EFFECTS OF INFLUENCES ON KOREA <ul><li>Korea modeled its central government after China, even using the Confucian civil service examination to determine work and status. </li></ul><ul><li>Although the public was eligible to take the exam, the best positions were usually given away to the sons of noble men. This resulted in Korea being divided between an aristocracy and the remaining population (military, slaves and commoners) </li></ul><ul><li>This wasn’t the only issue, for in 1231 the Mongols attacked Korea and demanded a tribute that included 20,000 horses, clothing for the military and children and artisans who were to be taken away as slaves </li></ul><ul><li>After the Mongol rule which lasted until the 1350’s, heavy taxation of the wealthy landlords resulted in revolts. These revolts continued until a group of scholars and military leaders overthrew the Koryu Dynasty in 1392. They established a new dynasty called the Choson which ruled for the next five centuries. </li></ul>57 B.C. – A.D 935 918 – 1392* 1392 -1910 Silla Dynasty Koryu Dynasty Choson Dynasty 1231-1350 1270 Goryeo signs a Mongol Invasion peace treaty with the Mongols JM 4

A national effort began to re-create these wooden blocks, and in present day over 81,000 wooden blocks remain. </li></ul>JM 4
