Hello everyone,

I found this forum when searching the web for information about China in the late 17th century.

Perhaps you can give me some hints or links on the topics

- what was daily life then
- clothing
- travelling
- the manadrin structure (e.g. the difference between the civil mandarins and the military mandarins. I read they wore different signs on the breast according to their level, but I couldn't find out which ones)
- the Eight Banners

All information (Web-Links, books, personal advice) is highly appreciated.

I read english and german (my mothertongue)

Thanks and best wishes
from lousy cold Vienna

Well I can't answer all of those questions, but one topic I can approach is what insignia Qing officials wore on their robes.

For military officials the insignia were: Rank 9-Hippo, Rank 8 & 7- Rhino, Rank 6-Tiger cub, Rank 5-bear, Rank 4-tiger, Rank 3-leopard, Rank 2-lion, Rank 1 - mythical animal (I think a qilin).

For civil officials - Rank 9-sparrow, rank 8 & 7 - Duck/quail, rank 6- egret, rank 5- dove, rank 4- goose, rank 3- peacock, rank 2- rooster, rank 1- crane.

Check out this website for Qing dynasty info:

http://www.answers.c.../qing-dynasty-1

Look at the bottom for information on the Eight-Banner System.

Life in the Qing all depended on the time period. In the beginning, people were wealthy and happy. Near the end however, around 1800s to early 1900s, people were often hungry, rebellions often arouse, and foreign powers were everywhere.

Hi,

Sanfu, thanks for the insignia index. Great. :haha:


Zuo Zongtang - thanks to you also for your helpful link. I just rushed through it and will check it properly when I got more time.

Concerning daily life at that period, I'm keen on details. What existed at that period e.g. professions, meeting points, how did they spent their leisure time? How were the structures in the villages?

thanks
Sagi
