The first discovery of celadon vessels brought from China by the Gaya people 1600 years ago


About 1600 years ago, from the tomb of the Gaya people who lived in the southeastern part of the Korean Peninsula, Chinese celadon, the highest quality item in East Asia at the time, came out. It is interpreted as evidence that the Gaya people crossed the West Sea and engaged in international exchange activities with the Southern Chinese, drawing attention from the historical academic community. According to the Cultural Heritage Administration and Haman-gun, Gyeongsangnam-do, Chinese celadon bowls made in the 5th century are the best in Tomb 75 of Malisan Tombs, Haman, the tomb of the ruling powers of Aragaya.
