Book of Ancient Maps of Korean Sea Published

The Korea Hydrographic and Oceanographic Administration (KHOA) says it will distribute a book containing some 60 ancient maps of the Korean sea.
The book contains marine charts of the Korean sea produced by Britain, France, Japan, Russia and the United States, as well as the hydrographical chart for Busan Port created by the Korean government in 1951.
The ancient marine charts are considered critical historical documents which show ancient people’s perceptions on the sea and the level of the country’s ocean science and technology.
An official at the administration said that the book containing the history of the Korean sea will be distributed to museums and libraries across the country.
