Great Wall

The Great Wall construction began about 700 B.C. in central China, and by 1644 A.D. the Chinese had built some 35,000 miles of wall that has at times reached almost to Pyongyang in Korea to Lop Nor in Xinjiang Province (Central Asia). Splendid China's wall is 1/2 mile long, 6.5 million 2 inch bricks, and took 8 hours to build 3 feet brick by brick.
