Chronology of Chinese History and Culture - 5000 B.C. to A.D. 2004
- Hi, just uploaded my "Chronology of Chinese History and Culture"
which I'm working on but is still sorely incomplete. The gaps in
the chronology will be filled as I go along as there is still much
for me to write and summarize. The main blocks which are still
incomplete are the sections from 5000 BC to 1600 BC, AD 589 to AD
1500 and the more recent history from 1949 onwards. I've also yet
to fill in the whole column on Major Social Advances too.
Hopefully the chronology can help bring all the disjointed
components you read about together and give you a sense of the
continuity that is part of the Chinese heritage. I will be linking
most of the other information in the group into the chronology as
well as to develop a whole new portion on Famous (significant)
battles which were turning points in Chinese history. The other
planned section would be to collect and incorporate the maps of what
was considered China through the ages, to see the transitions of
dynasties and the ebb and flow of the borders.
Later I also hope to start adding more columns, maybe one on the
development of writing styles or one on population size etc.
Please do take a look and feel free to comment, add or correct
anything you see fit.
