Archaeologists have found traces of a cooking-only building from the 6th century during the Ara Gaya period,  equipped with furnace, floor tunnels and chimney facilities, in what is believed to be the site of Ara Gaya's royal palace located in Haman-gun, Gyeongsangnam-do.

Excavating the royal palace site since 2018, the Gaya National Research Institute of Cultural Heritage announced on the 10th that it has discovered traces of kitchen made by cutting down sloping rocks.  

11m long, 5m wide, and 80cm deep, the kitchen site hase a wall 8m long, 3.5m wide, and 15cm high on the cut surface of the rock, with a furnace,  floor tunnel called gudeul, and a chimney lined up inside.

The institute added that there is a high possibility that the outer walls are separately equipped as wooden column holes with regular intervals are identified around the building site.

According to a survey, the inside floor of the building site was mowed 1~2cm thick and heated to make it firm. 

An official from the institute said, "The exact size and shape of the furnace exist only at the lower end, so we cannot grasp the exact size and shape." 


Gudeul built flat stones with a maximum length of about 1m and a height of about 50cm, and applied gray clay to the outside to prevent smoke from leaking out. However, the exact structure was not confirmed because there was no upper part left.

Near the chimney, a stone with a circular hole has been found. The researchers estimates that the water needed for cooking was stored. 

 

Ara Gaya's Presumed Royal Palace  



The relics include a cylindrical pottery stand, which is believed to be a relic of the Gaya Dynasty in the 6th century, and a reddish-brown cooking earthenware. 

The typical characteristics of Gaya pottery, such as wave-patterned decorations and round holes, were observed in the cylindrical stand. In addition, curved jade and bird-shaped holes, known as Ara Gaya earthenware properties, dotted decorations characterized by soya earthenware, and a pair of square holes were also identified. 

 

Ara Gaya, also known as Ana Gaya, was a kingdom situated around what is now the town of Haman in South Korea's South Gyeongsang Province, from 42 B.C. to A.D. 559.
