A collection of historical treasures which date back to the Joseon Dynasty (1392-1910) have been unearthed in Seoul, Korea.

Researchers have uncovered a handful of historical treasures next to the press building, many of which date back several hundred years to the time of the Joseon Dynasty (1392-1910).

This past June, Shin Suk-jeong, the director of the Korea Cultural Properties Investigation & Research Institute Association, carried out an excavation at the site and found many artifacts, including large arrowheads, European cannon parts and other weapons that required gunpowder.
