What was the nature of property exchange in ancient China and how can we describe its historical background? How have people researched the monetary economy of ancient China? To what kinds of topics have we paid attention? How and where can we do our own research on this topic? Based on this chapter, there was not only a continuity but also a great transformation from the Eastern Han period to the Three kingdoms period, so what influence did it have on the whole society? This chapter focuses on these questions and submits five tasks from now on.
