  • The registers of population are prepared in Japan. Fifty houses are made a township, and for each township there is appointed an elder. The houses are all associated in groups of five for mutual protection, with one elder to supervise them one with another. This system prevails until the era of World War II.
  • Construction of the Giant Wild Goose Pagoda in Chang'an (modern Xi'an), during the Tang Dynasty (China). It is completed in the same year during the reign of emperor Gao Zong.
