It is the stone coffin, made of a plain rock and pieces of stone on the ground or inside the semi-underground, with the stone lid on it weighing 5 to 6 tons or tens of tons. The lid stone is always exposed to the ground.
Dolmen range in the Liaotung peninsula of China, which was a frontier of the Ancient Korea, and the whole area of Korea except for Tuman River basin northern part of North Hamgyong Province. They are specially concentrated in Pyongyang, the capital of Ancient Korea and the center of ancient culture, and its neighborhood.
