About This Book

Stories from the history of the architecture of ancient China are grouped to tell: the development and rationale of pagodas introduced from India by the Emperor Ming Di in the first century AD; bridges of many kinds; stories from the construction of the Great Wall, a permanent but ever-developing element in China's history for over 2000 years. Lively and softly-coloured line drawings are used to show an astonishing amount of historical and scientific information in this presentation of ancient Chinese architecture, which makes this book suitable for readers of all ages.
