Good stuff!
1. Here's a map of Qing that extends a bit farther into the Northeast.

2. The shifts from Neolithic to Shang and Zhou, do they mean that the people outside the area of control were autonomous, or that the people were moved around?

This map appears highly questionable, documents of Qing presence in the area north of the Amur/Heilongjiang, and on Sakhalin is simply lacking. It is highly likely that regions beyond the Amur were at most tributaries. Even areas south of the Amur, the Qing at most, put up small posts such as those on Tyr, which were usually unmanned.

I would say among all dynasties in chinese history, Qing dynasty has the largest territorial size. Qing territorial expansion reached its height during Qianlong's era with conquest of Xinjiang and Tibet.

Actually, Qing's territory changes.. before 1684, I think Qing doesn't include Taiwan and the territory was not as large as that above.

Who originally lived in these northern territories? The Russians travelled a long way to get there...
