Description:

The paper relates that the Great Wall is a descriptive name for the protective wall that was started during the 3rd century BC and was continued to be added to until the later 15th and 16th centuries. The paper reveals that the Great Wall is one of China's most recognized and well-known landmarks and is also a World Heritage Site (Zhu 19). The paper reveals that in spite of popular belief, the Great Wall itself is not necessarily one single wall that runs unbroken along its entire approximate 1500 mile length. Rather, the paper explains that the Great Wall consists of a series of walls with fortifications on them that are generally inter-connected if not in physical construction at least in nominal theme such as the defensive barrier against northern tribes such as the Mongols that it was originally built for.
