This seminar continues from the former half of this school year. Formerly, on the Warring States period (453-221BC), scholars only could study history of the Qin state in the late stage of the period. Regarding the early and middle stages of the period, and the six states except Qin, it was difficult to chronologically understand the historical transition because of confusion of chronology as well as absolute lack of materials.
