Professor Sarah Milledge Nelson of the department of anthropology, University of Denver, gives an illustrated lecture titled "The Gold Crowns of Silla (Korea) and the Tomb of a Queen." Her subject is the tomb of a woman wearing a pure gold crown and a golden belt of leadership. These symbols make it clear that she was a ruling queen, but she does not appear in the official list of rulers, although some queens do. How can archaeology solve this mystery, without any writing in the tomb?
This lecture is cosponsored with the Archaeological Institute of America, Rochester Society. It is free to MAG and AIA members; included in admission for all others.
