The Beginning Where it all began. The civilization that modern-day knows as Korea was born at roughly the same time period of other civilizations, circa 4000 B.C. After years of simply wandering, though it is difficult to determine when exactly the final settlement was founded, the nomadic Gojoseon (Or Old Joseon) founded the small village that was dubbed Seoul. It would become the seat of power for this country for centuries to come. Its location was advantageous, though until the city further developed this was not fully realized. Nestled on a narrow peninsula, Seoul was an ideal sea port and canal, allowing sea travel to occur unimpeded without having to travel along the southern tip of the Korean peninsula (though this would still happen anyways in the future, but it made Seoul ideal as a sea port). Seoul was also nestled next to an ample supply of wheat (which still continues to feed the inhabitants of Seoul today), and to the north was an ample supply of stone, indicating a possible area of expansion for the budding country. *** Alright, this is my second (and hopefully more consistent) attempt to start up an AAR. This is simply a placeholder until I can actually start cranking out something more. Stay tuned please!
