Abstract:

Between 2000 B.C. and 221 B.C., many civilizations developed in the area now known as China--and each had its own distinct language, culture and gods. This series unveils remarkable new archaeological discoveries that provide clues about how exactly these civilizations merged into one Chinese culture over the course of several centuries. This program explores how the idea of Zhong-hua (Sinocentrism) was forged in ancient China and finally utilized by the First Emperor of Qin to bind many people under one flag.
