Research Infrastructure for the Jungwon Cultural Sphere

Heritage name Research infrastructure for the Jungwon cultural sphere
Category Historic site excavation survey
Survey period 2008 ~


The project to build a research infrastructure for the Jungwon cultural sphere consists of a comprehensive academic investigation aimed at collecting and compiling primary resources and data on important historic sites and artifacts in the Jungwon region.
In 2008, we conducted surveys of nineteen mountain fortresses in Chungcheongbuk-do - i.e., 3D-scanning distinctive walls, making precise measurements, and taking aerial view and professional photo shots—to establish a database on the major cultural properties of the Jungwon region and compile them into a catalog.
We plan to conduct a surface survey every year, extending it to old tombs, temple sites, prehistoric sites, and other artifacts, in order to create a comprehensive database on Jungwon’s cultural heritage. The compiled data concerning the systematic conservation and utilization of these cultural properties will be made available to professionals and members of the public on our website.
