ABSTRACT

This work shed light on the technology and development of harness production and influences between Korea Peninsula and Japan, focusing on the comparisons of the shapes of bits and handle-connected sticks in the entire bit and bridle structure. Also this study includes the technicians of bit and bridle in both countries. As a result of this, it is note to remember that metal handle-connected sticks were not identified in the early stage the Kohun period in Japan but snarling shapes had been reported the most. This fact can also be found from Three Han period in Korea Peninsula. Also Kingi Area has rather less examples while Okayama, Nagano, Gunma and Miyazaki areas produced amounts of handle-connected sticks. It is interesting that those areas (from Okayama to Miyazaki) show less numbers of tombs compared to Kingi Area. Therefore it can be presumed that bits and bridles are not reflecting social and political environment in Japan but rather showing personality or occupation of the deceased.
