Part 2. The Home of the Ancient Yue State During the Spring and Autumn Period (Pre-Qin Dynasty)

 

When Central China was in the Xia, Shang and Zhou periods, the Yue people, different from the Huaxia people, were active in the region now named Zhejiang Province. They were the oldest and most developed branch of the Baiyue tribes as mentioned in the classics of the Spring and Autumn Period. At the end of the Spring and Autumn Period, the Yue people established their capital in Kuaiji (now Shaoxing, Zhejiang Province). After years of preparation and training, the Yue people finally destroyed the State of Wu and led their troops northward, ruling southeastern China for some time.


Assimilating into the culture of Central China, the Yue people maintained their regional culture and enriched it with new ideas, thus creating the Ancient Yue Civilization in the lower reaches of the Yangtze River in the Eastern Zhou Dynasty. Stamped hard pottery, proto-porcelain, technology for casting bronze and many other handicrafts thrived, making remarkable contributions to Chinese civilization.
