China has about 5,000 years of continuous history, but early 'records'
¦ are of a mythological and legendary nature. The Xia Dynasty,
documented in early Chinese histories as the first Chinese dynasty, dates
back to 2,200BC. During the period of about 4,000 years, more than ten
dynasties were established, including the Shang (1700-1100BC), Zhou (1100-256BC),
Qin (221-206BC), Han (206BC-220AD), Jin (265-420AD), Sui (581-618AD),
Tang (618-907AD), Song (960-1279AD),Yuan (1206-1368AD), Ming (1368-1644AD),
and Qing (1616-1911AD).
