Exhibition on Primorye Culture attracted more than 25 thousand viewers in Korea

Residents and guests of South Korean Busan, where the exposition has been open since September 15, show great interest in the exhibition "Culture of Russian Primorye: From Antiquity to the Present" and the exhibits of the Educational and Scientific Museum (UNM) of the FEFU. In a month, she will move to Seoul and will be open to the public in the Korean capital until mid-March 2015.

The exhibition was initiated by a major municipal museum in Busan, which is inferior to the capital's only exposition in Korea. One of the organizers was the staff member of the museum, archaeologist Dr. Kim Yongyong, who for several months worked in Vladivostok on the thesis in the field of archeology based on the materials of the Educational and Scientific Museum of the Far Eastern Federal University. Representatives of the museum and Busan University repeatedly visited the UNM FEFU and highly appreciated the work of its exposition, collections and funds. The continuation of friendly relations was the organization of the exhibition in Korea.

The displayed ancient archaeological objects and ethnographic things of the first Korean settlers in Primorye were provided by the FEFU Educational and Scientific Museum - a total of 138 exhibits. These are bone ornaments (up to 6 thousand years ago), and ceramic figurines (from 3,5 thousand to 2,8 thousand years ago), as well as ceramic dishes restored by employees of the Museum of Archeology and Ethnography of the UNM. The rest of the exposition is exhibits from the museum of the Institute of History, Archeology and Ethnography of the Peoples of the Far East of the Far Eastern Branch of the Russian Academy of Sciences.

The Far Eastern Federal University at the opening of the exhibition in Korea was presented by Deputy Vice-Rector for International Relations Natalya Stupnitskaya and Chief Keeper of the funds of the University Museum of Archeology and Ethnography Larisa Nikitina. Director of the FEFU Educational and Scientific Museum Alexander Popov became a specially invited guest of the scientific symposium on the ancient history of Primorye, timed to coincide with the exhibition. He not only spoke at the seminar with a report "The Ancient Past of Primorye - from 15 to 2 thousand years ago," but at the request of his Korean colleagues, he gave a three-hour lecture at the University of Busan on the Neolithic era in Primorsky Territory. The lecture attracted more than 50 interested listeners - students, teachers, archaeological scientists.

The territories of Primorye and Korea are very close, and our archaeological antiquities are similar. Such exhibitions and events tell about the common history of the East Asia region for our peoples. Without materials collected by scientists on the Korean Peninsula, Primorye residents will not be able to understand their history, and vice versa - our findings are extremely important for colleagues from Korea. It's nice that ordinary citizens are also showing interest in this work, - said Alexander Popov.

Note that the exposition of the relics of Primorye in Busan occupies a separate room with an area of ​​300 sq. meters. According to the Korean Museum, in the first month and a half of its work, the exhibition "Culture of Russian Primorye: From Antiquity to the Present" was attended by over 25 thousand people.
