  • overview
  • Sogaya covers the west region of Gyeongsangnam-do such as Sancheong, Jinju, Sacheon and Goseong. Goseong is the central area of Sogaya.   Goseong Songhak-dong Tumuli is located in the plains of Goseong, at the point where Danghangman Port and Goseongman Port meet. Goseong was an important point of sea trade that connected China, Gaya, and Japanese Islands as located in the middle of the south sea on the Korean peninsula. The Chinese and Japanese relics found in Goseong shell mound and Songhak-dong Tumuli support this fact.

    Songhak-dong Tumuli is composed of tombs of the elite class of Sogaya from the 5th century to the middle of the 6th century. It was built on an independent hill in the Goseong plains. Songhak-dong Tumuli shows tradition of mound burial in contrast to tombs in other Gaya tumuli. The main feature of mound burial is making several main burial chambers gradually on big mound.  It was popular in the Japanese Islands and Yeongsangang River basin of Baekje. Goseong Songhak-dong Tumuli adopted the construction technologies though trade with other countries. Songhak-dong Tomb no. 1B adopted the construction technologies and burial customs of stone chamber tomb with horizontal entrance from north kyushu area of Japan. It reflects the mutual ocean trade with Japan during that time.
