The Great Wall, China
The Chinese built the Great Wall over 2000 years ago, and took over 100 years to build. The wall is completely man made. In Chinese, the name of the wall translates to “long fortress”, hence it was used for the defense of the dynasties which ruled China.
The Great Wall stretches from Shanhaiguan in the east to Lop Nur in the west, along an arc that roughly delineates the southern edge of Inner Mongolia. The most comprehensive archaeological survey, using advanced technologies, has recently concluded that the entire Great Wall, with all of its branches, stretches for 8,851.8 km (5,500.3 mi).
One of the seven wonders of the world, the Great Wall of China is a man-made structure that was constructed over two thousand years ago and took about 100 years to complete. The vastness of this project brings to light the immense capabilities of man.
