Product Description

The Ancient Chinese Civilization, was one of the first 4 early civilizations to develop and thrive. The mountains and deserts have played an important role in Asian history since they created natural barriers to outsiders. East Asia is home to long rivers, high plateaus, dry deserts, and rugged mountains. Early civilization developed around the Yellow River.

For thousands of years, East Asian people were isolated from the rest of the world—this allowed them to develop their culture in a very unique way. The powerful families that controlled land became leaders of family-controlled governments called dynasties. Chinese history from ancient times until about 100 years ago is divided by different ancient dynasties.

The Xia Dynasty (2000 BCE-1600 BCE)
The Shang Dynasty (1600 BCE-1046 BCE)
The Zhou Dynasty (1046 BCE-256 BCE)
The Qin Dynasty (221 BCE-206 BCE)
The Han Dynasty (206 BCE-220 CE)

China is unique because they have continued the same culture since ancient times. There are very few examples of architecture from Ancient China or even Imperial China. China primarily used wood as its main building material similar to Mesopotamia, very few ancient structures exist today.
