporal-spatial distribution features of prehistoric cultures since the Holocene in Zhejiang region were comparatively analyzed based on GIS spatial analysis. Results show that the prehistoric cultures expanded gradually in this region before 4000 cal. a BP. with 2 notable expansions : one in the Majiabang-Hemudu cultural period, the other in the Liangzhu cultural period. After 4000 cal. a BP, the distributed area of each prehistoric culture contracted due to dry-cold climate trend and deterioration of coastal marine environment. Therefore, the climatic environment is the dominant factor of prehistoric culture vicissitudes in Zhejiang region, which has exerted great influence on distribution, dissemination, expansion and transmutation of the culture.
