Today, there are few parts of the wall of Qinshihuang left. Today’s Great Wall follows a different route. It comes from the time of the Ming Dynasty.
People from the north part of China took some parts of the country. The Ming wanted to keep them out. So at the end of the 15th century, they began to build walls along the northern border. The Ming walls run about 1500 miles from Qinhuangdao in the east to Jiayuguan in the west. The walls followed the shape of the land and so it goes up and down a lot. It’s hard work for walking. On the top of the wall there was space for soldiers to march and there were watchtowers.
