In the year 221 B.C, the systematic building during Shih Huang Ti rule occurred. He was the first emperor of the Ch'in dynasty under a united China. Over 1200 miles were completed during his rule, with the wall being completed in the year 204 B.C. Much later during the Ming dynasty (AD 1368-1644), the Great Wall was repaired and extended. The final fortifications were upto 2500 miles in length.

Great wall of China was first built in the 7th century B.C. when China was still divided into many small states. After the unification of China in 221 B.C., the first emperor of Qin Dynasty (you must have heard of his teracotta army) linked the walls of the three states in the north and formed the first "Wan Li Chang Cheng" (ten thousand li Great Wall, li is a Chinese length unit, 2 li = 1 km). Since then, the Great Wall was rebuilt, modified or extended throughout Chinese history for over 2,000 years. Most of the Great Wall we see today was built in the Ming Dynasty (1368-1644). In some areas, two walls built in two different dynasties can be seen running side by side.
