'On the back' of Sports & Games in Ancient China
Sports and games in China claim a history as long and as rich as the country's civilization. Ancient relics that have been unearthed indicate that Chinese of 4,000 to 10,000 years ago practised physical exercises to limber up. As far back as the Western Zhou Dynasty (c. 11th century-771 B.C.), archery and the lifting of bronze tripods were practised in forms that we today accept as sports.
In this collection there are 40 articles introducing performing and entertaining sports and keep-fit activities in ancient China, such as: shooting, polo, ice sports, swimming, buda ball, weightlifting, football, qigong, daoyin, wuqinxi, and wrestling.
The book contains illustrations of paintings from relics that tell us about and give us an idea of the history of sports and games during the various ages of Chinese history.
