There are many wonderful man-made structures in the world today new and old Twenty-two centuries ago a poet by the name of Antipater made a list of the Seven Wonders of the World All of these structures were wonderful and man-made but there was one structure that belonged on the list that wasnt on it the Great Wall of China It is the longest man made structure ever created and can be referred to as the Eighth Wonder of the World The Great Wall of China isnt one continuous wall it is several walls that have been connected over time The wall was built completely by hand and extends over 4500 miles long across the northern boarder of China It wasnt built in a straight line because they believed demons from the north would be able to pass through the wall They thought demons only traveled in straight lines and therefore couldnt cross crocked lines so the wall was built with several curves and turns It is said that the wall resembles a sleeping dragon and the dragon is an important symbol of China It took around two thousand years to build It is about twenty or thirty feet high and fifteen feet wide It is also the only man-made structure that can be seen by the naked eye from outer space The original ideas for the wall was to keep out invaders from the North to keep the people busy building so they wouldnt cause trouble for the new empire and to keep the people in The small states of China each built its own wall to keep out invaders but the major portions of the wall were built connected and repaired during the dynasties of Qin Han and Ming During the time known as the Warring States Period in China was when the individual walls were first being constructed This time period lasted from 475 BC until 221
