Transcript of Shang Dynasty
The Shang Dynasty took place in China and was considered to be a myth. After archeologists found artefacts, they proved that the Shang Dynasty did exist. They had emperors to rule their country and after they died, the role of the emperor was passed on to their sons or nephews.
How long did the Shang Dynasty last?
The Shang Dynasty lasted from 1600BC - 1046BC. It had 30 emperors at the time. The ruler and founder of the Shang Dynasty was Tang Shang.
The hierachy was the positions that the people who lived in China had when the Shang Dynasty took place. The order was: the ruling family, priests, government workers, warriors, peasant workers and slaves.
The Yellow River
What was the Shang Dynasty?
The Yellow River was near where people lived because they could drink the water, take baths in it and wash their clothes. It was called the The Yellow River because of the sand underneath it and the dust that was swept over it.
The peasants were like slaves because of the way they were treated. The only difference was that the peasants earned food but the slaves didn't receive anything. When they had wars the peasants were forced to fight and were the first to die because they were kept out of the castle walls. Whatever there fathers were, their families had to follow;they had no choice.
