I am curious Angle as to your sources for asserting that the remains of the Yellow emperor as Caucasian (white). I would also be interested as to how your claim of the traditional teaching of the Buddha are not from India. I am guessing of course that you believe these teaching are also Caucasian (white) as well. After all you are a proud english christian individual.

These are Caucasian remnants... The Chinese Government has been covering this up for generations. The facts are there, before the Chinese population exploded there was Caucasians. And they influenced what we would say is Chinese culture today the Buddhist religion for one is wrongly accredited to the Asian race.

My studies of Qin Shi Huang indicate he has been grossly mis-reprtesented for over 2000 years. http://www.slideshare.net/ShibumiMC/the-first-emperor-of-china-fiction-fact

Hello Vlad - I'd like to post my URL but that is not allowed. Go to amazon and search "the school of sun tzu" - you'll find it all there.

Looks like this site has lifted its prohibition of URLs. Have a look at my report on Qin Shi Huang - your comments appreciated.

Ancient Technology

The four-handled tureen adorned with dragons, birds and spikes
Chinese archaeologists have discovered ritual tureen and “soup bowls” next to a badly decomposed body in a Zhou dynasty-era tomb. Among the remains there were also uncovered two wine vessels, which experts suggest were probably used as part of the funerary rituals.

Ancient Places

Healing Temple of Aesculapius (Asklepios) by Robert Thom
In the ancient world, many cultures built elaborate temple complexes dedicated to their healer gods - Imhotep in Egypt and Asklepios in Greece for example. These gods were recognized as having the power to cure supplicants from a variety of ailments within sleep and sacred dreams. Those who desired healing might travel many hundreds of miles to reach such a temple
