Throughout Hong Kong's long history of cultural development, local communities exhibited varying degrees of cultural connections and interactions with groups in the wider Lingnan region. At this exciting conference a group of twenty mainland, Hong Kong, Macau and overseas scholars explore a diverse range of topics in Lingnan archaeology. I'm very honoured to have been invited to present a paper and will discuss my recent research into mortuary behaviour at the unique late Tang cemetery at San Tau, North Lantau. The project pioneered the local use of intra-site ground penetrating radar (GPR) with excavation 'ground-truthing' to reveal what I believe is a military-civilian cemetery associated with the vibrant Tang maritime trade through Guangzhou.
