  • overview
  • Haman Marisan Tumuli is the tombs of the kings and aristocrats of Aragaya that have flourished the Haman area. Marisan Tumuli is composed on the hills of 40~70m to the center of the Haman basin. The whole length is around 2km. The construction of the tombs started from the later period of BC to the mid-6th century. The position of the tumuli and the construction skill are passed on to the nearby Gaya region and also influences the regions.

    Investigation on the Tumuli started from 1914 during the Japanese colonial era. Around 200 tombs were investigated through scientific archaeological excavation investigation. Large mounded tombs of hierarchy were constructed in order from the main ridge and branch ridges, and small and medium mounded tombs were constructed on surrounding hill. The wooden coffin tombs constructed in the 1st ~ 2nd century were located at the northern part of the tumuli. The wooden outer-coffin tombs constructed in the 4th ~ 5th century were distributed at the northern part of the hill. For some reason, there is a gap(no tomb construction) during the 3rd century. The stone-lined tomb with vertical entrance that were constructed from the early 5th century were expanded to all over the hills. The process of composing the Tumuli from the north of the hill to the south took a long time but maintains principle. The size of the tumuli, position, and the quality of the relics reflect the social status order of the time of Aragaya society.
