Advanced cities: The Zhou Dynasty was one of the biggest to exist in their time. After they overthrew the Shang Dynasty, they became the most powerful rulers in all of ancient China. They controlled the area from Huang He to Chang Jiang, and in order to control this big area they invented Feudalism. With that, the were able to maintain easy control over the land. Feudalism helped out alot with that, as the royal members were spread out across the king's land and were assigned certain portions to control. With that advantage came protection and riches. In return, they had to provide the king with military support and taxes. This spurred one of the most revolutionary things to ever happen in history, as feudalism was used for centuries after the Zhou Dynasty. Loyang was their capital city. The last Shang king committed suicide, and the victor moved the capital to the city of Zhengzhou. That period known in ancient Chinese history as the Zhou dynasty had begun. Early Zhou adopted the ritual and burial practices of the Shang. Typical Shang forms of bronze ritual vessels continued to be made. The burial of chariots, horses and charioteers in pits associated with the nobility also continued from Shang timesTheir cities then became more and more advanced. They had things like hard dirt roads and were full of hardworking people. The people in the cities invented many things, and their work soon became something that wasn’t as rare anymore. Trading became popular among cities, and with that came new ideas and that further helped to advance the city even more.The cities dynamic it self was pretty much the same throughout the entire kingdom. Places of worship and important stores and shops were found in the heart of the city, and surrounding that was housing. This was all found inside of a mudbrick wall, and outside of it were acres of farmland, then woods. Many of the cities were found near forests and riverbanks. The types of people who usually lived in the inner city were prophets, philosophers, religious leaders, and specialized workers, and government officials. The poorer people lived in the outer part of the city, where there was just housing. Those people were the farmers and the workmen, along with the women and children.
