Bangudae Petroglyphs on the Valley of Daegokcheon


Located on flat vertical rock faces of 8m wide and 5m high steep cliffs on the riverside of the Daegokcheon stream, a branch of the Taehwa River, the Bangudae Petroglyphsbe have been flooded for several months of every year due to the Sayeon Dam built from 1962 to 1965 on the downstream of the Daegokcheon stream. 

This periodic flooding raises concerns of erosion and water damage of the rock-art motifs, which are considered to be masterpieces of prehistoric art and an invaluable source of prehistoric information.
