Found something else out about this. Chen Shou died in 297, so he must have started it it around... 285? Just a guess, but I think it would't have been started in the mid-190's.

EDIT: Whoops. Sorry. What I meant was it would have been finished before 297.

Started? I thought we were talking about finished. Chen Shou probably started compiling material for SGZ while he was working in Shu's library, which would have been in the 260s.

Moreover, he had direct access to records from much earlier, and in many cases, information from those records was directly transcribed into SGZ. So in a sense, you could say that the primary sources for SGZ would have dated from the beginnings of each of the three kingdoms.

Hey,

I was just wondering where are Dongxing/Dongguan, Liang Wu, and Liang Cheng?

I was just wondering where the battles between Wu and Wei in 253 took place.

If you don't mind, Lu Kang, I would like to add to your question; Can someone give me detailed info on the battles in 253, since I don't know much about it, not even the locations.

Hey Kuan P'ing! Sorry, but I don't think Guan Ping's style name was recorded. Sorry! :(

Wow, that is some good information on Dong Xing but it still doesn't really give the actual location as in on a map location. Perhaps someone could give me a link to a high detail map (it's probably gotta be a Chinese one) or if it's there point it out on a map http://www.glink.net.hk/~jkc/map.htm .

Thanks in advance

I think Dong Xing is near the area of Wujiang(rotk9 port). Not so sure.

as I put in the locked thread (I feel so embarest*) I read all of lu xun's bios here and found very little on lu xun's death. I don't get it all, so could some one elaborate?
