Yellow Emperor


Legend has it that about 2000 b.c one such tribal alliance had a chieftain known as Huang Ti (Yellow Emperor), one of the most powerful leaders in the Yellow River Area; He was their earliest ruler, according to the ancient Chinese Records. This was the period of transition from the Neolithic to Bronze Age, when metal tools began to replace stone implements. Stock-breeding and farming were well established this time; dams and irrigation canals were used to control the waters of the river and to aid cultivation. Other developments these times included the invention of silk culture and weaving, the building of houses with timber, the construction of carriages and boats, and the written language.
