China finds new section of Great Wall

A newly discovered section of the Great Wall of China shows the wall extended 11km further east than previously thought.

The newly discovered section, built during the Qin (221-206 BC) and Han (206 BC to 220 AD) dynasties, was found in northeastern Jilin province, Xinhua news agency said.

A state-sponsored study team found a 172-metre-long section of ruins from the wall section in Tonghua county, 11 kilometres (6.7 miles) further east than what was previously thought to be the wall’s terminus, it said.
