There is still some question as to how exactly stone ladders unearthed from archaeological sites were used. This paper begins with an overview of this issue. The processing marks on the stone ladders is then discussed and combined with digital management to analyze how the stone ladders were used. Statistical analysis is further applied to extrapolate behavior patterns of the people who used the ladders.
The usage angle of stone ladders at the Peinan Site is mainly between 40 to 60 degrees; and the vertical height is about 100 to 130 centimeters, which is approximately the height of a half-story house. Comparing this with the traditional residential building structure types of Taiwanese indigenous people, it is highly possible that some of the prehistoric building structures of the Peinan Site were similar to pit houses. By further combination with stone pillars, masonry circles and other features unearthed, we might get to know more about the settlement pattern of the Peinan Site.
