China Abridged is topic of February seminar at CCU

China Abridged will be the topic of a seminar on Saturday, Feb. 4, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., at Coastal Carolina Universitys Waccamaw Higher Education Center in Litchfield.

China invented gunpowder, paper, the compass and printing. Recent scholarship has placed the Chinese in America 30 years before Columbus came this country. Chinese medicine is now practiced in many places, including Myrtle Beach. Westerners talk about the yin/yang of things (Taoism), quote the golden rule (Confucius) and Zen this or that (Zen Buddhism) all exports of China.
