  • Long-wall construction on the Mongolian Steppe during the 11th-13th centuries AD

    Research carried out recently on the Liao/Jin Dynasty Walls have resulted in the conclusion that these Walls were not for military purposes.

    Very interesting.

    Any information on the exact location of this wall and how to visit?

      Yes. It is next to the town of 满洲里市. Not more than 5km from the centre. But I expect problems to get there. You first had to cross the Russian border ...
      Most of this wall runs in Outer Mongolia, some in Russia and only about 50km in China.
      The exact locations of all of the photos shown in this article are well known to us.

      chinoook's 1st law: Structurally weak walls tend to have double structures.
      chinoook's 2nd law: Newer walls are built next older walls, not over them.
      chinoook's 3rd law: Similar problems lead to similar solutions.

        Thanks - sounds like there could be problems with the border crossings. Is there any reasonable way to get there from the Mongolian side?

          No idea, never been there. Mongolia would be interesting (lots of walls) but sometimes in the (far) future ...
