One-fifth of Ming Dynasty Great Wall in Inner Mongolia gone
About a fifth of the Great Wall built in the Ming Dynasty (1368-1644) has disappeared in north China's Inner Mongolia Autonomous Region, an archaeologist said on Tuesday.
The vanished parts were 157.515 km long, said Tala, head of the Inner Mongolia Autonomous Regional Institute of Cultural and Historical Relics and Archaeology.
The statistics were based on newly-released survey results from the Inner
Mongolia Autonomous Regional Surveying and Mapping Bureau and the Inner
Mongolia Autonomous Regional Institute of Aerial Remote Sensing, Surveying
and Mapping, he said.
