Scientist explores connection between Shang Dynasty China and ancient Peruvian cultures


Similarities in ancient art and artifacts found in China and Peru have led some scholars to suggest an ancient link between the two
cultures. Now a Chinese scientist will be undertaking genetic testing of remains of ancient Chinese people and Peruvians to determine whether South
America was visited by Shang Dynasty people beginning around 1,000 BC.

The Shang Dynasty collapsed around 1046 BC. Scholars are saying Chinese people made contact with indigenous people of the Americas around then, long
before the Europeans arrived in 1492 AD, or earlier when Vikings may have made landfall in the far north of North America around 1000 AD.

Chinese scholars say a link is worthwhile exploring because it’s possible to recognize Chinese influence and even characters in ancient geoglyphs,
pottery, artifacts, carpets and garments of ancient American Mochica, Nazca, Paracas and Inca people, says an article in El Comercio….

I thought I’d pop in and post this interesting read. If true, then I think they should also check out the Olmecs in Central America as well, to me
and my untrained eye there seems to be many more similarities between Chinese and Olmec art than Chinese and Peruvian. We’ll just have to wait and
see what they find genetically speaking.

It wouldn’t surprise me if there were an ancient maritime connection.
