    Well, terracota is really secondary. This documentary tried to explain how the Qin kingdom unify the whole of China.

    Chris, Three Kingdom Period is at the end of the Eastern Han Dynasty. You are jumping way ahead of time.

    What makes u guys suddenly into these history?:confused:Just because of the game of romance of 3 kingdoms?:confused::D

    I'd agree with u.I'm also kind of proud for qin shi huang.He was a tyrant,but also by his control,he unify china..u know hard it is to unify such a big country as china now.The other one that i'm proud of,is genghis khan.By his troops n horses,he has gone through half of the world,n conquer every kingdoms.The only asian ruler that has ever been conquered half of the world,except for the japanese.Have u guys watched his movie?:)

    Why not visit the city of Xian, the ancient capital of so many dynasties and the home and tomb of the first emperor of China? Here in this city you will be walking in a living musuem of Chinese civilization.

    i used to really suck at history at school. all the history teacher hated me as i am always the one who come last.

    but yet, i love reading history for fun, just not memorizing pages and pages of stuff for the exam.

    thanks Pete for posting the links, i am enjoying the videos. :)
