/* Earliest Chinese archeological findings */ new section
*(3)In the other half dozen or so references I have dug up since returning home and finding your reversion, I can not find any reference at all to Aryans/Indo Europeans entering what would become the "Known world" before about 2000 B.C. (although there is obviously a "homeland" before they went their separate ways.
:I request that you consider reinstating at least the intent of my edit, or at least give some reference for your statement about these "3000B.C. Aryans". I really am trying to help here...as mentioned re the China article, I would have tried to discuss this before I edited but the page was locked. [[User:AlanE|AlanE]] 20:34, 11 February 2009 (EST)
 
== Earliest Chinese archeological findings ==
 
I'm not sure what source indicates that the earliest signs of civilization in China were circa 1766-1122 B.C., but that doesn't seem right. According to this link from the Metropolitan Museum in NYC, early Chinese cultures were making objects like flutes circa 7000–5700 B.C.: [http://www.metmuseum.org/toah/hd/jiah/hd_jiah.htm] Here's a secondary reference as well: [http://www.shakuhachi.com/K-9KChineseFlutes-Nature.html] --[[User:DinsdaleP|DinsdaleP]] 13:48, 16 February 2009 (EST)
