Traces of Joseon Dynasty administrative street excavated at Gwanghwamun Square Updated: 2021-05-11 16:20:18 KST

An archeological excavation in downtown Seoul has uncovered traces of a street made in the Joseon Dynasty where six major government offices were located hundreds of years ago.
This administrative street, found at Gwanghwamun Square, where a redesigning project is underway, had offices for finance, law, defense and other government functions.
The city of Seoul plans to finish the excavation by the end of this month and then decide how they're going to preserve the site.
The city has been excavating this area since 2019, looking for cultural assets.
From May 21st to the 29th, the site will be open to the public twice a day, but there's a capacity limit, so visitors should apply for the tour at the Gwanghwamun Square website.
