Long before the West, the Chinese had invented the plough, gunpowder, the compass, porcelain, the calendar, and even kites. From the emergence of Chinese culture around 5000BC, through the famous dynasties, to the decline and fall of imperial China under the Manchus, ancient China is a time and place of great fascination.
