Behind hundreds of thousands of Dead people


Behind hundreds of thousands of dead people, The Great Wall of China was constructed.

The Great Wall was a man–made barrier that is about 21.196 kilometers long, 9.14 meters(30 feet wide) and 15 meters high. It is one of the seven construction wonders in the world, not only for its long history, but also its massive construction size, and its unique architectural style as well. The Great Wall of China goes far back to the 3rd century BC. It has been the site of multiple battles and skirmishes between the Chinese and various people across history, including the Xiongnu during the Qin dynasty, the Khitans during the Song Dynasty and the Mongols during the Ming dynasty.

The Great Wall of China is located in Beijing, China. Moreover, the Great Wall of China was constructed under the ancient emperor Qin Shi Huang’s orders. In 220 BC, under Qin Shi Huang, sections of earlier fortifications were joined together to form a united defense system against invasions from the north. Construction continued up to the Ming dynasty (1368-1644), when the Great Wall became the world’s largest military structure. Furthermore, The Great Wall was used for preventing intruders from intruding China from the north in the past.

Now, it is used for tourist attraction and for people to enjoy the view. People’s reaction of The Great Wall were very negative because the process killed many workers that had families. In conclusion, I think people should visit The Great Wall because it is an incredible feature of engineering of China and greatest man-made structure that may ever be built by mankind in ancient time.
