ABSTRACT
The article discusses the history of beads in Korea. Perforated deer toe bones were found at the archaeological site Turuburg Cave which have been dated at an estimated 20,000-years-old. The Neolithic Period, estimated at 4000 to 2000 B. C., is the beginning period for beads appearing in the north with dog and pig teeth and shells cared as pendants to be worn.
