History and culture
Apart from the upper Yellow River Valley provinces, Sichuan was the first area of China to be settled by the Han people. The first organized Chinese migration took place in the 5th century BC.
Sichuan was known as BA Su territory during the Thou Dynasty (11th century-256 BC). During the Qin Dynasty (221-206 BC) the territory was incorporated into the Qin Empire and assumed considerable importance in China's national life. It was at this time that the Dujiangyan irrigation system was built to control the Minjiang River and to irrigate the Chengdu Plain. During the Three Kingdoms Period (AD 220 to 264) the Sichuan region was part of the Shu Kingdom. From the end of this period until the 10th century, Sichuan was known by various names and administered through various political subdivisions. During the Song and Southern Song dynasties (AD 960-1279), it was named Sichuan Lu. Sichuan was established as a province during the Qing dynasty (AD 1644-1911).
