Archaeologists have discovered evidence that proves China's Great Flood, a 4,000-year-old disaster on the Yellow River.
The flood led to birth of the Xia dynasty and modern Chinese civilization.

Findings suggest that a massive flood did occur, but that it was in 1920 BC, several centuries later than traditionally thought.

The flood would be one of the largest known floods on Earth in the last 10,000 years. It i thought that the flood was 38 meters.

Radiocarbon dating on the discovered bones showed that they died in 1920 BC, coinciding with a major cultural transition in China.
