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.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
