              Travel back to AD 17, during the fourth year of the reign of Wang Mang of the Han dynasty, a vibrant and innovative era full of conflicts and contradictions. But as different as the Han culture might have been to other great ancient civilisations, the inhabitants of ancient China... faced the same problems as people have for time immemorial: earning enough money, coping with workplace dramas and keeping your home in order ... although the equivalent in this era was more about bribing inspectors, avoiding bullying from abusive watchmen and trying to keep your house from being looted by Huns. Set in Guanzhong, where the capital Chang'an was located, and the Lower Yellow River and Huai River areas, one of the most culturally and economically developed regions of the empire, 24 Hours in Ancient China brings the everyday actions of ancient Chinese Han citizens vividly to life. In each chapter we meet one of 24 citizens of this ancient culture, from the midwife to the soldier, the priest to the performer and the blacksmith to the tomb looter, and see what an average day in ancient China was really like.
