      China's Inner Mongolia undertakes most ambitious Great Wall survey,
      repair

      Xinhua News Agency [China], 2008-05-11
      The most extensive preservation project for the "Great Wall" has been
      launched by the Inner Mongolia Autonomous Region. "A survey of Ming
      dynasty (1368-1662 AD) Great Wall is in full swing, and repair has
      started for Qin Dynasty (221-206 BC) Great Wall," said Mingri, deputy
      director of the regional cultural department. Inner Mongolia has the
      longest section of the Great Wall among all provinces. The Wall built in
      different historical periods runs more than 20,000 kilometers in Inner
      Mongolia, Mingri said. The project focuses on protecting the original
      architecture, including some reinforcement work. It will take two to
      three years, he said. The major work this year is to finish repairs on
      the Qin-era sections of the Wall and investigate what needs to be done
      on the Han Dynasty sections, he said.
