What you are seeing right now are earthenware that were discovered on a relics site of the Silla period in Gyeongsan, Gyeongsangbuk-do Province. These Earthenware that almost resemble facial expressions and wooden tablets containing records of a land survey are presumed to date back to the 6th century. A study is being conducted to find out how they were used at the time.

Smiling... Absent-minded... And angry... These facial expressions represent simple yet complex and subtle human emotions. All three of them are engraved on a single jar. The excavated earthenware pieces are presumed to date back to the 6th century Silla Kingdom. Experts say no such relics have been found before.

[Soundbite] OH SEUNG-YEON(EXCAVATION ORGANIZATION) : "This excavation is so unique that there is every reason to presume that the relics were used at ancestor worship ceremonies."

Wooden tablets measuring 74 centimeters long have also been discovered in the same pit. Judging by the engraved characters meaning "ravine" and "rice paddy," they are presumed to be official documents that were used before collecting land taxes.

[Soundbite] JEON KYUNG-HO(GYEONGJU NATIONAL RESEARCH INSTITUTE OF CULTURAL HERITAGE) : "The tablets were likely used to grasp land information. This important data points to the possibility that in the 6th century Silla's administrative power included Gyeongsan's neighboring regions as well."

Historians now want to find out the original purpose of the excavation site, as several rare relics were found here at once. The Cultural Heritage Administration plans to find out what the relics were used for and continue excavations at nearby sites. The discovered relics could provide clues to what life was like during the Silla period 1500 years ago.
