China Ancient Culture
The term “China ancient culture” is often employed in comparison with “China modern culture”, meaning the culture of the traditional, classic China before the full-scale introduction of Western influences. And historians tend to use the Opium War of 1839~1842 as a watershed dividing the two. Over history, China never ceased exchanging with other cultures, and had assimilated many influences from various neighboring countries, especially those coming via the Silk Road. But these are still deemed part of China ancient culture. It is the Western influences that almost turned China on its head since the mid-19th century, and that distinguish China modern culture from China ancient culture.
