Tallest skeleton from Three Kingdoms period discovered in Gyeongju Updated: 2021-07-15 17:02:58 KST

Archaeologists have found the tallest skeleton discovered so far from the Three Kingdoms period.
The Korea Cultural Heritage Foundation says twelve human skeletons were found in twenty-four tombs in Gyeongju, Gyeongsangbuk-do Province.
The remains are from the Three Kingdoms era between the 5th and 6th centuries.
Among them was a well-preserved male skeleton with a height of 180-centimeters, which is much higher than the average height of 165 centimeters for males from that era.
The man had a spinal deformity, and experts say it will be possible to estimate what kind of work he did through further research.
