The Great Wall of China
October 25, 2022
The Great Wall of China is actually a series of defensive fortifications along the northern border of China that total to a length of over thirteen thousand miles. Some parts of the wall were erected as early as 200 BC, but the most well- known portions were built by the Ming Dynasty starting in the 14th century. The Great Wall served not only as a barrier to the Mongol hordes from the north, but also as a transportation path across the northern Chinese frontier.
