Prehistoric Age Macao


Macao has numerous archaeological sites. Hac Sá in Coloane is enriched with a wealth of ancient cultural heritage and has given up the most famous prehistoric relics in Macao.

Between 1972 and 2006, archaeologists carried out archaeological excavations in Hac Sá and unearthed skeletons, painted pottery shards, copper coins, buttons, arrows, quartz rings, penannular jade pieces and stone implements such as stone axes and adzes. The remains reveal that the site was inhabited by human beings during the New Stone Age around 4,000 BC, who even established artisan workshops producing crystal bracelets and earrings.

Hac Sá in Coloane - which features hills and tranquil bays - offers excellent living conditions. Residents made a living by fishing and hunting.
