Great Wall - Ba Da Ling

Although the walls we usually see are built with bricks, not all sections of the Great Wall are brick. The Han (206 B.C.-220 A.D.) walls in Gan Su province were built with mud and grass. Two thousand years passed, these walls still stand strong today.

People tested the bricks used to build the Ming wall. The bricks are as strong as our modern concrete bricks.
