On the issue of ancient Chinese trade with Africa.
 
At Great Zimbabwe Ruins a large number of artefacts have been found of Chinese origin, it is commonly believed these were brought by Arab traders. And if memory serves correct porcelain has been found in China with images of giraffes who's marking are unique to the central Zimbabwe area.

I appreciate your concern for proper usage, but Decebal hasn't been around for about three years, so he probably won't respond to your request. I'd suggest you PM him anyway (it is after all private) and hope he answers.

Never believe anything until it has been officially denied - Sir Humphrey Appleby, 1984.

Well I don't claim any academic qualification on this subject but I have lived and worked among the people of that area, some time ago mind you.

Hi...,

Coins can give the various information about the past time, like the emperors of that time, in which period it has made, and the trades with different countries. so for this purposes coins have more value.

Quite true-famous old commie propaganda-good for a laugh-back in the day that line of Bee Ess went on for decades.
 
Yes, I am old enough to remember it as well.  You name it, they invented it.
 
That's one prob the Chinese don't have as they really did, having invented a whole load of sheet long ago.  I think they can even claim the first attempt at rocket powered space flight (unsuccessful Cry).
What is past is not necessarily settled.

Well, Chinese invented quite a lot of practical things, and certainly we should be thankful of them. However, they lagged behind in mathematics and physics, in comparison to the classical world, and even to the late Middle Ages times, no matter the attempt of some scholars (who don't know those topics) to make Chinese smarter than the rest.

Still they were ahead of the west when concerns many really important inventions. And even if they perhaps have not as extensive literature in physics as the west they were still ahead in using physics for practical matters. And in fields like medicine the chinese were far superior, at least in medieval times. 
 
We must not forget that we often tend to underestimate the amount of chinese literature in different subjects since western schoolars seldom are fluent in chinese and do not always know where to look for such literature.
