> Korean History in the Eyes of the Dokdo Islands > Eastern end of Korea, Dokdo

An introduction of a place or region typically begins with a description of its location and scenery. The location of a region can be explained based on the latitude and longitude or in relation to the locations of the surrounding regions. On the other hand, scenery can be described by not only the details we can observe with our eyes, but also the characteristics that were shaped by the natural and human environments over time. “Dokdo Island, the Easternmost Territory of Korea” provides information on the history of Korea based on the history of the island as well as its geographical location and natural and human environments.
