This volume presents two histories of the early Korean kingdom of Paekche (trad. 18 BCE-660 CE). The first is based largely on primary sources, both written and archaeologial. This initial history serves, in part, to introduce the second, an extensively annotated translation of the oldest history of the kingdom, the Paekche Annals.
