The Great Wall of China

Even at more than 2,000 years old, the Great Wall of China remains one of the most impressive engineering wonders of the world—stretching 1,500 miles, from the mountains of Korea to the Gobi Desert. That’s roughly the distance between Miami and Maine.

The Great Wall is actually a series of walls built and rebuilt by different dynasties over a 1,000-year period. It was designed to protect ancient Chinese empires from marauding tribes in the north. The first section of the Great Wall, the Qin, took 10 years to build at an astonishing rate of about one mile per day! Equivalent to building 30 of the great pyramids of Egypt, it’s estimated that for every person building the Qin Wall, six were needed to provide materials, food, and supplies. About 70 percent of China’s population at the time were involved in the construction.

The Great Wall averages from 15 to 30 feet high and from 15 to 25 feet wide, with about a 13-foot wide roadway on top. It’s also been long rumored that the Great Wall is the only man-made structure that can be seen from the moon. While the Great Wall cannot really be seen from the moon, it can be faintly seen from the international space station. In fact, in the past decade, scientists have used satellite data to discover more than 600 miles of the Great Wall that have been buried over time.

In 1966, Mao Tse-tung launched the political campaign known as the Cultural Revolution, in which he appealed to the Chinese people to destroy anything associated with traditional culture. Unappreciated for its historic value, the magnificent wall surrounding Beijing and other sections were torn down or cannibalized for material during this period. Modern Chinese now realize the historical value of the Great Wall and are struggling to preserve and rebuild this national treasure.
