'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.

We can send your item(s) in the following ways:
Courier Tracked - Order before 1pm, we can pack and post the same day to be with you the next working day, this is not a weekend service. It is fully tracked and we will send you the tracking number when we process your order.
Evri - In our experience an extremely slow service, we cannot guarantee it will arrive. It isn't an option on the website for good reason, so if you want this pitiful service and your parcel thrown into a random hedge near your house, if you're lucky, just to save about £2 then simply call us on 0117 942 5832 and we can process your order over the phone. 
Fedex Worldwide - For anywhere outside the UK, we can post the same day but delivery times are dependent on the destination. Approximate delivery times are as follows:
