Introduction to life of China after European contact!

In 1790 the Chinese Emperor at that time put bans on all foreign merchants from trading in all Chinese exports except Canton. Then continuing onto 1793 Britain producing drug supply in India then selling that produce to China. Following onto 1796 China banned the imports of the drug supply coming into the country.

After that between 1839-1842 there was the first opium war between China and Britain. But then unfortunately for the Chinese had a humiliating lost to the British and were forced to hand over the control of Hong Kong to the British.

DAILY POST!!

Wow! What a fun time I had researching China before European contact. I found out so many new and cool things that I had no idea of before like: how I highlighted the key features of China’s economy and other stuff that excited me!

But I hope that I did the most important thing by helping you learn more about ancient China.

So if you like leave any comment on my blog because ill love to hear about what you say thank you!

Ciao Awesome Bloggers!!

Now I am up to the second part of my year 9 history assignment.

This second section will consist of me talking about Chinese life after European contact. But for me to fill in the gaps of this question I will need to break it up into six questions that I will then later on in my future blog posts answer, and those questions are:

  1. Outline the nature of the contact between China and European powers.
  2. Assess the significance of a key event involving China and a European power, using sources to identify different perspectives of the event.
  3. Explain how China was changed by its contact with Europeans.
  4. Identify features of Chinese society that were unaffected by contact with Europeans.
  5. Discuss the positive and negative consequences of contact between China and European powers during this period.
  6. Using a range of sources, compare Chinese society to other nations around 1900.

After I have answered these questions I will hope that I have helped you get a better and more knowledgeable understanding of life for the Chinese people after the European development came to china.

Thank you guys again for reading my latest blog!

Hey Guys!!!!

Hey to all you awesome who are about to read this new blog that I am going to put up about China before European contact. Just on a recap of what I’m talking about in this blog is my year 9 history assignment and we are talking about China. So the first part of this assignment is talking about China before European contact and the second part is talking about China after European contact.

I am starting of with the first part of this assignment which is talking about China before European contact, and I have done this by breaking it up in 5 different questions.

These are the questions which have been answered :

  1. Identify key physical features and the geographic extent of China

The Chinese Empire in the 18th and 19th century included particular territories that know belong to Russia, Japan, Kyrgyzstan and Kazakhstan. These Chinese territories contained fertile farmland and rich-river systems especially the Yellow, Yangtze Rivers and their turbines.

  1. Describe the structure of Chinese society and the role of its leaders

The most significant fact in the Chinese society of the Qing social history was the population growth. Increasing population then led to the Chinese population to more than doubling in the amount of people who kept coming through. People in this society were always constantly on the move. The Qing dynasty also known as Empire of the great Qing was the last imperial dynasty. The Qing multi-cultural empire lasted almost three centuries and formed the territorial base for the modern Chinese state.

  1. Outline key features of the Chinese economy

In the Han dynasty china’s population was increasing rapidly which meant increasing urbanization, unprecedented growth of industry, trade and government experimentation with nationalism In this era the levels of minting and circulation of coin currency grew largely and significantly, forming the foundation of a secure, stable monetary system.

  1. Describe China’s main religious beliefs and cultural features

China has been a very multicultural country over the centuries, but according to a latest survey, about 85% of Chinese people have religious beliefs or had some religious practices and only 15% of them are real atheists. Thus then makes the culture more tolerant to others.

  1. Discuss the lives and work of men, women and children

Well let’s start off with the women of China. The lives of women of China significantly changed throughout the ages in the late Qing dynasty. The Chinese woman were treated much better with respect than the other woman at that era, as well as woman throughout China’s history. These are some of the rights that woman had during the Qing Dynasty:

  • Woman’s rights improved in the Qing dynasty.
  • Woman were allowed to fight shoulder to shoulder with China’s men.
  • Woman were allowed to participate in a number of new activities like- Horseback Riding and Archery.
  • Then woman were starting to get paid for their works at their farms and in other industries.

Men generally worked on the farms and usually grew crops as well as spinning or weaving cotton or making handcrafts to sell at markets. Farmers used farming tools and are still used today, tools used include ploughs, weavers and porcelain makers.

During the time, children were required to work long hours in the farms. Children tended to livestock and took work in planting and harvesting crops, boys and girls generally had different styles of schooling.
Girls were not formally educated apart from in buddhist temples which taught basic reading and writing. Girls would learn household tasks like cooking and weaving cloth.
Boys schools were established in China. Schooling was not compulsory but families could pay the school tuition so their sons could sit the government examination.
