This research discusses the Umpungeng megalith complex, a historical proto-settlement in the highlands of Soppeng Regency, South Sulawesi. The importance of this megalith complex is the authenticity and completeness of its monuments, and still the use of a number of ritual mediums for the spiritual purposes of the community. The method used is the archaeological method as the main method, while textual analysis of ancient manuscripts becomes a secondary method. Similarly, interviews are also conducted to confirm artifactual information and ancient manuscript information. The results showed that Umpungeng is an important toponym of the Kingdom of Soppeng. The structure and pattern of Umpungeng settlements follow a topography whose location is uneven. Megaliths that serve as a cult medium are positioned in the middle while residential areas are scattered far apart, following the topography of the mountains. The contribution of this research is to provide an overview of the pattern of 14th-century settlement in the highlands of South Sulawesi.
