Ordos people[edit]

I had moved this page here, Ordos refers to a Mongol people appeared in the 15th century that had occupied that area. The Ordos people shown no hits at Google Book Search as well[1]. I also removed the infobox, since it pretty much useless, not much a useful way of summarising information that we can get for this article. Eiorgiomugini 17:46, 25 June 2007 (UTC)

What does "Those features generally declayed in further south" mean? PHG 20:51, 25 June 2007 (UTC)

Incomprehensible English[edit]

"Many depictions of the Ordos people tend to have straighten hair."

Does this mean they had "straight hair"? or does it mean they did something to "straighten their hair"?Jakob37 02:18, 26 June 2007 (UTC)

The issue is discussed on User talk:Nlu, among other pages. --Ghirla-трёп- 09:11, 26 June 2007 (UTC)

Geography[edit]

The following passage would seem to be impossible:

"They were in contact and often at war with the pre-Han and Han populations of the period. Their former territory is now located just south of the Great Wall of China, and on the south bank of the northernmost hook of the Yellow river."

The great wall ran along the Ordos/Loess border, far south of the "Northernmost hook" of the Huanghe. Also, which hook? Elijahmeeks 01:15, 3 July 2007 (UTC)

Not Chinese culture[edit]

Similar artifacts were also discovered across East Asia, including Korea, suggesting this wasn't Chinese culture. --Korsentry 06:12, 16 March 2009 (UTC) —Preceding unsigned comment added by KoreanSentry (talkcontribs)

About Lebedinsky and Scythians[edit]

> "According to Lebedynsky, they are thought to be the easternmost people of Scythian affinity to have settled here, just to the east of the better-known Yuezhi, although he provides no facts in support."

> 13. ""The Mongoloid types of the Transbaikal area and Central and Eastern Mongolia are strongly contrasted with the Europoid type displayed at the same time by the Scythian nomads occupying Western Mongolia and their predecessors of the Bronze age". "Les Saces", Lebedinsky, p125"

For genetic evidences of Europoid population of south siberia/west mongolia :

Concerning Scythians and earlier Europoid population in central Asia, there is also this :

Besides, here are also tracks of europid populations in Xinjiang (Tarim mummies, earliest in 1,800 BC) - some were identified as Sakas (a second wave after the first settlers))) and in Linzi (Shandong province) about 500 BC (http://mbe.oxfordjournals.org/cgi/content/full/17/9/1396).

This article covers three separate subjects[edit]

This article essentially covers three separate subjects, namely the paleolithic Ordosian culture, the Bronze Age and Iron Age Ordos culture as well as general human settlement of the Ordos Loop which is unconnected to this article. As the brunt of the content here is connected to the Bronze Age/Iron Age culture, content concerning the paleolithic Ordosian culture should be transferred to a separate Ordosian culture, while content concerning the general history of human history in the Ordos Loop should be transferred to separate section concerning this topic in Ordos Loop, as in accordance with WP:NAD.

I'd be happy with that. Johnbod (talk) 14:40, 18 February 2015 (UTC)
