Abstract

China is an ancient Eastern civilization with a long history, and the only country on earth whose civilization has extended uninterrupted from ancient times to the present. In its more than 5,000 years of development, China experienced many territorial changes and dynastic successions during which it experienced countless internal and external trials and tribulations and political disintegration, but the general trend of the unity of China was never blocked, and in the end China became a united multi-nationality country. In this historical process, all the nationalities that lived and multiplied on Chinese land created a pattern of cultural diversity within national unity through their interaction and integration. The formation of this pattern is due not only to the geographical fact that China covers a broad territory on the Asian continent but also to the historical fact that it has large numbers of ancient human remains and culturally diverse historical sources.
