According to archaeological discoveries, human civilization began to appear in Sichuan 25,000 years ago.
During the Shang and Zhou Dynasties, the Sichuan state established the Shu Kingdom centered on the ancient Shu people.
During the Warring States Period, Sheriff Li Bing and his sons, drawing on the previous experience of water control, presided over the construction of the famous Dujiangyan water conservancy project. An efficient irrigation system was established in the Western Sichuan Plain, thereby achieving unprecedented agricultural prosperity.
In the Western Han Dynasty, the prototype of Sichuan was laid.
During the Tang and Song Dynasties, the Shu culture represented by Li Bai, Du Fu, and Su Dongpo was highly prosperous.
During the Song and Yuan Dynasties, there were many peasant uprisings in Sichuan. Especially in the early Yuan Dynasty, a century of continuous conflicts caused huge damage to the Sichuan economy, a large number of soldiers and civilians were slaughtered, and the population fell sharply.
In the 20th century, Sichuan played an important role in the Anti-Japanese War. About 3.5 million people from Sichuan went out to fight against Japan and defend their country.
Today, under the impetus of the Chinese government, Sichuan began to use the western development policy to make active and vigorous development in all aspects.
