China is one of the world's oldest civilizations with its earliest dynasty
dating back to c. 2100 BC. However, there is evidence of people living there in the
Paleolithic and Neolithic Ages. Along the way, the Chinese have proven their
creativity with many inventions including gunpowder, papermaking, the compass, printing and a unique
zodiac. Of course, China is also famous for the Great Wall. It was started
as early as the 7th century BC, however the more famous parts were built around 200 BC.
