Hwang Yun-sook, "Beautiful tea of korea" (Seoul: Korean traditional food research, 2007) p.54 In the period of the Three Kingdoms (Three Kingdoms of Korea), the traditional Korean medicine was being influenced by other traditional medicines such as Chinese Medicine (Traditional Chinese Medicine). In the Goryeo dynasty with the influence of others like Chinese medicine, more intense investigation of domestic herbs took place, and the result was the publication of numerous books on domestic herbs. Medical theories at this time were based on medicine of Song (Song Dynasty) and Yuan (Yuan Dynasty), but prescriptions were based on the medicine of the Unified Silla period such as the medical text ''First Aid Prescriptions Using Native Ingredients'' or "Hyangyak Gugeupbang'' (향약구급방), which was published in 1245. History The location of Cheongwadae was the site of a royal villa in what was then Hanyang (Seoul), the southern capital of the Goryeo dynasty (918–1392). It was built by King Sukjong (Sukjong of Goryeo) (r. 1095–1105) in 1104. Goryeo's principal capital was at Kaesŏng (Kaesong), and it also maintained a western capital at Pyongyang and an eastern capital at Gyeongju. '''Munhwa Ryoo''' clan of Korea (or spelled '''Ryu''' or '''Rieu''') is one of the great aristocratic houses of Goryeo and Joseon (Joseon Dynasty) dynasty. "Munhwa" is the name of the clan seat (bon-gwan), a township in modern-day Hwanghae province, North Korea. The surname "Ryoo" comes from the character meaning willow tree. Hence, the lineage is also called "willow Ryoo" (버들 류씨). *'''Sultanate of Kerman''' - Arslan Shah I (1101–1142) *'''Korea (Goryeo Kingdom) (Goryeo)''' - Sukjong (Sukjong of Goryeo) (1095–1105) *'''Liao (Liao Dynasty)''' ('''Khitan Empire''') - Emperor Tianzuodi (Emperor Tianzuodi of Liao) (1101–1125) *'''Sultanate of Kerman''' - Arslan Shah I (1101–1142) *'''Korea (Goryeo Kingdom) (Goryeo)''' - Sukjong (Sukjong of Goryeo) (1095–1105) *'''Liao (Liao Dynasty)''' ('''Khitan Empire''') - Emperor Tianzuodi (Emperor Tianzuodi of Liao) (1101–1125) Around the 1st century, the valley is believed to have been inhabited by the Byeonhan confederacy tribes. During the Three Kingdoms period (Three Kingdoms of Korea), the Gaya confederacy controlled the valley, until they were overrun by Silla in 562. These states exploited the river's potential for navigation and commerce, operating a thriving trade in armor and weapons with neighboring countries, including Yamato period Japan. Through the Silla, Goryeo, and Joseon (Joseon Dynasty) periods, the river continued to serve as a major transportation corridor in the Gyeongsang region. It was especially used for transporting fresh seafood inland, such as mackerel, which were salted and dried in order to prevent them from spoiling. The city of Andong was the farthest inland the fish could be brought before going bad, so many people flocked there during the Joseon Dynasty to eat fish. http: www.hansik.org zh restaurant recommendRestaurantView.do?fboardId 1075 thumb upright Painting of Kublai Khan (Image:Liu-Kuan-Tao-Jagd.JPG) on a hunting expedition, by artist Liu Guandao, c. 1280 AD.

Goryeo

'''Goryeo''', also known as '''Koryŏ''' ( It united the Later Three Kingdoms in 936 and ruled most of the Korean peninsula until it was removed by the leader of the Joseon dynasty in 1392. The Goryeo dynasty expanded its borders to present-day Wonsan in the north-east (936–943) and the Amnok River (Yalu River) (993) and finally almost the whole of the Korean peninsula (1374).

Two of this period's most notable products are Goryeo celadon pottery (korean pottery and porcelain) and the ''Tripitaka Koreana'' — the Buddhist scriptures (''Tripitaka'') carved onto roughly 80,000 woodblocks and stored, and still in, Haeinsa. Subjects and officials of the Goryeo dynasty also created the world's first metal-based movable type in 1234; the oldest surviving movable metal type book, the Jikji, was made in 1377.

In 668, Silla conquered Baekje and Goguryeo with alliance of Tang Dynasty, but by the late 9th century it was tottering, its monarchs being unimaginative and pressed by the power of powerful statesmen. Many robbers and outlaws agitated and in 900 Gyeon Hwon revolted from Silla control in the Jeolla region as Hubaekje and next year Gung Ye revolted from the northern regions as Hugoguryeo (Taebong). A son of a regional lord, Wang Geon went into Hugoguryeo as a general.

Hugoguryeo fell when Wang Geon revolted and killed Gung Ye in 918; Silla was overpowered by Goryeo and Hubaekje and surrendered to Goryeo in 935. In 936 Hubaekje surrendered and Goryeo started an unbroken dynasty that ruled Korea for 474 years.

By the 14th century Goryeo had lost much of its power under Yuan Dynasty influences. Although King (Rulers of Korea#Goryeo) Gongmin (Gongmin of Goryeo) managed to free his kingdom from the Mongol influence, the Goryeo general Yi Seonggye (Taejo of Joseon) revolted and overthrew the last king of Goryeo, King Gongyang (Gongyang of Goryeo) in 1392. Gongyang was killed in 1394.
