Archaeologists from Chicago's Field Museum have been mapping out China's first great wall.
“The wow factor here is, of course, that there was a ‘Great Wall’ before the famous ‘Great Wall,’ ” Feinman said of the remnants, which still stand 15-feet tall in some places. “People knew where little segments were, but they didn’t know the full extent.”
The first Great Wall suffered a fall,
so maybe was not great after all.
The second, which came later,
is reckoned greater.
