Archaeologist discovers another Great Wall in China

  • Archaeologist Gary Feinman was only hunting for pottery shards in China when he discovered something rattling: An earth wall, reaching about 15 feet high in some places. 

    It wasn't a known fact that a wall was built in Shandong in around 500 BC but Feinman discovered that it wasn't only built but was also quite well-designed and well-preserved. 

    The archaeologist suspects that the wall, which was built under the Qi Dynasty, could be many hundred miles long and the NPR explains that it's built with "file-grained soil" and is fairly impressive.  

    Reports suggest that the "Great Qi Wall" was constructed out of protection from other dynasties in China.
