    Abstract

    The last decade has seen a major reassessment of the Neolithic in Island Southeast Asia (ISEA), with many authors proposing alternatives to the conventional model of a Neolithic transition driven by the migration of Austronesian speaking farmers out of Taiwan into ISEA. Here I discuss the archaeological evidence from sites in Timor-Leste, Sulawesi and elsewhere in ISEA in the context of the orthodox model and reevaluate recent reviews of the model in the light of this.
