유네스코 세계문화유산 화순고인돌유적지
동북아시아 지역이 세계적인 분포권에서 가장 밀집된 곳으로 그 중 우리나라가 그 중심지역이라고 할 수 있다. 우리나라에는 전국적으로 약 30,000여 기에가까운 고인돌이 분포하고 있는 것으로 알려져 있는데 그중 2000년 세계유산으로 등록된 고창·화순·강화 고인돌 유적(Gochang, Hwasun, and Ganghwa Dolmen Sites)은 밀집분포도, 형식의 다양성으로 고인돌의 형성과 발전과정을 규명하는 중요한 유적이며 유럽, 중국, 일본과도 비교할 수 없는 독특한 특색을 가지고 있다. 또한 고인돌은 선사시대 문화상을 파악할 수 있고 나아가 사회구조, 정치체계는 물론 당시인들의 정신세계를 엿볼 수 있다는 점에서 선사시대 연구의 중요한 자료가 되는 보존가치가 높은 유적이다. 화순 고인돌 유적은 전라남도 화순군 도곡면 효산리와 춘양면 대신리 일대의 계곡을 따라 약 10㎞에 걸쳐 500여기의 고인돌이 군집을 이루어 집중분포하고 있으며 최근에 발견되어 보존상태가 좋다. 또한 고인돌의 축조과정을 보여주는 채석장이 발견되어 당시의 석재를 다루는 기술, 축조와 운반방법 등을 확인할 수 있는 유적으로 평가된다.

More About Korea

Korea is one of the oldest continuous civilizations in the world with over five thousand years of history. According to the original creation myth, the world we live in today is the work of the Heavenly Prince Hwanung, whose father was the King of Heaven.The Heavenly Prince asked his father to give him some land to govern, so the Father sent him down to Mount Taebaek. With him the Prince brought the Minister of Clouds, the Earl of Rain and the Chancellor of Wind. They also brought three thousand helpers.Under the shade of a sandalwood tree the Prince founded a holy city called Sinsi, the City of God. He put his Ministers in charge of three hundred and sixty areas of human culture, teaching them to grow crops and to make laws concerning what is good and what is evil.A tiger and a bear living in a nearby cave saw this city and desperately wanted to become human. Every day they came to the sandalwood tree at the center of the city to pray fervently for becoming humans.Hwanung saw their devotion and gave them instructions to remain in the cave and fast for one month, eating nothing but garlic and mugwort. The tiger was too impatient to stand the long and boring days in the cave, so he gave up and left, but Bear maintained the fast. At the end of the month she was transformed into a beautiful woman who became the mother of the Korean people.Her first son was Don-gun, the First King of the Korean people. When Don-Gun passed on the throne to his own son, he became a Mountain God. It is interesting that mountain gods are still worshipped today in Korea.Text by Steve Smith.
