Did the Chinese 4000 years ago build an iron bridge?

Is this a myth or fact. I need to know if it’s true. I’m having a debate with my dad.

I think he even mentioned the fact they used rivets. I think he might be drunk, but I could be wrong.

but I remember seeing something about this on tv. On the history channel, I think it was. Not sure about the date, tho.
Listen to your dad. :wink:

Here’s another. Speaks of “chain link” bridges in China, a few thousand years ago.
