Hsia, Shang, Chou

Hsia, Shang, Chou These three epochs, which represent the normative pattern for all future dynasties, were equated with the Hsia dynasty (2205-1766 B.C.), the Shang dynasty (1766-1122 B.C.) and the Chou dynasty (1122-221 B.C.), the three dynasties together representing one cycle in the evolution of history. www.christendom-awake.org/pages/dlancash/chineseworks/ConfucianHistory.pdf
