Ancient China- Achievements
By- Roger Alvarado
bronze objects included sculptures, daggers, vases, cups, and urn, which were large ceremonial containers. The Shang used bronze urns to prepare and serve food for ceremonies to honor their ancestors. They could not have made urn in order to honor their ancestors without bronze.
Silk is a thin,but strong fiber that silkworms produce when they are making their cocoon. I always thought it was just a part to make fabric. until i read the story about how silk came to be. Turns out the wife of the yellow emperor was the one who found silk. The story was that she was having a cup of tea and a cocoon fell in the tea , she unwrapped it thats how she found silt. Who knew that silk came from silkworm's cocoon. This is was amazing to me because i thought cocoons were useless. This is my Student choice for Ancient China.
