  Zhou Dynasty - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
In the Chinese historical tradition, the rulers of the Zhou displaced the Yin and legitimized their rule by invoking the Mandate of Heaven, the notion that the ruler (the "son of heaven") governed by divine right but that his dethronement would prove that he had lost the mandate.
The Zhou dynasty was founded by the Ji family and had its capital at Hao (near the present-day city of Xi'an).
In Western histories, the Zhou period is often described as feudal because the Zhou's early decentralized rule invites comparison with medieval rule in Europe.

Although by the Eastern Han Dynasty (25-220) jian is no longer used in war, men of position still wear it to show their stature, Daoists still use it to begin incantations, and martial artists still use it in combat.

 An Historical Perspective of Acupuncture | John A. Amaro, DC, FIACA, Dipl. Ac.
Each dynasty greatly contributed to the development of Chinese medicine and acupuncture, except the Qin dynasty, which only lasted 14 years; no specific development was known to come from this time frame.
During the 800 year reign of the Zhou dynasty, some of the most specific discoveries of Chinese medicine were made to include the theoretical foundations of yin and yang, the five elements, the pathogenic factors of external environment as a cause of disease and further understanding of the meridians of acupuncture.
Even though these books were written during the Zhou dynasty, their content dates back to approximately 2500 BC during the reign of the legendary emperor Huang Ti.
