The Great Wall 长城 of the Qin Dynasty

ShanHaiGuan, east of Beijing at the coast, is at the eastern end of the Great Wall.

This is located near QinHuangDao and is closely associated with China's first emperor. Qin Dynasty: 221 - 206 BC.


Qin Shi Huang joined together walls at China's northern frontier into the first Great Wall. He also ended feudalism and unified much of China. JaiYuGuan, the western-most gate of the Qin Great Wall, where trade along the old Silk Road also took place, lies thousands of kilometers from here.
