The Great Wall of China is a series of fortifications made of stone, brick, tamped earth, wood, and other materials, generally built along an east-to-west line across the historical northern borders of China in part to protect the Chinese Empire or its prototypical states against intrusions by various nomadic groups or military incursions by various warlike peoples or forces. Several walls were being built as early as the 7th century BC; these, later joined together and made bigger and stronger, are now collectively referred to as the Great Wall. Especially famous is the wall built between 220–206 BC by the first Emperor of China, Qin Shi Huang. Little of that wall remains. Since then, the Great Wall has on and off been rebuilt, maintained, and enhanced; the majority of the existing wall are from the Ming Dynasty.

De grote muur van China is een serie fortificaties gemaakt van steen, baksteen, aangedruct aarde, hout en andere materialen, over het algemeen gebouwd langs een Oost-west lijn over de historische noordelijke grenzen van China voor een deel aan het beschermen van het Chinese rijk of haar prototypische Staten tegen indringers door verschillende nomadische groepen of militaire invallen door verschillende oorlogszuchtige volkeren of krachten. Verschillende muren werden gebouwd zo spoedig de 7e eeuw v.Chr.; deze, later samengevoegd en maakte een groter en sterker, zijn nu gezamenlijk aangeduid als de grote muur. Vooral beroemd is de muur gebouwd tussen 220-206 v.Chr door de eerste keizer van China, Qin Shi Huang. Weinig van die muur blijft. Sindsdien, de grote muur in- en uitschakelen opnieuw is opgebouwd, onderhouden, en verbeterde; de meerderheid van de bestaande muur zijn uit de Ming-dynastie.
