Archaeology Gallery

This gallery illustrates outstanding archaeological objects from the Paleolithic era to Unified Silla period (AD 936) at the Korean peninsula: pottery, jewelry, armors, tools and weapons etc. It is interesting to note that the collection is uniquely important for the museum history because so much of it comes from documented excavations undertaken by the museum staffs from 1970s to 2000s. In so doing, the large topological series of objects above provide a unique insight into how people have lived and died near the Nakdong River.

In fact, most housing style in the Korean peninsula took two particular forms: tile-roofed house for the upper class and thatched-roofed house for the public. Roof-tiles were really useful to prevent the timbers of wooden house from being decayed as well as to illustrate the particular design to defeat the evil. Bricks were mainly used to construct the tombs or houses, but its style is not like Western bricks.
