      Tortoise Pace for the Evolution of Chinese Writing?
      Andrew Lawler

      Writing did not emerge in China until 2 millennia after it appeared in what is
      today southern Iraq, about 5200 years ago. But a team of Chinese and U.S.
      researchers now proposes that writing in China went through a long, slow
      evolution that stretches back an astonishing 8000 years.
