-- AMAZING GREAT WALL FACTS --

  • The first section of the Great Wall took 10 years to build - at the rate of about one mile per day.

  • At its peak the Ming Wall contained thousands of individual forts and towers and was guarded by more than a million men.

  • It's estimated that the cost, in modern terms, of the Qin Great Wall would be $260 billion, which would pay for roughly half of all annual construction in U.S.

  • If you took all the bricks from the Ming portion of the Wall alone, they could circle the Earth at the equator in a wall five feet high and three feet thick.

  • The Great Wall is 4,500 miles long--the distance between Miami and the North Pole.

  • It's estimated that for every person building the Qin Great Wall, another six were needed to provide building materials and supplies.
