Ancient China

The oldest written records of Chinese history date from about 1500BC, during the Shang dynasty... People lived in what is now China long before the beginning of written history.

By 10,000 BC, a number of cultures had developed in this area. From two of them - the Yangshao and the Longshan - a distinctly Chinese civilization gradually emerged.
