As part of our ongoing series of historical video-maps we present: ‘The History of China Every Year.’ Running from 1600 BC until 2017 AD, the following video shows the geographic history of the various civilizations and dynasties that have comprised the area now known as China over the last 3,617 years. Far from the stable monolithic image of modern China, the history of China is one of numerous competing states and changing borders, punctuated by occasional periods of stability such as the Yuan and Qing dynasties.
