Answer by harveymac1336
Chinese civilization begins in northeast China along the Huang Ho, the Yellow River (Honan, Shantung, and Shensi provinces). Perhaps by about 10,000 B.C. Chinese culture developed from the Yangshao and the Longshan cultures. The Yangshao culture reached the peak of its development about 3,000 B.C. The mythical Xia (Shia) Dynasty is believed to be China’s first dynasty. China’s history becomes historic with the Shang Dynasty (1766 B.C.). So Chinese culture developed first along the Yellow River valley in the northeast. It spread out from there to other parts of what is now China. I don’t think there was an early Chinese culture in the Yangtse valley. I hope that this has been a help to you.
