More evidence has emerged of human sacrifices taking place during Korea's Silla era.
According to the Cultural Heritage Administration, the remains of a woman were found near the west walls of Wolseong Palace in Gyeongju, Gyeongsangbuk-do Province.
This the second such discovery, after the bodies of a man and a woman were discovered in 2017, just centimeters away from this one.
The walls were built between the 4th and 5th centuries, and experts presume the human sacrifices were a ritual for the safe construction of the walls.
