The Han Dynasty was the first Dynasty to create paper, this makes life much easier Paper was extremely crucial for the progress of China. “Tens of thousands of written documents have come down to our day, most of them on wooden tablets and slips of bamboo.”(Violatti, 2017). Making exporting letters, important and classified information, and trade information, much easier. The invention of paper will improve the thoughts and creativity of China. Also, allowing them to be intellectually advanced. “A screen was dipped into a vat of watery oatmeal-like pulp made of rice straw and inner tree bark. When the screen was raised, it had a layer of dripping slush on top, which was later pressed and dried. The end result was a sheet of paper” (Violate, 2013).
