Before China developed the ability to write down their history, stories were passed down orally from one generation to the next. The story of the Xia Dynasty is such a case. For decades historians have believed that the Xia Dynasty was just legend. Then, in 1959, evidence was found that showed that this dynasty may not have just been legend, but may have really existed. The truth about whether or not the Xia Dynasty really existed is still being debated.
The Xia family would have ruled China from around 2100 B.C. until around 1800 B.C. They are believed to have been Aryans who migrated into the area, and who were able to conquer the local peoples using their superior weaponry and technology.
Be able to be alone. Lose not the advantage of solitude.
