China, Northern Zhou Dynasty, Emperor Wu, 557 - 581 A.D.

Click for a larger photo
Zhou_Wu_TangEmperor Wu of Northern Zhou (543Ė578), personal name Yuwen Yong, nickname Miluotu, was an emperor of the Xianbei dynasty Northern Zhou. As was the case of the reigns of his brothers Emperor Xiaomin and Emperor Ming, the early part of his reign was dominated by his cousin Yuwen Hu, but in 572 he ambushed Yuwen Hu and seized power personally. He thereafter ruled ably and built up the power of his military, destroying rival Northern Qi in 577 and annexing its territory. His death the next year, however, ended his ambitions of uniting China, and under the reign of his erratic son Emperor Xuan (Yuwen Yun), Northern Zhou itself soon deteriorated and was usurped by Yang Jian in 581.

China, Han Dynasty, Five Bronze Belt Hooks, c. 206 B.C. - 220 A.D.

Click for a larger photo
The Han Dynasty (206 BC - 220 AD) was an age of economic prosperity, with significant growth of the money economy, and advances in science and technology, including papermaking, the nautical steering rudder, the use of negative numbers in mathematics, the raised-relief map, the hydraulic-powered armillary sphere for astronomy, and a seismometer employing an inverted pendulum. The emperor was at the pinnacle of society but shared power with the nobility and appointed ministers who came largely from the scholarly gentry. From the reign of Emperor Wu, the court sponsored Confucianism, a policy that endured until the fall of the Qing Dynasty in 1911 AD.
