This volume introduces Tung Chung from a simple agricultural life in 1992 to the much varied lifestyle of the New Town and the new Chek Lap Kok airport that has changed the landscape, power relations, and social values in the community. Starting with an analysis of population change and Tung Chung's historical role in maritime defence, this book presents views of the various facets of community life, including political organization, family, religion, and gender. This book fills an important niche in the community studies of Hong Kong's outlying islands.
This book is complied to complement the "Archaeological Discoveries in Sha Ha, Sai Kung" exhibition. The book reveals major achievements of the archaeological discoveries, displaying over 100 unearthed artifacts, and presents relevant research findings.
