What in the sam-dickens do those links have to do with serious historiography. Everyone knows that when one speaks of Bronze Age China it refers to a particular cultural epoch that also saw the introduction of writing and encompasses a dating of from 2100 to 1050 BC. Within the generalization there are varied cultural distictives and intermediary processes so that  what we are assessing is a cultural process. Iron implements have been retrieved with dating possible to the years 1400-1200 BC but such does not translate into claiming that iron had immediate cultural impact. Hence, historians are hardly upset in associating 600 BC as a good periodization for the consolidation of Iron Age China. We are discussing tansformations and adaptations within a specific society and not making labels the paramount consideration.
