This paper traces the routes of the entire length of the Great Wall along China’s northern border in the Qin and Western Han Dynasties. By comparing the results of recent archaeological surveys and excavations with historical records preserved in Sima Qian’s Shiji and Ban Gu’s Hanshu, the various components of the Great Wall can be determined and placed in their proper stages of construction.
