The Great Wall of China
      Out of all the military monuments that exist in the contemporary society from traditional history, The Great Wall of China is among the most least understood. It stands high in a remote section of the society and can only be compared to a stone dragon with its menacing twists and turns as it disappears into the horizon when viewed is a wonder in itself.

Several walls were built and some of them date as early as 7th century B.C. and in collection they were referred to as the Great Wall of China of Chang Cheng in Chinese. Famous among the walls built is the one that was built by the first Emperor of China Qin Shi Huang in 220 to 206 B.C. but the wall has ever since been re constructed, reinforces, modified and maintained in the subsequent dynasties that existed in the society like the Ming Dynasty (Turnbull 12).
