Archeological Relics from Japan and Korea
June 19, 2018 - September 2, 2018

The unglazed greyish stoneware ceramics known as Sue ware or sueki are closely associated with Japan’s Kofun period (ca. 3rd –7th century). The technology to produce such pottery was imported into Japan from the Korean peninsula at the beginning of the 5th century. This mini exhibition shows the close relationship between these two cultures by juxtaposing ceramics produced in Korea’s ancient Silla period (668–935) with Japanese sueki. Also on view are ancient roof tiles excavated in Gyeongju, South Korea, as well as archaeological relics from Japan’s Paleolithic age and Jōmon (pre-10,000 BCE–ca. 5th century BCE) through Kamakura (1185–1333) periods, which were excavated in Japan.
