In 1942 AD Harbin China, the Japanese government encountered a small infestation of zombies on a pacific Island mentioned in the travels of Francis Drake. They captured eight, and started the experiment “Cherry Blossom” which attempted to breed zombies. They could not find any traces of Solanum, meaning they could not create “fresh” zombies without making them breed. They tried to train them as mindless drones, but 10 of 16 instructors were bitten, and it was decided to drop ten zombies on British and Chinese forces. One plane was hit by British AA-fire, killing everyone onboard. The zombies that dropped were killed by Chinese snipers.
About Harbin: Human settlement in the Harbin area dates from at least 2200 BC during the late Stone Age. Wanyan Aguda, the founder and first emperor (reigned 1115-1123) of the Jin dynasty (1115–1234), was born in the Jurchen Wanyan tribes who resided near the Ashi River in this region. In AD 1115 Aguda established Jin’s capital Shangjing (Upper Capital) Huining Prefecture in today’s Acheng District of Harbin. After Aguda’s death, the new emperor Wanyan Sheng ordered the construction of a new city on a uniform plan. The planning and construction emulated major Chinese cities, in particular Bianjing (Kaifeng), although the Jin capital was smaller than its Northern Song prototype. Huining Prefecture served as the first superior capital of the Jin empire until Wanyan Liang (the fourth emperor of Jin Dynasty) moved the capital to Yanjing (now Beijing) in 1153. Liang even went so far as to destroy all palaces in his former capital in 1157. Wanyan Liang’s successor Wanyan Yong (Emperor Shizong) restored the city and established it as a secondary capital in 1173. Ruins of the Shangjing Huining Prefecture were discovered and excavated about 2 km (1.2 mi)from present-day Acheng’s central urban area. The site of the old Jin capital ruins is a national historic reserve, and includes the Jin Dynasty History Museum. The museum, open to the public, was renovated in late 2005. Mounted statues of Aguda and of his chief commander Wanyan Zonghan (also Nianhan) stand in the grounds of the museum. Many of the artifacts found there are on display in nearby Harbin.
