Abstract: Korea and the Silk Road
The Korean peninsula was almost the Asian end of the “Silk Road”,
nevertheless exotic objects from the Mediterranean world are found in
Korean burials beginning in the first century B.C. In studying how
these objects came to be deposited in Korean burials, it becomes clear
that objects arrived in Korea by at least three different routes. The
Steppe Route north of the Altai Mountains, the Silk Road through
Xinjinag, and a Sea Route are discussed, along with the objects that
arrived in Korea from as far away as the Mediterranean world.
Please spread the word, and if you happens to be in Portland area,
please drop by.
