Dear colleagues,
Would anyone happen to be aware of diplomatic or religious contacts or exchanges between the Ashokan empire and the Gojoseon kingdom, specifically, to what extent, if any, such contacts or exchanges existed, and their nature?  Or know of a particular paper or text that might describe or touch on such contacts?
I would imagine that King Ashoka, or at least his foreign and trade ministers, would have been well aware of Gojoseon, and it was Ashokan policy to spread Buddhim throughout the known world.
