An Introduction to Database for Chu Manuscripts in Warring States China


I. Introduction

Recently the Internet Database for Ancient Chinese Characters has been constructed by Center for the Study and Application of Chinese Characters (CSACC) at East China Normal University (ECNU) in Shanghai, China. The database includes oracle bone inscriptions, bronze inscriptions, Chu manuscripts in warring states, and manuscripts in Qin and Han dynasty. Now the database is still being reviewed by experts, and cannot be open to scholars yet. The website of database is http://www.wenzisys.cn/ChineseCharacter .

The instructions of each database are very similar. Here we will introduce the Database for Chu Manuscripts in Warring States China.

  1. I was curious if you ever considered changing the page layout of your blog?
    Its very well written; I love what youve got to say.
    But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with it better.
    Youve got an awful lot of text for only having one or two images.
    Maybe you could space it out better?



Thank you for your generation!
