– Baekje is one of ancient kingdoms in Korean history. This kingdom is located in the mountainous mid-western region of the Korean peninsula and lasted about 700 years from B.C. 18 to A.D. 660. The Baekje historic area has eight archaeological sites dating from 475-660 A.D. including the Gongsanseong fortress and royal tombs at Songsan-ri related to the Ungjin capital Gongju; the archaeological site in Gwanbuk-ri and Busosanseong fortress, Jeongnimsa temple site, royal tombs in Neungsan-ri and Naseong city wall related to the Sabi capital Buyeo.
In July, 2015, Baekje historic areas became a World Heritage site. UNESCO World Heritage Committee adopted a statement of the Outstanding Universal Value(OUV) for the Baekje historic areas for contributing to the cultural development in the ancient East Asia. The host, Donggang Middle School, aims to promote the importance and value of the Baekje Historic areas to local people and volunteers from over the world and raising its awareness together with the students of the middle school.
