Old Gan

Old Gan (上古贛語, Song-gu Gon-ngi) or Proto-Gan (原始贛語, Ngien-si Gon-ngi) corresponds to the Gan language from the beginning of Qin Dynasty to the latter part of the Han Dynasty.[1]

At the year of 221 BC, the General Tu Sui (屠睢) was sent to the south of China in order to conquer the territory of Baiyue. 500,000 soldiers then settled down at Yugan, Nankang and 3 other places, which formed the initial Chinese population in Jiangxi. In 202 BC, Yuzhang Prefecture (豫章郡) was set up by the Han Dynasty and since then the local population increased rapidly.
