About Wuxi. . .
about 3,000 years ago, the area where Wuxi exists was called Mei.
It was settled by two fugitive princes from northern China. The city
was formally founded during the Han Dynasty, as the capital of a feudal
state in the region. The town's abundance of Tin deposits was why
it was first called "Youxi", which translates literally to 'has tin'.
When the supply of tin ran out in 25AD, Wuxi (pronounced Woo-She), which
means 'no tin' , became its present name.
