Great Wall Tour
The Great Wall, first built during the Spring
and Autumn Period (770-476 B.C.), was the crystallization
of the wisdom of the Chinese working people in ancient times.
It was a military project built by various small kingdoms
for holding back nomadic tribes coming from the north as well
as for protection against each other. After unifying the six
states in 221 B.C., the first emperor of the Qin Dynasty issued
an order that the walls originally built by the States of
Qin, Yan, and Zhao be reinforced and linked together for defense
against attack by the slave-owner regime in the northern part
of China. This is how the well-known 3,700 mi. (6,000 km.)
Great Wall came into being and it has played a significant
role in protecting the economic and cultural developments
in the central plain area of China. See
