Origin Stories

The meaning of “China” and the use of history to create meaning

“China: an artwork whose medium is history”

Locating origins in space

the north China plain, the Yellow River, the “loess” region

A. The story according to the Confucian texts of 500 BC: the “Former Kings”

The culture heroes

The sage-kings and their big ideas

Yao Shun Yu/Yü*

The “Three Dynasties” of Antiquity

Xia/Hsia (2200?-1700? BC)

Shang (c. 1700-1046 BC)

Zhou/Chou (1045-256 BC)

The meaning of “China” according to the texts: universal kingship, linear continuity, and a single origin

B. The story according to late 20th century archaeologists

Traditions of archaeology in China

Homo erectus (Peking Man) 1 million-200,000 years ago

Homo sapiens and the Holocene age (beginning 11,000 years ago)

China’s origins and the “Near East Diffusion” theory

Neolithic cultures

Early Neolithic

the Yangshao/Yang-shao and contemporary cultures (5000 BC)

Map 1

the Longshan/Lung-shan cultural period (3000-2000 BC) and government

Map 2

The meaning of “China” according to the artifacts: multiple origins and competing centers

* When the romanization of Chinese terms in the Pinyin and Wade-Giles systems differs both spellings are given: first Pinyin/then Wade-Giles. (However “Peking” 北京 comes from neither Wade-Giles, which romanizes the city name as "Pei-ching," nor Pinyin, which spells it “Beijing.”)
