... together. The effort required hundreds of thousands of workers, many of whom were political prisoners. An estimated 180 million cubic metres of rammed earth was used to form the core of the wall.
Ming engineers made determined efforts to revamp the eroding bastion, facing it with some 60 million cubic metres of bricks and stone slabs. This project took over a century.
