With a more than 5,000 years’ history (4,000 years in written record), China is a country boasting profound culture in early time. The glorious ancient Chinese history records countless significant events and intelligent figures. With a detailed Chinese history timeline, some influential stories are picked out for getting closer to the past of this oriental large country.

China is one of the few existing countries that also flourished economically and culturally in the earliest stages of world civilization. Indeed, despite the political and social upheavals that frequently have ravaged the country, China is unique among nations in its longevity and resilience as a discrete political and cultural unit.

From the earliest Yuanmou human and legend Xia Dynasty to the present powerful oriental country, the rise and down in the Chinese history is more like a masterpiece wrote by the oriental civilization.
