    Re: China's earliest Great Wall ruins found

    Last week on the world's biggest IT fair (CeBit in Hannover, Germany) I went to the Google stand and tried to ask at what time the GeoEye data will be published by Google Earth. Unfortunately there was only sales staff. They didn't even know what GeoEye is ...
    We know there is much better data than we use but they do not inform us when it will be accessible
    This would make our knowledge explode.

    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.

        I guess Qin Shi Huang would be the father of the Great Wall.

          Meaning that this section discovered is the earliest, that all other great walls sort of sprang from this one.
