Umehara Korean Archaeology Image Database 梅原考古資料画像データベース

Umehara Archaeology Image Database 梅原考古資料画像データベース. Also in Japanese.

Developed by the Toyo Bunko, this database provides images of thousands of artifacts excavated by Umehara Sueji 梅原末治 in the Korean Peninsula in the 1920s and 1930s. Materials from today’s North Korea are probably the most important, given the current difficulty of entering North Korea.
