Archaeologists find predecessor for Great Wall of China

The Great Wall of China, one of the most famous man-made structures, began its life after the Emperor Qin unified the country in 221 BCE…or did it? The archaeological couple Gary Feinman and Linda Nicholas-both of the Field Museum-discovered a pre-wall wall. Fineman takes us back to ancient China for more. Photo: Flickr/m j c
