Using an easy to follow progressive timeline from early beginning to more modern day, students will follow the emerging development and ultimate sophistication of this most notable civilization. Broken down into sub-chapters of information, each program covers the most important topics and concepts associated with this unique culture and history as they passed through time. The history of China dates back some 3,300 years. Distinct with its own art, music, literature, philosophy, science and technology China offers a cultural portrait equal to the strong creative will of its people. From clans and tribes of nomadic wanderers, China has blended its ancient heritage into the sophistication of a modern-day society. It s language consists of 60,000 symbols; its art is formed from the natural beauty of porcelain, bronze and jade; its philosophy embraces the poetic wisdom and peaceful teachings of Confucius; and its enduring architecture presents an array of pagodas, temples, and a fortress of imperial cities.
