Kungsan archaeological remains belonging to the Neolithic era were unearthed in Unha-ri, Onchon County, Nampho City of the Democratic People's Republic of Korea.

Found in the remains were five house sites and many relics and they are largely divided into two periods according to the characteristics of cultural arrays.

Three circular house sites belong to the former term of the Neolithic era and the two rectangular house sites to its middle term.

Stove sites are seen in the middle of the house sites.

Various kinds of earthenware were discovered, including jars, pots and bowls.

Besides, there are stone implements including hoe, axe, millstones and plane stone, bone tools such as awl, sickle, knife and needle, and beads.

The Kungsan archaeological remains are typical ones of the Neolithic era of Korea. They serve as precious materials for correctly clarifying the history and culture of that time.
