Researchers Find Ancient Couple in Single Grave
The remains of two people were discovered in a grave from the Neolithic age in the Yeosoo area of South Cheolla Province. It is the first time that bones from two people have been unearthed from the same Neolithic grave. Gwangju National Museum chief Cho Hyun-jong who led the excavation of the shell mound grave said that the taller of the two skeletons, at 158 cm, had a shell bracelet on the right arm and belonged to a woman. The gender of the other person who was 165 cm has not yet been determined.
The museum said that they are among the oldest human remains discovered on the Korean Peninsula and that their condition is good. Earthenware found near the grave helped the researchers date the remains. The researchers say the two were buried at the same time, but they haven't yet learned how they died.
Wasn't there a grave discovered in Korea that had some artifacts of Imperial Japaneses House indicating that the Japanese Royal Family might have been Korean?

Boy, that's a subject some people won't want to delve into very deeply! I tell my hubby (who is 1/4 Japanese) about Korean/Japanese connections in their early history, and he, who is not very Japanese at all in his culture (identifying with his Mom's South Carolina family roots mostly) doesn't even want to begin to hear it. It gets even worse for people who really care.....LOL...
I know how he feels. Most of my relatives are 1/5th Scotch!
Japanese of today came from Korea, likely from Gorguyeo and Baeckhe Kingdom because the language spoken in those kingdoms suggest it was different from Korean, but related.
