This catalogue (English version) presents the results of the survey of the British Museum’s Korean Collections conducted intermittently from 2002 to 2016. It is part of the overseas cultural heritage survey project. Of the entire Korean collection at the British Museum, 1,307 objects were surveyed and are published in this catalogue. The 2,680 objects in the Coins and Medals Department were excluded from the survey, but this catalogue’s appendix includes a list provided by the Coins and Medals Department.
This catalogue consists of a main section of selected works and an appendix of a complete list of surveyed objects. The main section contains photographic images and detailed information of 346 objects comprised of 643 pieces. A complete list of surveyed objects is listed in the order of object title, period, material, dimensions, British Museum registration number and provenance.
