Storyboard Text

  • the Han dynasty had a large, well-organized  army.  the army was helped by new  technologies,  advances in iron making improved the strength and quality of armor .They  made fish-scale armor that moved with the body of the solders. The Hans were the first people to make iron swords that helped then enormously in the army. the Han loved to use the crossbow, which shot arrows.  The Han also invented the kite, which they also used for clever military purposes. 
  • Han farmers had to grow enough food for families, their own homes and clothes. They also were required to stock up  shared granaries. They were also forced to give a month of unpaid labor to the government.  In addition, droughts and floods could kill crops. There were some inventions that helped farmers do their work. These  included the Chinese wheelbarrow, the chain pump, and the iron plow. 
  • The two most  important industries in China were silk and salt. Silk is a material made from the  fibers of the silkworm cocoon. The Han developed a foot-powered machine that would wind the silk onto a large reel, ready for use. Silk was highly demanded.  Salt was used to preserve meat and veggies in the ancient times. Usually people got salt from the sea,  but the Hans learned that they could mine for salt.
  • The invention of paper made a great change in Han art and communication.  Before paper, the Hans used bamboo or silk. But both those things had disadvantages. Paper was made of different materials.  Such included, silk fibers, hemp, bamboo, straw and seaweed. They were boiled into a pulp and then spread out to dry.
  • The Chinese believed that illnesses  formed when the forces of yin and yang were unbalanced. Healers tried to restore the yin and yang to cure illness. They used acupuncture and moxibustion to heal.In acupuncture several needles were  inserted into specific parts of the body. In moxibustion,  a cone of dry leaves is placed on the persons body and burned.
  • And, um... that brings us to the end of my report on The Han Dynasty.
