Information

The Great Wall of China is located northwest of Beijing and goes through the countryside over deserts, hills, and plains for several thousand miles. This wall was built by individual states and later after that Qin Shi Huangdi, to keep out invaders and to protect the Silk Road trade. Although this wall was good in theory, it proved to be ineffective when the Mongols and the Manchu were able to penetrate it and get inside China.
