The first session of our lecture series “Strongholds of the World” is now online!
The webinar series Strongholds of the World will present non-European fortresses and fortified towns from around the world.
This series is a cooperation between Aarhus University research programme “Materials, Culture and Heritage” and the Marburg Working Group for European Castle Research.
Our member Dr. Doo-Won Cho is speaking about the Korean fortress of Namhansanseong.
Namhansanseong is a fortified town built since the 12th century on several hills close to Seoul that has been used as a stronghold until the 20th century. About 30 min presentation is followed by a discussion.
