< h3>Myth # 1: the material for the great wall of China was the bones of people who died during its construction
During the construction of the Wall, both slaves (there were not so many of them) and free, ruined peasants and artisans were involved. The work was the hardest, they had to work in any weather, people were hungry and slept in the open air. One of the popular legends says that the husband of a simple Chinese woman Meng zhian Mu died during construction.

Numerous archaeological excavations have proved that the Wall was built with the help of handy materials-earth, stone, sun-dried bricks. The solution was mixed on the basis of rice flour mixed with lime. No embedded bones were found.
