The Great Wall of ChinaJust like about anything else in China, the Wall is not really inspectable via Google Earth, or any other available web mapping services. Examining the available images quickly shows that we are being shown the renovated portion of the wall. I doubt the tourist attraction can provide us with any answers, as to what the remote portions of the wall look like. There are a few interesting images out there, but that's about it.
I was looking at this thread about blown up mountains, and one of the images immediately made me think about the Great Wall of China. I think our wall could be an ancient (or not so ancient) road. I don't know, may be the lower areas were flooded or whatever.
I do not believe for a second that it was a defensive structure at any point of its existence. A simple analysis of its defensive qualities shows that is indefensible and unsuppliable.
- Anyways, these are my 3 cents which I have nothing to back up with. At the same time the claims of the Wall being a defensive structure do not appear to have any believable backing either.
- May be it could have something to do with the Silk Road...
