The third-largest country in the world.
Well developed major super power.

Written history goes back over 5000 years.

Some of the major points of interest are the culture, The Great Wall of China and the Peking Man's Caves.
The Chinese used printing, gun powder, compass, porcelain, paper, silkworm farming and silk manufacturing before they were invented or used in Europe.

Capital is Beijing.

China, big, beautiful China.

Could spend years there, still wouldn't see half of it.

Hui Chin, Endre and I visited China in 1997 and it was a real cultural shock for us.

Truck loads of history, some five thousand years in fact, give or take a few hundred years.

We've enjoyed our stay very much.

Zhoukoudian - 'Peking Man' Caves

Peking Man caves, Zhoukoudian, the site of the primeval Chinese, is 48 km south-west of Beijing and there is also a fossil exhibition hall.
On display are models, stone tools, and the skeletons of prehistoric creatures.
Early this century, villagers around Zhoukoudian found fossils in a local quarry and took them to the local medicine shop for sale as 'dragon bones'.
Very soon archaeologists - foreign and Chinese - poured in for a dig.
Many years later, a molar than a complete skullcap, Sinanthropus Pekinensis was found in 1929.
The cap was said to be half a million years old, it was never established scientifically.
It was packed away with other dig results during the Japanese invasion in 1937 and the whole lot disappeared for ever.
Many other fragments were found since but nothing really comparable.

Zhoukoudian is a very interesting place.
Is that where we all came from???
