Koryeo (or Goryeo according to the new Romanization system) is one of the dynasties of ancient Korea from which the current name "Korea" originated. This illustrated book embarks on a rare journey into the Koryeo Dynasty (918-1392), a pivotal era in the history of Korea. Major parts dealt with in this book include: "People Living in Gaegyeong (then the capital of Koryeo)," "Life outside the Capital," "Koryeo Society: Values and Views," and "A Contemporary Object for Elegant Living-Celadon." Up until now, aside from some famous artifacts such as celadon, metal type, and the Tripitaka Koreana, people outside Korea have known virtually little about the period. Koryeo was able to become a pluralistic society because it embraced the myriad human and cultural resources of the ancient Three Kingdoms period. This book maintains that the Koryeo period was a watershed for the Korean peninsula, when diverse heritages merged into a single culture that laid the cornerstone for the development of modern Korea. This book is published as Part 7 of "The Virtual Museum of Korean History."
