⮚Great Wall of China:
The Great Wall of China is an ancient series of walls and fortifications located in northern China, built around 500 years ago. The length of this wall is about 13000 miles or 21000kms long. The construction of this wall continued for 100 years in many dynasties. This Great Wall of China was not built all at one time. In 7th and 8th century BC, there were battles happening frequently among the states of the Spring-Autumn and Warring States dynasty and in order to defend themselves, they began to build walls and towers on the borders of China. It was the state Chu who first built the wall. It was during the Qin Dynasty that the kingdom of Qin united the different parts into one empire. To defend off the invasions from northern invaders, Emperor Qin Shi Huang had all the walls joined up. Thus, the Great Wall came into being. That’s how the history of great china sounds like.
⮚Roman Colosseum, Italy:
