Two interesting facts about the Great Wall
· This part is pretty easy just assess any of the following
· such as facts about its size, length, purposes, varied materials, labor force, and its phases of construction
· be pretty specific here, don’t just list a fact, but also assess why you think these facts are impressive or cool
What was the purpose of the Wall and how successful was it?
· This part requires a bit of thought. Walls are much more than just physical barriers, they also mark clearly defining boundaries for cultures and they are also symbolic and psychological barriers as well. Think about how the ancient Chinese felt when they saw this Wall as well as how outsiders (particularly the Mongols) felt about seeing this. Did it signify the superiority of China? Did it mark a clear line between civilized society and barbarians?
