The Huang He, or Yellow River civilization was a group of late stone age and later bronze age civilizations, which, near the end of the period, would come to be dominated by the Cishan and Longshan. These people inhabited the Yellow River, in modern day China. This civilization, at its peak, was populated with about 9.5 million people. The civilization is said to have lasted from 13,000 BC until 3000 BC approximately.

Development

The civilization was said to develop around 13,000 - 10,000 BCE with the discovery of farming. The first cities had began to develop around 7000-3000. The first notable city-state was  Nanzhuangtou. More states began to develop in 4000 BCE With the appearance of the Cishan and Longshan states. Nanzhuangtou continued to be the trade and culture capital of the area until frequent mongol raids and then sacking by the Cishan and Longshan saw it wiped off of the map.

Culture

Culture began to develop with the cities. Shamanism was the main religious practices of the peoples. The shaman was usually high on the social structure, under only the tribal leader and later the king.

Shamanism also had an impact on early music, dance and art.
