NRICH held its “2020 Asian Archeology” academic symposium at the Daejeon Convention Center on November 24, 2020.
Since 2000, the Research Division of Archaeology has been engaged in joint excavations with archaeological research institutes in Russia, Mongolia, and other nations in Central Asia. It also runs a consultative body with 16 national and public institutions, universities and corporations in Korea that are conducting joint international studies. “Asian Archeology” symposiums have been held every year since 2017 to share what research has uncovered.
The 2020 symposium featured thematic presentations on research findings related to stone-pile tombs in Eurasia, as well as joint excavations conducted at 9 sites in 6 countries during 2019, including the Balhae Fortress in Primorsky Krai, Russia; the ruins of Xiongnu City in Mongolia; and jar coffins in Vietnam.
