Korea Looks at Repatriation Issues

From The Korea Herald: "In November the French and the Japanese governments announced they would return the Joseon-period royal books on court rites and ceremonies that had been taken by force from Korea in the late 19th and early 20th centuries.

The announcements mark the end of years of negotiations between governments and relentless efforts by activists to have the priceless artifacts repatriated.

To mark this significant milestone, The Korea Herald
[has presented] a four-part series on the return of “Uigwe,” the royal books on rites and ceremonies". The four parts are not interlinked, so here is a list of them.

1. Kim Yoon-mi, A step toward restoring Korea’s lost legacy The Korea Herald, 6th December 2010.

2. Kim Yoon-mi, The long journey: repatriating ‘Uigwe’, The Korea Herald, 7th December 2010.

3. Park Min-young, Home countries of relics join forces The Korea Herald, 8th December 2010.

4. Claire Lee, Artifacts to come home ― but to where? The Korea Herald, 9th December 2010.
