4th Century: Making Paper in Korea

The secrets of papermaking are moving along the Silk Road from China and into Korea, where the paper is now called Hanji.

From Wikipedia:

Hangul 한지
Hanja 韓紙
Revised Romanization hanji
McCune–Reischauer hanji

Wikipedia has an excellent article on the history of Korean papermaking.

This post is part of an ongoing series on books, miniatures, writing and supports since the year 1. Please consider it a kick-start for your own private timeline and a springboard for further research. See my blog for the rest of the series.
