      Compiled toward the end of the Former Han dynasty ( BCE-9 CE) by Liu Xiang ( BCE), the Lienü zhuan is the earliest extant book in the Chinese tradition solely devoted to the education of women. Far from providing a unified vision of women's roles, the text promotes a diverse and sometimes contradictory range of practices. The helmets of generals in the ming dynasty looked more like this helmet while General Li’s helmet most closely resembles this helmet from the Han dynasty. Also, though not explicitly bad history, the Hun archer mentions that the village they are about to attack is surrounded by black pines.
