The types of clothing worn and the materials used during the Han period depended upon social class. Wealthy folk could afford silk robes, skirts, socks, and mittens, coats made of badger or fox fur , duck plumes, and slippers with inlaid leather, pearls , and silk lining.
Peasants commonly wore clothes made of hemp , wool , and ferret skins. Families throughout Han China made ritual sacrifices of animals and food to deities, spirits, and ancestors at temples and shrines. They believed that these items could be utilized by those in the spiritual realm.
It was believed that immortality could be achieved if one reached the lands of the Queen Mother of the West or Mount Penglai. Its followers believed that the sage-philosopher Laozi fl.
In Han government, the emperor was the supreme judge and lawgiver, the commander-in-chief of the armed forces and sole designator of official nominees appointed to the top posts in central and local administrations; those who earned a bushel salary-rank or higher.
Nevertheless, emperors sometimes did reject the majority opinion reached at court conferences. He could appoint officials below the salary-rank of bushels.
He shared similar duties with the Chancellor, such as receiving annual provincial reports. However, when his title was changed to Minister of Works in 8 BC, his chief duty became oversight of public works projects.
The Grand Commandant, whose title was changed to Grand Marshal in BC before reverting to Grand Commandant in 51 AD, was the irregularly posted commander of the military and then regent during the Western Han period. In the Eastern Han era he was chiefly a civil official who shared many of the same censorial powers as the other two Councillors of State.
In the Han dynasty, excluding kingdoms and marquessates, was divided, in descending order of size, into political units of provinces zhou , commanderies jun , and counties xian. The heads of provinces, whose official title was changed from Inspector to Governor and vice versa several times during Han, were responsible for inspecting several commandery-level and kingdom-level administrations.
A governor could take various actions without permission from the imperial court. The lower-ranked inspector had executive powers only during times of crisis, such as raising militias across the commanderies under his jurisdiction to suppress a rebellion. A commandery consisted of a group of counties, and was headed by an Administrator. Before BC some kingdoms were ruled by non-relatives, granted to them in return for their services to Emperor Gaozu.
The administration of each kingdom was very similar to that of the central government. With these reforms, kings were reduced to being nominal heads of their fiefs, gaining a personal income from only a portion of the taxes collected in their kingdom. Like a king, the marquess collected a portion of the tax revenues in his fief as personal income.
At the beginning of the Han dynasty, every male commoner aged twenty-three was liable for conscription into the military. The year of training was served in one of three branches of the armed forces: A small professional paid standing army was stationed near the capital.
During the Eastern Han, conscription could be avoided if one paid a commutable tax. The Eastern Han court favored the recruitment of a volunteer army.
During times of war, the volunteer army was increased, and a much larger militia was raised across the country to supplement the Northern Army. Regiments were divided into companies and led by Captains. Platoons were the smallest units of soldiers.
The Han dynasty inherited the ban liang coin type from the Qin. In the beginning of the Han, Emperor Gaozu closed the government mint in favor of private minting of coins. This caused widespread inflation that was not reduced until BC when Emperor Wen allowed private minters to manufacture coins that were precisely 2. In BC Emperor Jing abolished private minting in favor of central-government and commandery-level minting; he also introduced a new coin.
Since commandery-issued coins were often of inferior quality and lighter weight, the central government closed commandery mints and monopolized the issue of coinage in BC. This Central government issuance of coinage was overseen by the Superintendent of Waterways and Parks , this duty being transferred to the Minister of Finance during Eastern Han.
Merchants were required to pay a higher rate of coins. The widespread circulation of coin cash allowed successful merchants to invest money in land, empowering the very social class the government attempted to suppress through heavy commercial and property taxes. The small landowner-cultivators formed the majority of the Han tax base; this revenue was threatened during the latter half of Eastern Han when many peasants fell into debt and were forced to work as farming tenants for wealthy landlords.
These reforms included reducing taxes, temporary remissions of taxes, granting loans and providing landless peasants temporary lodging and work in agricultural colonies until they could recover from their debts.
The consequent loss of government revenue was compensated for by increasing property taxes. The labor tax took the form of conscripted labor for one month per year, which was imposed upon male commoners aged fifteen to fifty-six. This could be avoided in Eastern Han with a commutable tax, since hired labor became more popular. In the early Western Han, a wealthy salt or iron industrialist, whether a semi-autonomous king or wealthy merchant, could boast funds that rivaled the imperial treasury and amass a peasant workforce of over a thousand.
This kept many peasants away from their farms and denied the government a significant portion of its land tax revenue. Liquor was another profitable private industry nationalized by the central government in 98 BC. However, this was repealed in 81 BC and a property tax rate of two coins for every 0. The Han dynasty was a unique period in the development of premodern Chinese science and technology, comparable to the level of scientific and technological growth during the Song dynasty — In the 1st millennium BC, typical ancient Chinese writing materials were bronzewares , animal bones , and bamboo slips or wooden boards.
The oldest known Chinese piece of hard, hempen wrapping paper dates to the 2nd century BC. Evidence suggests that blast furnaces , that convert raw iron ore into pig iron , which can be remelted in a cupola furnace to produce cast iron by means of a cold blast and hot blast , were operational in China by the late Spring and Autumn period — BC.
The three-legged iron seed drill , invented by the 2nd century BC, enabled farmers to carefully plant crops in rows instead of casting seeds out by hand. It had three plowshares , a seed box for the drills, a tool which turned down the soil and could sow roughly 45, m 2 This system switched the positions of furrows and ridges between growing seasons.
Timber was the chief building material during the Han dynasty; it was used to build palace halls, multi-story residential towers and halls and single-story houses. Thorp points out the scarcity of Han-era archaeological remains, and claims that often unreliable Han-era literary and artistic sources are used by historians for clues about lost Han architecture.
Though Han wooden structures decayed, some Han-dynasty ruins made of brick, stone, and rammed earth remain intact. This includes stone pillar-gates, brick tomb chambers, rammed-earth city walls , rammed-earth and brick beacon towers, rammed-earth sections of the Great Wall , rammed-earth platforms where elevated halls once stood, and two rammed-earth castles in Gansu. The courtyard house is the most common type of home portrayed in Han artwork.
These provide valuable clues about lost wooden architecture. The artistic designs found on ceramic roof tiles of tower models are in some cases exact matches to Han roof tiles found at archaeological sites. Over ten Han-era underground tombs have been found, many of them featuring archways , vaulted chambers, and domed roofs. From Han literary sources, it is known that wooden-trestle beam bridges , arch bridges , simple suspension bridges , and floating pontoon bridges existed in Han China.
The distillation furnaces were heated by natural gas funneled to the surface through bamboo pipelines. Han-era mechanical engineering comes largely from the choice observational writings of sometimes-disinterested Confucian scholars who generally considered scientific and engineering endeavors to be far beneath them.
For example, in 15 BC the philosopher and writer Yang Xiong described the invention of the belt drive for a quilling machine, which was of great importance to early textile manufacturing.
Modern archaeology has led to the discovery of Han artwork portraying inventions which were otherwise absent in Han literary sources. As observed in Han miniature tomb models, but not in literary sources, the crank handle was used to operate the fans of winnowing machines that separated grain from chaff. These calipers contain inscriptions of the exact day and year they were manufactured. These tools are not mentioned in any Han literary sources.
The waterwheel appeared in Chinese records during the Han. As mentioned by Huan Tan about AD 20, they were used to turn gears that lifted iron trip hammers , and were used in pounding, threshing and polishing grain. The chain pump was first mentioned in China by the philosopher Wang Chong in his 1st-century Balanced Discourse. The armillary sphere , a three-dimensional representation of the movements in the celestial sphere , was invented in Han China by the 1st century BC.
Three Han mathematical treatises still exist. Han-era mathematical achievements include solving problems with right-angle triangles , square roots , cube roots , and matrix methods ,  finding more accurate approximations for pi ,  providing mathematical proof of the Pythagorean theorem ,  use of the decimal fraction ,  Gaussian elimination to solve linear equations ,  and continued fractions to find the roots of equations.
