Strongholds of the World – part I online

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.

Enjoy!
