Images[edit]

I found some information on the Damaidi historical site here: http://images.google.com/imgres?imgurl=http://bp3.blogger.com/_ERGrznxTIwo/Rk-5j1Jn-VI/AAAAAAAAC3Y/EaSKD3K15ug/s400/damaidi%2Bcarving%2B6.jpg&imgrefurl=http://fisherwy.blogspot.com/2007/05/chinese-writing-8000-years-old.html&h=400&w=271&sz=57&hl=en&start=2&um=1&tbnid=1iXUWv_JL7bTAM:&tbnh=124&tbnw=84&prev=/images%3Fq%3Ddamaidi%26um%3D1%26hl%3Den%26sa%3DN —Preceding unsigned comment added by 70.110.29.236 (talk) 23:28, 27 July 2008 (UTC)

Context[edit]

Besides simply being an old system of writing, why is the find considered important? How does it relate, in the opinion of experts, to later Chinese writing systems? How does it relate to the rise of other writing systems in terms of the development of civilization (as we modernly consider it)? Obviously, the article is very short at the current time, but these are the kinds of questions that need to be answered to place the subject in proper context when expanding this article. --Vassyana (talk) 18:02, 11 May 2009 (UTC)

That's broadly covered at Neolithic signs in China but expansion is never a bad thing. Akerbeltz (talk) 20:31, 19 April 2011 (UTC)
