Short Intro about Sichuan History
The most important historical period of Sichuan is Ba and Shu Kingdoms. Ba extended to Sichuan from the Han Valley in Shanxi and Hubei down the Jialing River. Shu covered the valley of the Min including Chengdu and other areas of western Sichuan. There was not so many historical records of the existence of early Shu. Shu’s history mainly existed in a mixture of mythological stories and historical legends. Chronicles of Huayang in the Jin dynasty recorded something about Shu. However, the discovery of Sanxingdui in Guanghan eventually exposed the highly developed civilization of an independent bronze industry.
