So far, there has been no comprehensive and systematic investigation of the Koguryo mountain cities in North Korea.The New Century the Institute of Archaeology, North Korea Social Science Academy conducted a planned excavation and survey of the Koguryo relics in the country, and conducted a systematic survey of the Koguryo mountain cities throughout North Korea from 2010 to 2015. Through this survey, we not only investigated a new batch of Koguryeo mountain cities, but also corrected the previous misrecords of specific mountain cities, reconfirming whether the disputed Koguryeo mountain city is a Koguryeo mountain city.
As a report on the results of a five-year survey of Koguryeo Mountain City by the Academia of North Korea, this paper will divided the Koguryeo mountain cities along the northern east coast into two parts: Hamgyǒngbuk-do(咸鏡北道), Hamgyungnam-do and Gangwon-do in North Korea (北江 原道) to introduce them.
The first part will introduce the Fortress on Mt Untou (雲頭山城) in the region of Hamgyǒngbuk-do and the Fortress on Mt Baegun (白雲山城), the Fortress on Mt Gayeong (加應山城) in Hamgyungnam-do which played an important role in the defense of Goguryeo in the northeast.
迄今为止朝鲜境内高句丽山城还未进行系统全面的调查。步入新世纪, 北韩社会科学院考 古学研究所对境内高句丽遗存进行了计划性的发掘与调查, 并于2010~2015年集中对北韩 全境高句丽山城开展了系统调查。通过本次调查不仅新调查出一批高句丽山城, 还修正了以 往对特定山城的错误记录, 重新确认了有争议的高句丽山城是否为高句丽山城。 作为北韩学界对境内高句丽山城进行的五年调查成果的报告, 本文拟对北部东海岸一带高 句丽山城分为咸镜南北道和北江原道两部进行分述介绍。 第二部将首先介绍高句丽在东部防御中起重要作用的北江原道城北里山城、武陵里山城、 万景山城、居城、弩器城、鹤城山城等六座山城。
