This research discusses the transition of the utilization of the landscape of the Proto-historic Soppeng Kingdom. In this discussion, Sewo as a megalith site is the focus because from this site the buffer villages of the 14th century Soppeng kingdom originated. The methods used are archaeological, ethnographic, and historical methods. The results showed that there was a change in landscape utilization patterns from hilly areas to sloping lowland areas. The first phase of settlement was a settlement on a hilly area, took place in the 12th/13th century, then turned into a lowland settlement suitable for rice fields. The change in landscape usage patterns was caused by the decision to turn agricultural livelihoods into systematic rice farming livelihoods. The decision to manage systematic rice farming in the 14th century was consequent to the rice surplus which then triggered the unification of farmers’ villages into the Kingdom of Soppeng. This article will add to our understanding of the dynamics of proto-historical culture in Indonesia, especially on landscape utilization patterns.
