Construction of Great Wall

The Qin Empire covered a very large geographical area. It stretched all the way south to what is now known as Vietnam and Korea, but the main kingdom remained in the Yellow River Valley. The Great Wall of China is one of the symbols of ancient China and Qin Inventions. During the Warring States period, the seven rival dynasties made fortifications to protect their territories by building walls. The First Emperor decided to restore and connect the separate sections of the Great Wall which was started as far back as the 3rd century to ward off invaders from the north. Building the great wall came with a huge financial burden and cost a lot of human lives. The people of China harbored a great deal of resentment towards the Qin emperor due to the loss of human lives. They were also burdened with high taxes and numerous public projects.

Why was Great Wall Built in China

Emperors wanted to protect their border. The effort was costly in materials and manpower. It is said that over 1 million persons died in its construction. The walls had to be kept well-gaurded at the expense of the emperor. Another reason for the wall became the use of it as a barrier when a battle was fought at the border. Therefore, more than one motive caused the building of the wall. Since it was used to prevent northern bandit tribes from crossing the border, it was a border point for the emperor's soldiers to gather and defend. It was also a barrier during battle skirmishes! Thus, the Great Wall of China was built and maintained through the centuries and is an admired landmark in our world today.
