Transcript of The Great Wall of China

The Great Wall of China Wall extends from ShanHaiGuan to the JiaYuGuan Pass. The wall was originally built to keep neighboring invaders out but not it
stands as a tribute to the amazing ingenuity of the Chinese.
The Great Wall extends
about 5,500 miles long The Great Wall of China
can be seen from Space The wall has never stopped being constructed. The qin dynasty in 221-206 BC are
the first to start constructing the wall. The Han Dynasty then came about in
206BC-220AD and extended the
Great Wall westward through the Gobi Desert The Ming Dynasty then came in at 1368-1644 and built the biggest, longest, strongest, and most ornate wall, and these are the walls we are familiar with today. In Chinese the wall is called "Wan-Li Qang-Qeng"
which means 10,000-Li Long Wall The Great Wall of China was built mainly by
soldiers, civilians, farmers and prisoners. The Great Wall was built out of bricks, stone, and dirt. There were also slabs of stone used for the base and sides of the wall, and it is filled in with dirt, rocks, and rubble. The wall ranges in height from 15 to 30 feet, with watch towers rising at regular intervals above it.
Visitors can travel the 13 foot wide roadway on the top of the wall. 2. If the Great Wall of China would have never came about
then China would have had to get an alternative to keep
the Mongols and other invading countries out. So instead of
having the Great Wall of China built back in the Qin Dynasty
they would of had to set up watch towers every a distance so
they could keep track or see if anyone was invading the country.
This wouldn't be as affective as the Great Wall but it does atleast
give China fighting chance against the Mongols.
