Qin organised the Great Wall to be built to stop the northern invaders from invading China. The wall started to be built in 221 B.C and the highest point stands at 14 meters tall! Qin sent millions of people to work on the wall against their will. More than 1 million people died during the making of the wall.
Qin created a terracotta army to protect him in the afterlife. Over 8,000 lifelike soldiers, as well as horses and chariots, were created and hidden underneath the ground. They were found in 1974 around 1.5km east of Qin's tomb after farmers were digging a well and stumbled upon this hidden army.
Qin's tomb was hidden underneath a man-made pyramid that is 76 metres tall. The emperor was buried in a suit made of jade and was guarded by multiple walls and booby traps to stop grave robbers.
The Ling Canal was built under Qin's command. The canal connects 2 river systems, Guilin's Li River and the Xiang River. It also connected the north and south of China which was an important political move to help unify China. These two rivers opened up a lot of travel and trade for people
