Why when and by what dynasty was the Great Wall of China built? All the walls were built for the purpose of military defense the Great Wall is unique. It was first built in the  7th century B.C. when China was still divided into many small states. After the unification of China in 221  B.C., the first emperor of Qin Dynasty (you must have heard of his teracotta army) linked the walls of the  three states in the north and formed the first "Wan Li Chang Cheng" (ten thousand li Great Wall, li is a  Chinese length unit, 2 li = 1 km). Since then, the Great Wall was rebuilt, modified or extended throughout  Chinese history for over 2,000 years. Identify some political, social, and ideological contributions of the Han to the development of the imperial bureaucratic state and the expansion of the empire. Economy
