Inter-Korean excavation project aims at common awareness of history

Exceptionally long, large-scale project near Kaesong Industrial Complex continues excavations started in 2007

An inter-Korean excavation project just over the Northern side of the border is part of efforts to build a common awareness of history critical for future unification, a staff member involved told NK News.

"This project aims at making the two Koreas' historical awareness closer,” said Shin Joon-young, secretary general at the Council of South and North Korean Historians. “It would not be a complete unification if both sides cannot share common awareness regarding same history."
