The Qin Dynasty Most Lasting Contribution Starts with Qins Intellectual
This is a picture of the emperor Shi HuangDi
QIn Shi Huang Di Was the first emporor of china.The unification of china started after the warring states period and when all of the 7 states were defeated by the army of the Qin dynasty. Also after the victory the Qin dynasty was one of the most powerfull states in china during the 256 bc. Also the emporer Shi Huang Di had ideas of keeping the power inside of china and if he did not create some of those ideas then china will be different today.Also when he was 15 he wanted to make china the beast place and the first thing he thought about was the tomb and the terrocata soldiers which contributed to the arts and economy of china.
This Leads To the economy of the Qin Dynasty
The Economy Of the Qin empire included lots of many things. The great wall was built too have sequirity( Watch towers,and artilaries) and make sure that the enemies stay out and the Chinese people stay in. So the population of the Qin dynasty stayed in between the barriers of the connected walls. The silk road helped the Qin dynasty empire because it was a trading system that extended from china trough across the meditarian which made china more open and gather more recources and people which help turn the Qin Dynasty. IN the Qin dynasty the people who lived there felt safe because of the army and the footsoldiers and the horsman that were being used which caused them to win there war and unify china.
The Qin Dynasty Contributed A lot to Arts Of china
The Qin dynasty valued art a lot.The emperor Shi HuangDi made a tomb full of terrocata soldiers to guard his own tomb which was very close to his. When those terracota soldiers were made there was hardened clay and armor on those statues that look like the armor that the foot soldiers would wear when they are having a war. To show the value of there arts and craft the emperor shi Huang Di made about 8,000 terrocata soldiers, 500 Calvary horses, and about 100 of generals, and carvery men. Across from this army tomb there was a tomb that was created for emperor Shi huang di and it was made to show the emperors immortality the emperors tomb there were Mercury rivers and jewels on the wall because shi Huang DI drank the mercury water then called himself immortal. Also since they valued art and the emporor they set up bow and arrow traps so nobody can ever steal or raid the tomb which was guarded by terrocata soldiers a few miles away.This shows that the Qin empire really valued art because it made china the way it is now.
Then The Qin Dynasty Had Politics
The emperor Shi Huang Di had improved lots of things in china. He improved the economy, the military of china to make sure no outsiders will come to china. He also improved local places to make it not better for him but for china as a whole. Also legalism was taking in by the politics which burned books that disagreed with the policies of legalism. Had to make sure that the government was doing it's job correctly and he divided the military into separate groups and divided the population. Had taxes on the people and ordered lots of labor for the construction of the levee, great wall, His tomb, and the terracotta warriors.People who went against the political structure then they would be executed for spreading detail about what is going on in one empire to the other.
Qin's Social Structure.
The social structure of the Qin dynasty was split into 3 different parts which were soldiers,artists, and workers and it treated the soldiers and the poor the same way because the soldiers never got to rest because they are too busy watching the great wall of china and keeping the enemies out. Also there are the artists which try too make china look like the nicest place. Also China was very open for trade so the workers and the artist have to go and trade materials so it can keep china standing and not lose any of it's currency.
The Religion Of The Qin Dynasty
The Qin dynasty didn't really have that much religion but they had some type of belief in the afterlife and the immortality of the people. Also during the Qin dynasty there was no religion because people kept on fighting over Buddhism , confusion is which caused a spark and caused most of the books and other things to be burned. The Qin dynasty just stayed with legalism which changed up lots of structures for this empire.
