Shell bone character for Horse(Uma)

"Shell bone character" that began to be used in around 1300 in B.C. is called the first Kanji.

This character was used to engrave it to record the content in turtle's shell used for the fortune-telling at that time.

It is not understood whether before that though it is certain that there was a Kanji from recent.

Actually, the shell bone character develops considerably as a character. There are a lot of scholars who expect the existence of the character before that, too.

Because a certain scholar had paid attention to "Dragon's bone" of the material of the Chinese medicine, the shell bone character was discovered.
