  1. Construction started in the Spring and Autumn Period (770 – 476 BC), and lasted until the Ming Dynasty (1368-1644).As early as the Spring and Autumn Period, the state of Chu (11th Century BC-223BC) started to build the first wall. The Qi, Yan, Wei, Zhao and Qin states later joined the effort. After Emperor Qin Shihuang unified the six states, he ordered General Meng Tian to connect the existing walls and to extend them further as a front line defense against possible invasion. Thus the Great Wall was formed. It extended from Lintao (presently Lintao County in Dingxi City of Gansu Province) in the west and ended at Liaodong (presently the eastern and southern parts of Liaoning Province) in the east. It was called “Wan Li Chang Cheng” (The Long Wall of 10,000 Li).
