"Beijing customs history" is a problem all the care and love of history and culture of Beijing people have attached great importance to the. As early as in the pre Qin period China thousands of years ago, rulers of the people understand the customs as an important work, so the old "Caifeng" system. The earliest "folk songs" is the ruler to tour, travel around the well-known mountains and rivers, understand the local customs. Based on the understanding of people customs, can know the performance gains and losses. About "folk songs" is hard, then the rulers of comfort of no longer personally tour, but sending officials out tour, the tour focus from empathy to the investigation of official. Although the "folk songs" activity abolished, but the governor of a person with breadth of vision is still the people of customs as an important work, through the understanding of the people and customs, as the reference data to perform government. From this perspective, custom, history is an important part of the political history. In modern times, and cultural exchanges between China and foreign countries more closely, many western academic thoughts into China, brings new vitality to the traditional academic, foreign scholars on custom history research results, is a good example of. So, people know that in addition to the traditional politics, and names of Anthropology and sociology, can be used to study history. Many of the original in the history of literature is not important contents, can get a more comprehensive understanding and a more profound understanding of the research on people's existing convention. So, custom history and become an important part of research on Anthropology and social. Because of the culture of the Chinese nation has a long history, and a large number of historical documents has left us a great cultural treasures, and in our understanding of the traditional customs of the Chinese nation to provide great convenience, we can make reference to historical literature to interpret the people's customs and life.
