A few weeks ago, Kate Merkel-Hess posted a list here at China Beat of her nominations for five Chinese historical events that should get more attention. In response, Charles Hayford has written a piece at Frog In a Well about five historical events that didn’t happen. Hayford’s piece not only proposes a few likely turns of history that didn’t happen, but also debunks a few popular historical assumptions that never were.
