Archaeologists in China have discovered six miles of ruins on the border of the Gansu province and the Ningxia Hui Autonomous Region that they say is a stretch of the Great Wall. Experts have thought that the Wall had extended this far north, but this is the first physical evidence to support that theory. Not well preserved, the ruins are as short as three feet in places.
