the tang dynasty
so good others take our culture.
The Tang Dynasty began around 550 CE, and fell around 1000 CE.
The Tang Dynasty has contributed many different things to our society, like gunpowder, the compass, the mechanical clock, porcelain, the spinning wheel, and block printing.
Much of the Japanese and Korean culture was borrowed form the Chinese during the Tang Dynasty: Buddhism, writing system, respect for nature, and the "5 Relationships" of Confucianism.
The Silk Road helped the dynasty extend westward. It also connected China with western cultures, especially the Muslim and the Byzantine Empire.
The Tang Dynasty also created amazing pieces of artwork! Click the button below for more information!
