    Chinese recorded history is over 4.000 years and not 3.000 years

    I cleared that up in this thread. The recorded history of the the Yellow River valley is 3500 years. The recorded history of all ethnic Han China is only 2500 years old. If you count the time when history was recorded in all the territory of modern China, then written history only starts 1400 years ago, because writing didn't reach Tibet until the 7th century CE (600 years after Scandinavia).
