Why was the Great Wall of China built?

The Great Wall of China is a Chinese fortification built from 3rd century BC until the beginning of the 17th century, in order to protect the various dynasties from raids by Mongol, Turkic, and other nomadic tribes coming from areas in modern-day Mongolia and Manchuria.

It was to protect China from the invasion of the Xiongnu people from Mongolia. The Xiongnu tribe was China's main enemy at that time. The Chinese built the Great Wall to prevent them from entering and conquering China. Originally made up of shorter walls between factions, the wall was fortified and lengthened under the emperor Qin Shi Huang beginning in 221 BC.

The defenders could shoot arrows and cannon at enemies from the Great Wall, which was cleverly designed with small holes in the walls for defense and attack at the same time. Although the building of the architectural wonder sacrificed many lives, it was still worth it in the end as the Mongols were mostly kept out of China.

The modern use of the wall is tourism, although much of it has fallen into disrepair or crumbled away completely.
It was built to link the remains of old fortresses and so it could protect northern china from th Xiongu

When was the Great Wall of China built?

The Great Wall of China was built from the 3rd century B.C.E to the 17th century AD, in order to prevent the Mongols from entering and invading China.

The Great Wall is a series of stone and earthen fortifications in China, built, rebuilt, and maintained between the 5th century BC and the 16th century to protect the northern borders of the Chinese Empire during the rule of successive dynasties. Several walls, referred to as the Great Wall of China, were built since the 5th century BC. The most famous is the wall built between 200 BC - 220 BC by the first Emperor of China, Qin Shi Huang; little of it remains; it was much farther north than the current wall, which was built during the Ming Dynasty.

Walls were being built in order to protect the Chinese empire as early as the 7th century BC. However, the collection of walls which have become known as The Great Wall of China were mainly built from 220 to 206 BC.

Ice Hockey History
Great Wall of China

Why has hockey remained so popular for so long?

== == Hockey has been able to change with the advent of new technology, such as fiber material sticks and skates, and modernizing rule changes, such as the video replay and two referees. The speed and skills of the players have improved and even the size of the players have gotten taller and heavier over the last 30 years. The average NHL player of the 1960's, would not get a second look from modern era hockey scouts now. A player who is less than six feet tall and under 190 pounds is not going to get much of a look in today's scouting reports, and if he can't skate really well and shoot hard, he is not going to the "big show" at all. Hockey is the fastest team sort in the world, with constant action all the time. Compare that to baseball, where the fans fall asleep all the time, or soccer where scoring some times doesn't happen in a whole 90 minute game, and the players are more worried about their hair being nice looking than the game . Compare hockey to basketball, where players sit out a game due to a finger injury or because they fell on their elbow. Hockey players play "hurt " all the time, and consider it a badge of honor to come on to the ice after taking facial injuries, with a couple of dozen stitches in their mug. My best reason to like hockey as a sport..........the players are nice guys who are humble and take the time to talk to the fans, even when thay have a plane to catch, a 4 hour flight, and won't hit the hotel bed until about 4 am in the next city, where they will play in less than 12 hours. Pro hockey players have a greulling schedule with games about every second day. In January, the Toronto Maple Leafs will play 13 games in 29 nights. Compare that to American NFL players who only play a 16 game football SEASON.
