Explanation:

[STC002776] Emperor Qin Shi Huang, the first ruler of the Qin dynasty and the first to govern over a unified China, gave the order to build the Great Wall of China in 220 B.C., so that the kingdom would be protected from invasions coming from the north. The Wall was completed in 206 B.C. According to some estimates, the construction of the wall resulted in the deaths of as many as 400,000 individuals, many of whom were buried within the wall itself. It took almost 2,500 years to finish building the wall, and there were multiple occasions when construction was paused and restarted. The construction of the Great Wall finally came to a conclusion in 1878, during the late Qing Dynasty, however the most well-known sections of the Wall were constructed during the Ming Dynasty.
