  • overview
  • Hapcheon Okjeon Tumuli is located in the Hwanggang Riverside, a tributary of the Nakdonggang River. It is around 7km in distance to the east, where the Hwanggang River and Nakdonggang River meet. Okjeon Tumuli is composed in the top part of the hill and surroundings of the hill in front of the big river. There is an earthen rampart which is assumed to the palace of Dara-guk to the south of the tumuli and there are small and medium tombs that cover up the surrounded area.

    Around 122 tombs were investigated through 7 excavation from 1985 in Okjeon Tumuli. Around 3,000 relics were found. Recently, the 2nd~3rd century wooden coffin tombs were investigated at the lower part of the hill. As a result of the survey, Okjeon Tumuli is a heritage which show the true nature of Dara-guk, a nation of Gaya.

    Okjeon Tumuli were constructed from the 2nd to the 6th century. Several burial styles were adopted such as wooden coffin tombs, wooden outer-coffin tombs, stone-lined tomb with vertical entrance, stone chamber tomb with corridor, and stone chamber tomb with horizontal entrance. It is one of main features of Okjeon Tumuli that the construction of wooden coffin tombs lasted until the end of 5th century.

    The rectangular wooden outer-coffin tombs that were constructed during the 5th century is deeply related to the Geumgwangaya of Gimhae. The vertical entrance stone-lined tomb which separated main and accessory compartment adopted in the late 5th century. It shows the cultural influence of Silla on the tomb construction technology of Gaya. Tomb no. M10 constructed in the early 6th century was stone chamber tomb with corridor was influenced by Silla. Whereas tomb no. M11 is the stone chamber tomb with horizontal entrance introduced from Baekje. The rapid change of the tomb types are a result of the international relations of Gaya, Baekje, and Silla.

    Along with the change of the tombs types, Yongbongmun(dragon and phoenix decoration) Sword with Ring Pommel and Roman Glass from the Silk Road shows that the Okjeon Tumuli was the hub of international exchange.
