Rising up from the land like a sleeping dragon, its vastness seems beyond the realm of human possibility...
Explore the story of one of the wonders of the Ancient world. The Great Wall of China is the one of the most massive building achievements in history. Winding 6,000 kilometers through undulating mountains, it is the only man-made structure visible with the naked eye from space. Yet the true history of this engineering marvel is as mysterious and ephemeral as the mists of the nearby Yellow River Valley. Who called for the Great Wall's construction and how was it accomplished? And was the Great Wall truly, as legend has it, a wellspring of bloodshed, madness and death?
Examine the mysteries of one of the most awe-inspiring monuments in the world with modern engineers and leading historians.
