A rampart style of the Three Kingdoms of Korea and mountain fortress with historical value, revealing many metal artifacts



Daemosanseong fortress in Yangju was located in an important central traffic point between the Imjin River and Han River. The year of construction is estimated as the early 700s during the Three Kingdoms Period. Some parts are crumbling, but all the amenities maintain the appearance of the time of construction, so it has important academic value to allow study of the characteristics, construction technologies and conditions of its location.



It has had seven times of excavation investigation from 1980 to 1998, so, earthenware, a piece of roof tile and metal were excavated. In particular, the metals are of outstanding quality and quantity among the relics of the United Silla, and it indicates that the status of Daemosanseong fortress was very high at that time. Stone masons of the Three Kingdoms Period climbed up Daemosan Mountain repeatedly to build this castle. Even though they are gone, their hard work remains as a valuable part of history.
